The worst thing about a great story is that it has to end! Luckily here at Random House Children’s Publishers we have a nearly endless selection of amazing stories for you to read. If you’re looking to start something new this spring then why not try one of our brilliant series! The perfect way to make a great story last longer…


For those of you who like ghost stories we have Jonathan Stroud’s excellent Lockwood and Co. series. Start with The Screaming Staircase and you will be whisked away to a country overrun with ghosts! Follow the smallest and most ramshackle agency as they face the case of a lifetime. After this frighteningly good book you can follow Lockwood and Co. in The Whispering Skull and The Dagger in the Desk.

hetty feather

If you’d like to take a step back in time then look no further than Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather series. Start with Hetty Feather and learn about the life of a Victorian child abandoned at the Foundling Hospital through the fiery and spirited Hetty. Follow this with the equally brilliant Sapphire Battersea and Emerald Star.

murder most unladylike

Like a good old fashioned mystery? Why not try Robin Stevens’ outstanding series A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery. Start with Murder Most Unladylike and uncover a world of murder, mystery and mayhem at Deepdean School for Girls. Follow Daisy and Hazel as they hunt for evidence of a crime that no one else knows has happened. Once you’ve solved this case there are more lined up for you with Arsenic For Tea and First Class Murder.


Or if you fancy a little fantasy then you can’t get much littler than the tiny nomes who live under the floorboards of a large department store. Start Terry Pratchett’s magnificent The Bromeliad Trilogy with Truckers: The First Book of the Nomes and follow the nomes as they work to escape the soon to be demolished store. To follow the nomes on their other adventures read the equally exciting Diggers and Wings.

If you’ve already made your way through these incredible stories then why not take a look at our new books!
