Meet Holly Hopkinson the star of a new series by Charlie P Brooks, illustrated throughout by Katy Riddell. Holly’s hilarious diary tells the story of her family’s move to the countryside – which gets really interesting when she gets a magical pocket watch that gives her the power to hypnotize – let the mayhem begin!

HarperCollins Children’s Books also have a fun competition for children to have enjoy on the Summer Reading Challenge website. They are challenging children to draw a funny doodle about a funny thing that has happened to them. It can be about anything they like! The doodle that makes the author and publisher laugh-out-loud the most will win a copy of the book and a set of other brilliant books from HarperCollins Children’s Books.
We would love to see you enjoying the pack on social media using #HollyHopkinson and tagging readingagency and HarperCollinsCh.
