It’s been a real fantasy adventure for us – now it’s your turn!

We had a blast at the launch of A.J. Ponder’s latest book Quest The sword fighters Tara Macintyre and Ethan Bloor-Wilson from The Company of the Dragons were amazing, and there were lots of kids enjoying running around with foam swords.

We hope to do it again soon at Eileen’s Launch of Ezaara – so if you live in Wellington keep your eyes peeled for archery, swords and more!

In the meantime we hope you enjoy Quest

We’re excited to announce the release of our latest book, a You Choose Adventure. With over 24 endings and a glossary of the insects you meet during the adventure at the back – It’s a great story at a tiny price.  Buy now to support a young inquisitive mind, and two amazing authors, including Sir Julius Vogel award winning A.J.

YOU are Greenville’s only hope. You choose which path you take. You can fail your mission or succeed your wildest expectations. But beware, within these pages lies great danger – giant bugs, ants, ladybirds, praying mantises and more. You might come to a grizzly end, or be transformed but whatever happens a real hero keeps fighting, even after they fail.
Are you ready?
