It is an excellent week for readers aged 8 to 11. Not only is there a brand-new Timmy Failure, there is a brand-new Truly Tan. Our favourites shelf is a happy place, indeed.
The sixth Truly Tan mystery, Trapped, sees our heroine plant-sitting for her neighbour Mrs Topple, but what is that strange car? And who are the people on the verandah? We’re certain that Tan can work it out.
And our our favourite detective, Timmy Failure, is dealing with the serious issue of the cat stealing his pants. And we all know how bad that can be. Find out if Timmy succeeds in finding treasure on Key West, Florida.
Truly Tan: Trapped! – Jen Storer – ABC Books – PB – $17
Timmy Failure: The Cat Stole My Pants – Stephan Pastis – Walker – HB – $18
Jen Storer is coming back for another visit, ready to chat with readers large and small about her latest books:
- the second Danny Best, covering his adventures with kitchen statues, creative-writing competitions and severed arms (Danny Best: Never Wrong, illustrated by Mitch Vane, PB, $18);
- a picture book about a dog getting his own home (Blue the Builder’s Dog, illustrated by Andrew Joyner, HB, $25);
- and the fifth Truly Tan book — has she been hoodwinked by the new girl in town? (Truly Tan: Hoodwinked!, PB, $17).
Jen will be here at 11am on Saturday 26 November, so come and say hi!
Truly Tan fans need wait no longer! The fourth exciting book in the series is out now, Truly Tan: Freaked! Tan’s latest case is to investigate the tall, dark stranger who has moved in to their house, full of secrets and mysteries. Will they solve the mysteries before the stranger seizes control? We have lots of copies in the shop, even some signed by the author, for $17.
And Jen Storer herself will be at Fairfieldbooks to meet Tan’s fans and do some book signing. Come meet Jen at 11am on Saturday 22 November! Look forward to seeing you all here.
After various author visits and events we have some books signed by the authors:

We are very lucky so have so many authors who give up their time to come and visit us. Take advantage of their efforts. Signed books make terrific gifts, or just spoil yourself.
