The Matilda Effect by Ellie Irving
Matilda loves science and inventing. Her heroes are Marie Curie, Leonardo da Vinci and Thomas Edison, and one day she wants to be a famous inventor herself. So, when she doesn’t win the school science fair, she’s devastated, especially as the judges didn’t believe she'd come up with her entry on her own!
When Matilda shares her woes with her Grandma Joss, she's astonished to learn her grandma was once a scientist herself, an astrophysicist who discovered her very own planet. Trouble is, Grandma Joss was also overlooked as her boss, Professor Smocks, stole her discovery for himself and he's about to be presented with a Nobel Prize. Matilda concocts a plan. So begins a race against time on a journey through Paris, Hamburg and Stockholm, and on which they encounter a famous film star, a circus, and a wanted diamond thief...
The Matilda Effect!
For the Record by Ellie Irving
Luke is a gifted but awkward ten-year-old who is obsessed with world records, and is nervous about starting senior school a year early as 'the swot with the dead dad'.
When Luke's tiny, unique Jersey village is in danger of being bulldozed to the ground to make way for a waste incinerator plant, the only way to stop it is by putting the village on the map: by breaking 50 world records in a week. With the help of geeky adjudicator Simon and a colourful cast of oddball village characters, this is Luke's chance to shine, to solve his mum's relationship problems, and to face his biggest fears - with bizarre, extraordinary consequences.
