Janelle McCurdy Author Visits

We are thrilled to be bringing the fantastic Janelle McCurdy, author of the brilliant Mia and the Traitor of Nubis to your school on the 9th of October.


Mia and the Traitor of Nubis is the second adventure set within the fantasy world of the Umbra Tales series! Janelle will be sharing her book and speaking to the children about being an author during a very special assembly. We hope the children will have a  fantastic day.


We know that author visits often inspire children to want to read and share the author's books, so following the event there will be an opportunity for the children to meet Janelle and have their own copy of the book personalised and signed both at an after school book signing, or via pre-orders as we know that sometimes children are unavailable after school.

Please use this form to pre-order books and guarantee availability. Pre-orders need to be with us by midday the 8th of October. Additional books will be brought into school for the book signing and they will be available to buy and be signed by Janelle on the day. 


Please choose School Event as the delivery option at the checkout.

Mia and the Lightcasters by Janelle McCurdy, illustrated by Ana Latese

Mia always dreamed of being an umbra tamer until she met the wild creature on the Nightmare Plains.

Since that day, she prefers to stay safe within the walls of Nubis. Safe, that is, until a surprise attack. With her parents captured, Mia's only hope is to travel to the City of Light to find help.

But with only her little brother, two friends and one solitary tamed umbra, the journey feels impossible. Mia not only has to overcome her fears, she also has to learn to harness her umbra taming abilities if they are to complete the quest in time.

The Elite are imprisoned, the Reaper King is once again banished from the world and the city of Nubis is trying to return to normal. So is Mia, but it's not so easy. Coming to terms with new powers and being the tamer of two umbra, she's also plagued by nightmares.

Is the fear all in her imagination? Or are the agents of darkness somehow planning another assault? Once again, Mia's skills and resilience will be tested to their limit.
