Happy publication day to Jacqueline Roy and Gianna Pollero!

The Gosling Girl by Jacqueline Roy and Monster Doughnuts: Cyclops on a Mission by Gianna Polero are both released today!


The Gosling Girl is a moving, powerful account of systemic, institutional and internalised racism, and of how the marginalised fight back. It delves into the psychological after-effects of a crime committed in childhood, exploring intersections between race and class as Michelle’s story is co-opted and controlled by those around her. Jacqueline writes with a cool restraint and The Gosling Girlis a raw and powerful novel that will stay with the reader long after they have turned the last page.


This is the sequel to Monster Doughnuts. Tenth-generation monster-hunter Grace has a unique way of bumping off monsters. She and her sister run a bakery, Cake Hunters, where they make fabulous creations full of a special exploding baking powder that will get rid of any troublesome monster!

And now Grace has a new and unlikely partner in crime – 360-year-old cyclops Mr Harris. They have a new and perilous mission from the Secret Service – to rid the city of a pesky Bottom-Biter who is causing havoc. If only Mr Harris would stop just eating the monsters and honing his advanced patisserie skills in Grace’s bakery, what a team they’ll make!

Perfect for ages 7 -9 year olds.
