On the Road: Stories to Make a Journey Fly By: That Time I Got Kidnapped, The Taylor Turbochaser, Th

Thrilling adventures and hilarious capers from three brilliant children’s authors in one audiobook collection. THAT TIME I GOT KIDNAPPED When fourteen-year-old Jacob misses his connecting flight in Chicago, he tries to complete his journey to LA by Greyhound bus. But on board he meets American teenager Jennifer, who is carrying a mysterious package and being chased by an enigmatic pursuer known only as ‘the Cowboy’… And she needs a partner in crime. The unlikely pair soon find themselves on the road-trip of a lifetime – a funny, filmic, page-turning adventure. THE KID WHO CAME FROM SPACE A small village in the wilds of Northumberland is rocked by the disappearance of twelve-year-old Tammy. Only her twin brother, Ethan, knows she is safe – and the extraordinary truth of where she is. It is a secret he must keep, or risk never seeing her again. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to give up. A remarkable story of sibling connection, friendship and interstellar adventure. THE TAYLOR TURBOCHASER The Taylor TurboChaser is a road-trip rollercoaster… with a twist. At its heart is the unforgettable Amy Taylor. Amy loves cars, and dreams of being a driver. But there’s a major catch: her slow old wheelchair with its broken wheel. When Amy finally gets a new electric one, it’s exciting… at first. But standard engines only have so much power. And that’s where Rahul comes in – Amy’s best friend and genius inventor. Soon Rahul turns a wheelchair into… a supercar! And so the Taylor TurboChaser is born. But when it all goes suddenly wrong Amy is going to have to hit the road – and drive…

Author: Ross Welford Narrator: Assad Zaman, Aysha Kala, Chris Coxon, Luke Johnson Release Date: June 2020

Three extraordinary adventures from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author Ross Welford. TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER ’My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty-nine and again four years later when he was twelve.’ On Al Chaudhury’s twelfth birthday his beloved Grandpa Byron gives him a letter from Al’s late father. In it Al receives a mission: travel back to 1984 in a secret time machine and save his father’s life. WHAT NOT TO DO IF YOU TURN INVISIBLE Turning invisible at will: it’s one way of curing your acne. But far more drastic than thirteen year-old Ethel Leatherhead intended when she tried a combination of untested medicines and a sunbed. It’s fun at first, being invisible. And aided by her friend Boydy, she manages to keep her extraordinary ability secret. Or does she…? THE 1,000-YEAR-OLD BOY Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy – except he’s 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England. Obviously no one believes him. So, when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live… which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.

Time Traveling With a Hamster

Author: Ross Welford Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: October 2016

Back to the Future meets The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in this original, poignant, race-against-time story about a boy who travels back to 1984 to save his father’s life. My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty-nine and again four years later, when he was twelve. On his twelfth birthday, Al Chaudhury receives a letter from his dead father. It directs him to the bunker of their old house, where Al finds a time machine (an ancient computer and a tin bucket). The letter also outlines a mission: travel back to 1984 and prevent the go-kart accident that will eventually take his father’s life. But as Al soon discovers, whizzing back thirty years requires not only imagination and courage, but also lying to your mom, stealing a moped, and setting your school on fire—oh, and keeping your pet hamster safe. With a literary edge and tons of commerical appeal, this incredible debut has it all: heart, humor, vividly imagined characters, and a pitch-perfect voice. From the Hardcover edition.
