Dannika Patterson Megan Forward Ford St ISBN 9781925804003 Date of publication September 2018 Age 4 – 7 RRP $24.95 hardcover ($16.95 paperback February 2019) Reviewer Megan Stuart The author says that this is a book “for children with bare feet and wild imaginations” but it’s magic goes much further.

Michael Panckridge Ford St ISBN 9781925272499 RRP $14.95 Age 10+ Date of publication October 2016 Reviewer Megan Stuart Against the spin is the second book in the legend series.
