Did you guys know that author Derek Landy is coming to Perth? We posted about it a while back over on facebook and it is on our events page but we never ended up doing a post on it.
So if you haven't heard of Mr Landy, he's the creator of the wise-cracking supernatural detective Skulduggery Pleasant, and is visiting Australia to promote his latest book in the series, Kingdom of the Wicked!
For those of you who haven't even heard of the series, Skulduggery Pleasant is a skeleton detective with a faithful sidekick by the name of Valkyrie Cain. They are urban fantasy detective stories and the pages are filled with adventure and intrigue, elements of magic and ghastly creatures.
While the books are written for children aged 9+, I find them absolute page turners and the sarcasm and witty banter is highly amusing. This is one of my favourite children's series with a fantastic cast of characters that I highly recommend.
You will find the event details below and also on our Events page. Make sure you RSVP to the right people if you want to go.
Also, stay tuned for another author announcement later in the week!
