There are two worlds, or realms if you will. There is the Realm of Reality, or the Human World, and there is the Realm of Imagination, populated by figments of our imagination. Bizarre animals, Imaginary Friends, Heroes and most unfortunately, the vile and loathsome Monsters we conjure up in our minds when we're most frightened. Thomas Llewellyn doesn't know anything about this other world; neither does his brat of a little brother, Isaac nor their young cousin, Emily. They soon come to learn about the existence of this strange world when they are suddenly and violently pulled from their own by a turbulent vortex. Faced with having to prove just what they are, they must try to find a way home while all the while, someone plots to keep the human children where they are so that they can be used for a terrible purpose.

Simon Adepetun will be at the Weaverham Library, Weaverham Northwich, on Monday 21st August at 11am.

Simon Adepetun, author of 'The Bee Hive', will be giving a reading from his book and be available to answer any questions you may have.

Eleven-year-old Daniel Jeremiah Chambers has parents, Philip and Susan, who love work and shopping and who just don't listen. Daniel is an only child ... no, he's lying ... he has a sister, Alice, who has a dolly fixation; Dan is sure she is an alien.


So, Dan has a few problems, none insurmountable, until his friend, Benji, introduces him to the find of the century - a derelict bee hive which could become a den. Of course, such a simple thing is never so simple and when Dan finds a map, well, all kinds of things go horribly wrong. For example - Alice noses her nosey way in and two strange men suddenly turn up wanting what's theirs - and then there's the bank too.


'The Beehive' by Simon Adepetun is a tight little sharp-witted bumble through a period in Dan's young life.

Join J.D. Welch, author of 'The Einstein Code' and 'The Darwin Code', at Wilmslow Library for an interesting code cracking session. The session will run from 11am to 12pm. You will get the chance to ask J.D. Welch all your code cracking questions and maybe even bag yourself a signed copy of one of her books. 

'The Einstein Code': Ben's mother has been kidnapped and the adults don't believe it. They think she's just missing and her employers and the police don't really want to know. The meeting she attended, after all, never took place. But the message she sent Ben tells a different story. To find his mum Ben must follow a perilous trail and solve a series of difficult clues, whilst evading being captured by the kidnappers. With help from his alarmingly clever cousins, Jess and Freddie, as well as some hindrance from his uncle, he investigates her mysterious disappearance. Tormented by conflicting leads and a growing threat, Ben's search becomes increasingly desperate.

Can he solve the puzzles and save her, before anything terrible happens to her - or him?

'The Darwin Code': In her book 'The Darwin Code' J.D. Welch uses her love of science and puzzles to help her characters try to solve two mysteries whilst also delivering an interesting and understandable insight into human genetics. Set against a backdrop of the streets and colleges of Oxford, a story of intrigue and suspense unfolds. When young Ben Baxter and his mother Sue escape from a horrific ordeal, their lives remain in danger as they race to prevent a deadly poison being launched. For Ben, this also brings the opportunity to discover the answer to a very important question; who is his father?
