Titles By Matt Haig
Tom Hazard esconde un secreto: puede que parezca un hombre de unos cuarenta años pero, debido a una rara enfermedad, lleva vivo desde hace varios siglos.
De hecho, tiene aproximadamente cuatrocientos años y, entre otras muchas cosas, ha actuado con Shakespeare, ha explorado el mar con el capitán Cook y ha compartido cócteles con Scott Fitzgerald.
Tom debe cambiar a menudo de país y de identidad para preservar su secreto. De este modo, ha sido testigo y protagonista de grandes momentos históricos. Ahora sólo desea sentirse un hombre más. Así,
se instala en Londres tratando de llevar una vida corriente y empieza a trabajar en un instituto como profesor de Historia, donde enseña a los niños sobre guerras y sucesos de los que ha sido testigo de primera mano.
Una historia de amor eterno sobre un hombre perdido en el tiempo, la mujer que podría salvarlo y las vidas necesarias para aprender a ser feliz.
Amelia Wishart was the first child ever to receive a Christmas present. It was her Christmas spirit that gave Santa the extra boost of magic he needed to make his first trip around the world. But now Amelia is in trouble.
When her mother falls ill, she is sent to the workhouse to toil under cruel Mr. Creeper. For a whole year, Amelia scrubs the floors and eats watery gruel, without a whiff of kindness to keep her going. It’s not long before her hope begins to drain away.
Meanwhile, up at the North Pole, magic levels dip dangerously low as Christmas approaches, and Santa knows that something is gravely wrong. With the help of his trusty reindeer, a curious cat, and Charles Dickens, he sets out to find Amelia, the only girl who might be able to save Christmas. But first Amelia must learn to believe again. . . .

When Evie goes on a trip to the Amazon rainforest, her powers are put to the test. She makes friends with pink river dolphins, must save an injured sloth, and discovers the secret life of a jaguar.

A brilliant new story from bestselling author Matt Haig, featuring Evie from Evie and the Animals and with illustrations by the award-winning Emily Gravett.
It isn't always easy, growing up as a human in Elfhelm, even if your adoptive parents are the newly married Father Christmas and Mary Christmas.
For one thing, Elf School can be annoying when you have to sing Christmas songs everyday - even in July - and when you fail all your toy-making tests. Also it can get very, very cold.
But when the jealous Easter Bunny and his rabbit army launch an attack to stop Christmas, it's up to Amelia, her new family and the elves to keep Christmas alive. Before it's too late . . .
Eleven-year-old Evie has a talent: a supertalent. She can HEAR what animals are thinking.
She promises to keep it top secret, but then an evil pet-thief strikes.
Every animal in town is in danger and only by DARING TO BE HERSELF can Evie save her furry and feathered friends.
Samuel and Martha's new life with their Aunt Eda in Norway is filled with rules, but most important is rule number nine: NEVER 'UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES' GO INTO THE FOREST. Sure their Uncle Henrik disappeared in the forest ten years ago, but it can't be the forest's fault-can it? Samuel is skeptical until he finds an unusual book, The Creatures of Shadow Forest, which describes the fantastic and sinister creatures supposedly living there. Could Aunt Eda be right? Samuel discovers the truth about the forest's dangerous secrets when Martha becomes lost in the forest, and it's up to him to save her.
This engaging adventure showcases Matt Haig's wry sense of humor, drawing readers deeper into the imaginative world introduced in Samuel Blink and the Forbidden Forest.
When Nikolas left the only home he had ever known, it was a mouse named Miika who kept him company, and it was Miika who accompanied him on his journey to the Far North, in search of his father. But before the events of A Boy Called Christmas, this little mouse was the hero of his own story.
A Mouse Called Miika is an epic adventure story on a miniature scale. It's a tale of mice and men (and more mice). It is about one independent mouse who gets fed up with the other mice, and sets out on a quest of his own to prove that cheese exists, and learns to appreciate other creatures. It is also a tale of great love (of cheese) and great danger. And learning the lesson that, with cheese, as with life, what matters most is not how strongly you smell, but how strong you are on the inside.
Funny, cheeky, wise, and packed full of Matt Haig's signature warmth. This is set to become a year-round children's favorite.
This is not a book about politics. It is a book about what makes us British, and what makes us European.
