Summary

How hard can it be to find the perfect partner for your dad? 
 
Esmie misses her mum, even though she was only a tiny baby when she died. She has a photo by her bed, and sometimes – when she needs advice or just fancies a chat – she asks her mum for help. Sometimes she even hears her reply. 
 
But Esmie thinks her dad is lonely. And her big brother Matthew would definitely benefit from a female influence. So Esmie decides to take action: she's going to find her dad a girlfriend. Beautiful, clever, charming, kind to children and animals ... How hard can it be to find the perfect partner for your dad? 
 
In the book which won her the Red House Children's Book Award, Gwyneth Rees tells a story of healing and love with characteristic charm and humour. The Mum Hunt comes to Bloomsbury for a refreshed cover look and renewed marketing and publicity to bring new readers to this quirky, lovely modern classic.

    Luke Garibaldi is a member of the Outlaws' dugout of bad boys and the league's premier catcher. On the diamond, he plays to win, but when it comes to his private life, what the league doesn't know won't hurt, right?

After all, with his body and his skills, he can have any woman he wants. Except Lara.

    But when an accident brings their lives together, and their attraction turns into something more, it becomes clear that the road to happily ever after is never easy.  Can they find their way back to each other and win the game of love?

    NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES 
    I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to read this book because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put this book down instantaneously, because of all the books describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumber mill, and they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log. The pages of this book, I'm sorry to inform you, contain such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons. I have promised to write down the entire history of these three poor children, but you haven't, so if you prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection. 
    With all due respect,  
    Lemony Snicket
