Summary

When Jack and his family arrive on the remote, blustery Scottish island of Morna, the whole summer holiday seems doomed... until they find the den. The three children who claim it are the only other children their age on the island – and soon Jack, Tressa and Milo are initiated into their secret society, the Binding, which charismatic Duncan presides over with elaborate rules, ceremonies and punishments. 
  
Jack wants to belong. He doesn't want trouble. But as the summer goes on, he begins to understand more about the Binding. Jack's going to have to stand up to Duncan - whatever it costs him. 
  
A tense, compulsive exploration of the effects of secrets, authority, boredom, and fear.

    It's finally time for the school trip! And we're off to the SPOOKIEST castle I have EVER seen!
    
    Bea Black is in her second term at witch school and she can't wait for the Year Seven residential trip to the haunted Cadabra Castle. The students are excited to fly around the famous GO pitch, explore the ancient turrets and have a magical time … if they can just stop arguing! Except Ms Sparks has other plans – this isn't a holiday, it's a team-building exercise for a class who desperately need to learn to work together.
    
    But with rumours of a ghost terrorizing the castle, Bea has a lot more to contend with than scavenger hunts and hikes! Not least being paired up with Blair Smith-Smythe, her ULTIMATE frenemy! Will the class learn anything from their time at Cadabra? And more importantly, will Bea and Blair manage to avoid hexing each other for long enough to solve the spooky mystery?

    First there is the omen: A relentless rain stops suddenly at 3:00 am and Chester shows Harold and Howie a cat carrier, open and waiting, by the front door. Chester, who has been reading avidly about the paranormal, predicts that they will soon be traveling someplace, and chances are they are not going to like it.Indeed they are not, as the very next day, with the sun shining bright and clear, the Monroes finally leave for their vacation, dropping Chester, Harold, and Howie off at the scene of some previous harrowing experiences -- Chateau Bow-Wow, the boarding kennel that Chester so aptly had dubbed "Howliday Inn."And this visit promises to be no less harrowing than the last one. The three are greeted by a whole new group of temporary residents. There's Hamlet, the Great Dane, whose sadness grows deeper with his certainty that his beloved master Archie will never return to pick him up. And Bob and Linda, a pair of yuppie puppies from fashionable Upper Centerville who have been left at Chateau Bow-Wow with a more than adequate supply of gourmet treats, also seem to have been left with a more than adequate supply of worries. Then there are Felony and Miss Demeanor, sinister sisters in crime who pride themselves as cat burglars, and The Weasel who tries almost too hard to make a good impression.Chester is certain that nothing bodes well and he is right. Unexplained voices, buried bones, a collar with the name Rosebud on it, and a secret code all make for a paranormal experience that none of the guests at Chateau Bow-Wow will ever forget.

    Join Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the angels as they celebrate the birth of Jesus. This fabulous book teaches young readers about Jesus' birth and the real meaning of Christmas. “Happy Birthday, Jesus! We celebrate Your birth in the town of Bethlehem when You came down to earth. Your mother, Mary, held you. A manger was Your bed. The cows and sheep were quiet as she gently kissed Your head. Your father, Joseph, marveled. He knew You were the One. For God had sent a Savior—His one and only Son.  The shepherds had been watching their flocks that quiet night. When an angel appeared, they were terrified with fright. ‘Do not be afraid. For I bring to you good news: Today a Savior has been born!' And then the shepherds knew. Happy Birthday, Jesus! We give You all the praise.  We celebrate Your birthday on this glorious Christmas day.”  Other titles in this series include: The Best Thing About Christmas, The Gift, and The Friendly Beasts.
