The Extraordinary Adventures of Alice Tonks was hidden by book fairies today – including the author herself.

“Alice Tonks was having the worst day ever.”

Strap in for an adventure! The Book Fairies have been celebrating Emily Kenny’s new book The Extraordinary Adventures of Alice Tonks!

“It’s not your chips I’m after, Alice Tonks” the seagull said sternly. “We’ve got a job for you.”

About the book:

Sometimes all it takes is a little magic to find your voice…

Alice Tonks is eager to make friends at boarding school, but she’s always found it hard to fit in. Then she discovers she is a switcher and can talk to animals. After a rather strange encounter with a seagull, Alice Tonks is left with a lot of questions.

Why does the bird need her help? And WHY can she talk to seagulls?

As she starts to explore her newfound abilities, to her horror she learns that creatures are going missing. Only Alice holds the key to solving the mystery, but she’ll need to harness her full powers first. And to do that she’ll need a bit of help from her new friends – animal and human alike.

With new friends behind her, can Alice harness her magic powers and become the hero she never imagined?
