"Fresh and engaging - and full of surprises - this is a story to inspire." Books for Keeps

About THE WORLD'S BELLYBUTTON Tanya writes:
"I've always loved the Greek myths and one morning I was thinking about the gods. Being immortal they can't have just died out when people stopped believing in them. I started wondering what had happened to them and where they are now. THE WORLD'S BELLYBUTTON - with brilliantly funny illustrations by the wonderful Ross Collins - is the result."

The sequel to THE WORLD'S BELLYBUTTON is THE KRAKEN SNORES.


A sea monster's snoring threatens to sink Britain. Can William and Zeus wake the kraken before the land disappears below the waves?

About THE KRAKEN SNORES Tanya writes:
"I really enjoyed writing about William and Zeus and wanted them to have another adventure. I've loved The Odyssey since I was a child so I started to think about all the gods and monsters that Odysseus met on his travels. Were they still around? And if they were, what might happen if William encountered any of them?"
