If you’re new to the world of Dead End The Broken Halo follows on from where DeadEndia: The Watcher’s Test finished off, but it can also be read as a stand alone graphic novel if you fancy jumping straight in.

But as a short summary for any newcomers: war is brewing across the thirteen planes. And as always, haunted house attraction and portal to hell Dead End is right at the centre of it.

Recently reopened as a hotel, Dead End’s resident tour guide turned hotel manager Norma is determined to leave the ghosts of the past where they belong. But with her friendship with Barney up in the air, and angels and demons using the hotel as their literal wrestling ring, Norma soon finds that unwanted ghosts can appear at any moment, especially when they’re your own.

Joe Todd-Stanton Reading A Mouse Called Julian

It’s #TimeToRead week, the week where we all celebrate story time and reading together!

If you’re looking for a new picture book to try out, here’s Joe Todd-Stanton reading from A Mouse Called Julian, which he wrote and illustrated.

A Mouse Called Julian is the tale of a mouse who is perfectly happy avoiding other animals. But after a day when he has an unexpected dinner guest, Julian begins to realise maybe having a visitor or two here and there isn’t quite so bad after all…

A big thanks to all the lovely folks at CLPE who we partnered with for this video!

Teachers, look out for more videos and teaching resources for A Mouse Called Julian as part of the CLPE Power of Pictures Programme. You can book to attend a two-day course with Joe & CLPE here!

A Mouse Called Julian is available here in the UK, and here in the US.

Joe Todd-Stanton is an illustrator based in London, England, and Kai and the Monkey King is his latest book for Flying Eye.
