The luck uglies
By Paul Durham

ISBN 9780007526901

Eleven year old Rye O’Chanter has seen much in her short life. She has grown up in Village Drowning’s treacherous streets and forgotten cemeteries. But on the night of the Black Moon Rye becomes convinced that the terrible Bog Noblins have returned from the forest Beyond the Shale. Bog Noblins are supposed to be extinct so how can Rye convince people that they are wrong and that danger is everywhere. Who will protect them from the creatures.
And what of the stranger named Harmless who encourages Rye to question everything she knows. Rye is confronted with secrets she must unravel but danger lurks and it just may take a villain to save the village from monsters.
This is book one in a new trilogy which I have just bought for school.
I do love the trailer with its mixed media. Great appeal for middle grade readers who will be intrigued by the trailer. I may just have to fight the students to read it first!
