Ford Street has sadly farewelled our gatehouse guardians Jack and Molly in the past year.
It’s now up to Benji to stand guard. At eleven weeks old he’s proving himself very capable. Pull hard enough on this string and that cat will surely topple!
(Don’t worry, we cut the string before the inevitable could happen.)
We have a great line up of books scheduled for October release. Just a reminder that while some Ford Street titles are showing at TL Distribution as “unavailable” or “on order”, this is due to stock being processed. It can take some time. Be assured that every Ford Street book is still in print and available.
Ready, Steady, Hatch!, by Ben Long and David Cornish, will be our first release of 2017.
Ten chicks are excited to discover the world outside their eggshells, but the smallest is soon separated from the rest. Where can she be?

Our illustrious publisher, Paul Collins, is still writing.
Pearson has just published his three new plays in their Bug Club Fluent Fiction Play series.
