Abi Elphinstone's next Unmapped Chronicles book, Jungledrop, has been moved to 1st October.
Jungledrop follows on from the first in the series, Rumblestar, and this time, we are following eleven-year-old twins, Fix and Fibber, who have been rivals as long as they can remember. Only one of them will inherit the family fortune and so a race is afoot to save the dwindling Petty-Squabble empire and win the love of their parents.
But when the twins are whisked off to Jungledrop, a magical Unmapped Kingdom in charge of conjuring our world’s weather, things get wildly out of hand. An evil harpy called Morg is on the loose. And if she finds the long-lost Forever Fern before the twins, both Jungledrop and our world will crumble.
Suddenly, Fox and Fibber find themselves on an incredible adventure in a glow-in-the-dark rainforest full of golden panthers, gobblequick trees and enchanted temples. But, with the fate of two worlds in their hands, will the twins be able to work together for once to defeat Morg and her dark magic?
Can't wait until October? Well, luckily, Abi has got the first three chapters ready to read on her website! Click here to see more.

Congratulations to Amy McLellan who last week, saw the paperback publication of her debut novel, Remember Me.
Last night my sister was murdered. The police think I killed her.
I was there. I watched the knife go in. I saw the man who did it.
He's someone I know. But he won't be caught.
Because he knows I have prosopagnosia - I can't recognise faces.
But if I don't find him, I'll be found guilty of murder.
