Heart of Magic

By Penny Matthews

A magical story of friendship and fate in the exciting new Lightning Strikes series.

Shy Stacey Bunn and outgoing Twyla Popovic are exact opposites but also the best of friends. On the day of Twyla’s birthday, Stacey and Twyla are set go to the Royal Show. But their horoscopes tell them that their best friend is going to betray them! The events of the day prove the prediction to be spot on but with the help of a mysterious fortune teller, the girls manage to put things right.

  • Short, fast-paced novels, laced with a good dose of humour and which make few demands on the reader.
  • Aiming at 8-14 year old age group – especially those who haven’t yet been “struck” by the reading bug. Similar readership to Penguin’s “Aussie Chomp” series, but with a more graphic and funky approach, to try to appeal to a wider audience.
  • Design includes funky chapter heads, wide leading, generous type and plenty of white space.
