The Secrets of Sam and Sam
Sam likes being a twin. He likes having two mums. He likes cheese sandwiches and his dog and being a secret comic-drawing superhero. He does not like hummus – or heights.
His sister Sammie likes being a twin too. She doesn’t like new girl Emily’s best-friend stealing ways – or secrets. Why is Mum K clearing out the attic? And why can’t anyone else see that she’s obviously, definitely, the Best Twin?
When the school residential trip rolls around, featuring the DEATH SLIDE OF DOOM, there’s no alternative.
Time for the Sams to come up with a secret plan of their own…
Meet the very different twins and their very different problems in this hilarious, heartwarming story of modern family life – a standalone spin-off from the Pea’s Book series.

The Secrets of Billie Bright
Confident, sparky 11-year-old Billie loves being part of a busy, noisy, messy family: chirpy cafe-owner Dad and her three big brothers – grown-up Gabriel who’s getting married, disaster-prone Raffy, and sweet sporty Michael. She doesn’t mind being the only girl; just being the littlest. But she’s catching up, starting secondary school, leaving the little girl behind.
When Miss Eagle tells her class to write a Hero Project about someone who inspires you, Billie knows exactly who to choose: her lovely mum, who died when she was little. She can’t wait to pull out her Memory Box, and hear all the old family stories. But no one seems to want to help. When Raffy angrily tells her to choose someone else, she knows something’s up.
Mum left behind a secret. And when Billie unlocks it, nothing will ever be the same…
