    The Green Ship by Quentin Blake, £7.99

    Two children find the Green Ship when they climb over the wall into what is more like a forest than a garden. The ship has bushes for bows and stern and its funnels are trees; a small garden shed on an ancient stump is the wheel house and in command of the ship is the owner of the garden, old Mrs Tredegar. Throughout the summer she and the Bosun and the two children sail the Seven Seas visiting exotic faraway places and having wonderful adventures.

Now they have to find the money and the Captain suggests a fishing trip to the Great Cod Banks in the Forgotten Sea. 

     

    The Shrimp by Emily Smith, £5.99

Ben would love to win it, but others have their eyes on the prize too...
