Eight years ago Geniver Loxley lost her baby daughter Beth.

Ever since she has been struggling to make sense of what happened and move on with her life. While her husband Art builds his business reputation and their fortune, Gen can’t forget Beth.

Then a stranger turns up at her door telling Gen the very thing she’s been longing to hear – Beth is still alive.

It’s insane. Unthinkable. But why would someone make up such a story? Ignoring the warnings of her husband and friends, Gen begins to hope – hope that quickly turns into fear and paranoia.

With questions swirling around her head, Gen is determined to uncover the truth. But who can she trust? Why is Art so reluctant to get involved? To save his wife from further hurt? Or something much more sinister? Is Beth even really out there? And, if so, who is responsible for taking her?

What is the truth about Beth Loxley?

Bernard the Robot loses his bottom on the park swing, and sets off to find it.

Every time he gets close, it disappears again! Bird was using it as a nest, but it was too heavy; Bear used it in his drum kit, but it was too tinny; the Squirrels built sandcastles with it…and now it looks as if they’re sailing away in it.

Will Bernard EVER get his bottom back? This fabulous book will have kids – big and small – laughing every time.
