              A Discount Haircut for Reading Aloud

              In the news in the US this week is a Barbershop giving their child customers a discount haircut if they read aloud while having their hair cut. The barbershop found out about it happening in other places in the US before they started the scheme themselves. This sounds like a great idea, I wonder if we can convince barbers and hairdressers in NZ to do this?

                  Skulduggery Pleasant - New Series in 2017

                  Image from HERE
                  Well, it turns out that Derek Landy wasn't finished with Skulduggery Pleasant after all. He is currently writing a new series, as yet un-named, which features both Skulduggery and Valkyrie but also a new hero named Omen Darkly. 
                  Next year marks the 10th Anniversary of the release of the first Skulduggery Pleasant book and apparently the whole of the first series will be re-released with new covers in early 2017. The new series will be released later in the year. As Derek apptly put it on his blog....

                  "It's gonna be fun. Well, it's gonna be fun for US. 
                  For you it's going to be torture."


                  You can find out more and keep up-to-date with developments on Derek Landy's blog HERE or on the Skulduggery Pleasant website HERE
