Bear Grylls Adventures: Volume 2 by Bear Grylls
Jungle Challenge & Sea Challenge
More thrilling adventures in the brand-new collectible series for children, from survival expert and Chief Scout Bear Grylls.
Each audiobook in this new series from Bear Grylls follows a different child on the outdoor activity camp. Once they are given the magical compass, they meet the inspirational adventurer in an amazing place and learn new skills and facts they can take back with them to their real life. This volume features two exciting adventures:
Jungle Challenge: Omar is fiercely competitive and very impatient about anything that holds him back, especially other people. Activity camp is brilliant because he's the best at all the challenges, it's just so annoying that not all his teammates are as quick or brave or strong as he is.
But when the magic compass transports him to a thick jungle that is impossible to get through quickly – with the help of adventurer Bear Grylls, he has to learn to move with the rhythm of the environment around him. Can his time in the rainforest change his mind about what makes someone successful?
Sea Challenge: Chloe is enjoying activity camp and all the outdoor fun – what's not to like? But she can't understand why everyone goes on and on about 'leaving things the way you found them'. After all, what's the big deal about leaving a bit of litter around in the middle of the woods?
But when she's given a mysterious compass she's transported to a tropical island beach and has to survive the extreme conditions with the help of survival expert Bear Grylls. It's not like a typical trip to the seaside!
Will Bear persuade her to change her ways when she sees how much non-degradable litter still washes up, and the damage it does to wildlife?
Make It Happen: Manifest the Life of Your Dreams by Jordanna Levin
Everyone can manifest. We're all doing it – every second of every day – without even realising it.
For years, journalist and podcaster Jordanna Levin thought that she was psychic. She would worry about things and they would come true. But she wouldn't just worry; she would feel them, take subconscious action towards them and believe with every cell of her being that they would happen-and most of the time, they did. A broken foot, a cancelled flight, a tragic love story ... the list went on. She soon realised that she wasn't just predicting the future, she was manifesting it. Until one day she changed the game. If she could manifest mishaps and disasters, why not the things she actually wanted?
In this warm and witty audiobook, Jordanna shares her personal experiences and struggles along with her foolproof equation for manifesting whatever you desire, from your dream job to a lasting relationship. Whether you’re a matter-of-fact skeptic or a somewhat hippie yoga-lover, Make It Happen will empower you to take ownership of your life and create anything you want.
The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix
Eighteen-year-old art student Susan Arkshaw arrives in London in search of her father. But before she can question crime boss Frank Thringley, he's turned to dust by the prick of a silver hatpin in the hands of the outrageously attractive Merlin. Merlin is one of the youngest members of a secret society of booksellers with magical powers who police the mythic Old World wherever it impinges on the New World - in addition to running several bookshops, of course! Merlin also has a quest of his own: to find the Old World entity who arranged the murder of his mother. Their investigations attract attention from enemies of the Old and New Worlds. Soon they become involved in an even more urgent task to recover the grail that is the source of the left-handed booksellers' power, before it is used to destroy the booksellers and rouse the hordes of the mythic past. As the search for the grail becomes strangely intertwined with both their quests, they start to wonder... Is Susan's long-lost father a bookseller, or something altogether more mysterious?
