Win the Crater Lake books and get ready for twists and turns

These fun and scary reads could be yours when you enter our book competition – and you won't want to put them down.

There are three rules for surviving Crater Lake: don’t go anywhere with an adult; don’t follow any instructions you’re given; and don’t ever fall asleep…

Crater Lake and Crater and Crater Lake: Evolution by Jennifer Killick (Firefly Press) are the kind of edge-of-your-seat books that kids love to devour. 

Perfect for 9 to 11 year olds, the schoolchildren in the two books stumble across all kinds of weird and wonderful things, from mysterious meteors to body-snatching aliens. They're a great balance of light and dark, with some genuinely heart-stopping moments of sci-fi horror.
