Helen Moss talking at Heffer's Bookshop in Cambridge
This is where you'll find out about author talks, book signings, interviews and workshops. Competitions and giveaways will be posted here too, as well as any other Adventure Island related news.






June, 2019

Look out for the first two books in my new series, Time Dogs. Balto and the Race Against Time and Seaman and the Great Northern Adventure.

Published by Henry Holt and Co, these will be coming out in hardback in America in the first instance - you can order them on-line (or read them on kindle!) 

Find out more on the Macmillan Kids website.


"When a pack of senior dogs find themselves transported back in time—and turned into puppies!—they must make their way back home, helping real-life historical dogs along the way.
In this first adventure, meet Baxter, Trevor, Newton, Titch, and Maia—the time dogs!—as they find themselves transported through time and space to 1925 Alaska. There, deep in the wilderness, the puppies must help Balto in his famous sled race to deliver medicine during a diphtheria outbreak.
Adorable illustrations and an action-packed story make this the perfect read for fans of Paw Patrol!"
