Anyone But Ivy Pocket
Who can you rely on to deliver a priceless diamond to an undeserving heiress? ANYONE BUT IVY POCKET! Fans of Lemony Snicket – your new hero awaits

Ivy Pocket is a twelve-year-old maid with the natural instincts of a wartime Prime Minister. Or at the very least, a lighthouse keeper. For the princely sum of £500, Ivy has agreed to courier the Duchess of Trinity’s most precious possession – the Clock Diamond – from Paris to England, and to put it around the neck of the revolting Matilda Butterfield on her twelfth birthday. 

Acquiring bosom friends and instant enemies as she goes, it’s not long before Ivy finds herself at the heart of a conspiracy involving mischief, mayhem and murder.

Illustrated in humorous gothic detail by John Kelly, Anyone But Ivy Pocket is just the beginning of one girl's deadly comic journey to discover who she really is ...

Somebody Stop Ivy Pocket
A slightly dead girl with a nose for a mystery ... SOMEBODY STOP IVY POCKET The hilarious follow-up to Anyone But Ivy Pocket

Ivy is now the beloved daughter of Ezra and Mother Snagbsy, coffin makers, even if she does have to work rather like a maid. Their trade is roaring, and Ivy is as happy as a pig in clover. Especially when she escapes to the library to talk to the devastatingly sympathetic Miss Carnage. 

But then Ivy guesses that all is not as it seems with her new parents, and discovers that she can pass into the world of the Clock Diamond. There, she sees her friend Rebecca, horribly sad and desperate. 

Can Ivy save Rebecca? And what do a missing aristocrat, a forbidden love affair and a bullfrog have to do with her mission?

Illustrated in humorous gothic detail by John Kelly, Somebody Stop Ivy Pocket is the second tale in Ivy's deadly comic journey to discover who she really is ...

Bring Me the Head of Ivy Pocket
Bring Me the Head of Ivy Pocket
Ivy Pocket's final outrageous adventure will fill you with the sort of anticipation that leads to spontaneous combustion. Or at the very least a mild headache and a crying fit.

Our magnificently infuriating heroine is on the very brink of her greatest adventure: bound for London and Prospa House to save Anastasia Radcliff and young Rebecca Butterfield from fates worse than death. But there are difficulties at every turn. The devious Miss Always and her devilish Locks are in hot pursuit. Anastasia is gone, taken by her evil sister-in-law Estelle and hidden in a place no one will ever find her. And worst of all, the Clock Diamond is no longer working, blocking Ivy’s route to Prospa.

There’s a mystery to be unpicked and if anyone can do it, it’s Ivy Pocket. After all, she has all the natural instincts of a Russian chess master. Ivy Pocket’s tumultuous finale is certain to involve breathtaking adventure, bone-shattering courage and frightful danger. But what price will she have to pay?
