The Playdate Adventures Series (Rock the Boat, 2020) is a fun, contemporary series for 5-8 year olds from debut children's author Emma Beswetherick - because every child loves a playdate and every child has the magic of make-believe!
Each book in the series features Katy, Cassie and Zia (all new to Year 3 at school), and Katy’s cat, Thunder. In The Wishing Star (April 2020), at their first playdate the girls plan their first adventure, and the power of their imagination makes their pretend adventure come to life.
With themes of empowering girls to follow their own adventures and care for the environment, The Playdate Adventure Club perfectly chimes with the zeitgeist.
Emma lives in South West London with her husband and two children. She devised the series after having difficulty finding books for her daughter that were as exciting and adventurous as those available to her son. Emma is a publisher at Little Brown where she heads a boutique list.
