‘One minute Jasmin was standing in her bath, drying her hair with the hair dryer, the next she was in a noisy, crowded room wearing her dressing gown and carrying a suitcase with a faulty lock. It didn’t seem particularly strange, because her life was like that. She could be walking down the street, or across the school playground or running in the gym and the next thing she knew she’d be sitting up in a bed at home, a sick room or, in extreme cases, a hospital. Jasmin was accident prone – or “unfortunate’’, as her parents described her. They marvelled at times that she’d actually reached the ripe old age of 14.’Little Angels is a light-hearted look at teenagers “on the other side”. Jasmin becomes member of Angel Troop and is one of the clumsiest Guardian Angels to grace the troop, but she manages, with a bit of luck, to eventually to do her job and rescue her soul mate from some sticky situations.

Kellie had a dragon living in the paddock at the back of her house, she also had trolls (but didn’t know about them yet). The dragon didn’t breathe fire, or roar and had never spoke, nor did it roar a scary roar. That’s because it was made of wood. A large tree branch dried out so much, it looked a lot like a dragon with a long forked tail and four wiggly limbs protruding a thick body- Kellie called it David the Snake Dragon. In this book, Kellie and Gregory discover their favourite toys have been stolen and David comes to life. Taking the children to the Island of Lost Dolls, a place dolls used to live happily ever after until a wicked doll declares herself queen and makes all dolls her slave. Kellie, Gregory and David, along with the help of the mysterious Regina, must fight to save not only their own toys, but all others too.

When the world is drained of all colours, David the Snake Dragon comes alive once more and takes Kellie and Gregory on a journey to the Land above the Clouds, where the evil gnome, known as The Painter, has stolen the rainbow and broken it into separate colours so they can’t mix and create real colours. The trio battle their way through the different colour zones in a quest to find true colours so they can repair the damage, but there are many pitfalls and dangers between them and the end of the rainbow. This is the second book that features David, Kellie, and Gregory. The first was The Island of Lost Dolls.
