Scholastic to publish two new novels by Sylvia Bishop

DKW are delighted to announce that Scholastic have acquired THE SECRET OF THE NIGHT TRAIN, a thrilling middle-grade adventure for readers aged 9-12, and a second untitled middle-grade adventure from author Sylvia Bishop.

THE SECRET OF THE NIGHT TRAIN will be published on May 3rd.

When Max is sent to Istanbul to stay with her boring Great Aunt Elodie, little does she expect to be plunged into a thrilling night-time adventure across Europe. And when the Heartbreak Diamond goes missing, Max must find her feet in a whirling world of would-be diamond smugglers, thieves and undercover detectives. Will Max discover the real diamond thief before they reach their destination?

Sylvia Bishop’s first two novels, ERICA’S ELEPHANT and THE BOOKSHOP GIRL were published in the UK by Scholastic. They have received rave reviews and rights have so far been sold in a further 13 territories: Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Greece, Russia, Indonesia, Japan, The Netherlands, Ukraine, Portugal, South Africa and the USA.
