Sally Green’s novel, Half Bad has made the Guinness world record as the most translated book and the most translated children’s book by a debut author before publication. The second book in the series, Half Wild is due for release in March 2015 and I CAN’T WAIT. I absolutely loved Half Bad.
For us fans of Half Bad, there are two special bits of news. Firstly, there has been a new e-short released. It is set in the months prior to Half Bad. It’s called Half Lies: A Half Bad story.
Secondly, Sally and Penguin have released the first chapter of Half Wild which is below. Enjoy!
