Two for the price of one fun - these dynamic duos are all favourites in the Alligator's Mouth
Elys Dolan£6.99 £6.50
Dave is rubbish at being a dragon, so he decides to give knighthood a go. He is ably assisted by his faithful steed Albrecht, a German goat with a mysterious past and a remarkably glossy coat. Together they are unstoppable..
Nick Sharratt£6.99 £6.50
After a dragon-related incident, the King and his Cat must leave their castle and learn to be normal. The king is childlike and unworldly, so the cat acts as PA and does all the organising. He can't speak though. Because that would be silly.
Polly Faber and Clara Vulliamy£6.99 £6.50
Mango is a super-capable, clever little girl. When she rescues Bambang (a Tapir, NOT a pig) they embark on a series of adventures. A series full of charm, humour and kindness
Pip Bird and David O'Connell£5.99 £5.57
Mira is off to Unicorn School, where she will be paired with a glittery, sparkly, well-behaved unicorn to be her bestie for life. Or will she? Cue Dave, who is very naughty, greedy, and fond of doughnuts and farting. Entertaining shenanigans ensue.
Alex T. Smith£6.99 £6.50
Mr Penguin is a detective and an adventurer (you can tell by the arrow through his hat). His buddy Colin (a spider) is a taciturn but extremely competent martial arts expert. In a later book, he sings. Do not miss.
Swapna Haddow and Sheena Dempsey£6.99 £6.50
Dave and his sidekick Skipper are two pigeons in search of a place where they can safely eat biscuits and avoid Mean Cats. Dave is conceited and arrogant, but loveable. Skipper is long-suffering and writes everything down, no matter how silly. Will they ever find a home?
Gavin Aung Than£6.99 £6.50
Junior Justice has had enough of being a sidekick and so have his buddies Flygirl, Dynomite, and, er, Goo. Together they set out to defeat the evil Dr Enok, who is almost certainly trying to take over the world. These megavillains never get bored of that, do they? This is a whole book about sidekicks and we love it..
