Tales of Hyspero by Paul Magrs is a new novel series from Simon & Schuster's Children's Books. Recognize the name? That's because Hyspero is the planet from the BBC Doctor Who novel "The Scarlet Empress" that Magrs wrote, and now he's setting this new series on that magical planet. "Hyspero is a huge world," says Magrs. "Really huge. In Hyspero, there's a fabulous mix of the weird and the utterly everyday. It's funny and has lots of creatures in it. Evil sloths! Acrobatic super-intelligent foxes! Widescreen lizards! It's a book about REAL kids discovering a magical land. Not the made-up kind of well-behaved kids that no reader ever believes in." The first book is entitled A World of Her Own and is due out in September.
