Magnus Fun - Moonlight Mission Magnus Fun – Moonlight Mission
Magnus Fin and the Moonlight Mission takes place in late autumn, unlike the first book which is set at midsummer.

Magnus Fun - Selkie Secret Magnus Fun – Selkie Secret
Magnus Fin and the Selkie Secret takes us to the end of Magnus Fin’s year of being eleven. It is early summer – and while beachcombing Fin finds something buried under the sand. It glows. It hurts him. It sets him off on another adventure. This ‘thing’ in the sand, he believes, is some kind of treasure.
