The Poison Diaries
Editor Duchess of Northumberland  | Publisher Pavilion Books | Price £15 | Web |

A beautifully illustrated book that tells the story of a young boy called Weed, who longs to be free from his wicked master.
Part botanical workbook and part diary, this is an unconventional book with a scary ending that’s certainly not for kids. But with its lavish attention to detail and a twisted sense of humour, it’s a great read.
