The Cloud Road will also be available in audiobook format in July this year from Bolinda - see Bolinda Publishing's The Cloud Road page for more info.
In The Cloud Road, Bily, Zluty, Redwing and the monster cross a barren desert and journey over high stony mountains full of strangeness and danger, in search of a distant fertile vale where they can to make a new home. The way is hardand long but their greatest peril lies in a secret the monster is harbouring, which has the potential to destroy them all.
If you've never heard of Isobelle's Kingdom of the Lost series before - introduce yourself to the series with The Red Wind first - it's available in book (Penguin), eBook (Booki.sh) and audiobook (Bolinda Publishing) formats, and was winner of the 2011 CBC Book of the Year for Younger Readers.
You can find out more information about The Cloud Road on Penguin's website here, or just pop down to your local book shop and have a look for it.
Penguin are releasing the paperback edition of The Sending on April 24th, so if you didn't manage to get yourself a copy in its large format - and are having trouble tracking down a copy right now - the wait will be over in 10 days.
This paperback format will be 768 pages long (the large-format is 755 pages), and will retail for $22.99 according to Penguin's website.
If you can't wait the 10 days to get it, remember that The Sending is also available as an eBook from both Penguin directly, and via Booki.sh.
If you're on facebook then you've probably already seen it, but in case you're not; Isobelle was interviewed by Country Style magazine while she was back in Australia during March, and the interview has now been published in their April 2013 edition.
The interview contains a two-page feature on our favourite author, and includes photographs from her childhood.
There are some images floating around facebook that preview more of the feature, but to get the full story in all its glory, go out and buy a copy of Country Style April 2013's magazine.
Click the below image to read the first page of the interview (it will open in a new window at its full size).
