It's time to unpack the spaceship for another intergalactic adventure!

The members of the Space Brigade have received an intruiging letter from the Commander-in-Chief of the Planet of Shobble. He mentions 'grave danger'...

When they land on Shobble, they soon discover that the planet has a dark secret - most of the population are slaves, forced to mine for marshmallow and drill for chocolate.

But a teenage girl called Topaz is encouraging the workers to rebel, and the Commander-in-Chief wants the rebellion sqaushed.

Soon, Nicola Berry and her friends are crossing infested rivers, snowy swamplands and frozen seas. Along the way, they'll learn new skills, meet unexpected creatures - and change Shobble's history forever.

Since then she's written seven novels for adults set in the real world, and three books for children set in outer space. Some of her books have been number one best sellers and one has even been made into a TV series.

Nicola Berry and The Shocking Trouble on the Planet of Shobble, the second book in her children's series, was first published in 2009.

Liane Moriarty is the Australian author of eight internationally bestselling novels, Three Wishes, The Last Anniversary, What Alice Forgot, The Hypnotist's Love Story and the number one New York Times bestsellers The Husband's Secret, Big Little Lies and Truly Madly Guilty and most recently Nine Perfect Strangers. Her books have sold over fourteen million copies worldwide, including two million in Australia and New Zealand.

Screen rights have been sold to all of Liane Moriarty's novels. A TV series is in development for Three Wishes, Nicole Kidman has bought the rights to The Last Anniversary, film rights to What Alice Forgot have been pre-empted by Sony TriStar with Jennifer Aniston starring as Alice and Heather Graham will star in an adaptation of The Hypnotist's Love Story.

The Husband's Secret was a number one UK bestseller, an Amazon Best Book of 2013 and has been translated into over forty languages. CBS Films has acquired the film rights with Blake Lively attached as lead actor and executive producer.

With Big Little Lies, Liane became the first Australian author to have a novel debut at number one on the New York Times bestseller list and it has been adapted for television by Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon who also star in the series, scripted by David E Kelley. The first season of the HBO series of Big Little Lies was nominated for sixteen, and won five Emmy Awards, including 'Outstanding Limited Series' and 'Outstanding Lead Actress' for Nicole Kidman's role as Celeste.
