Nora Williams, Curse of the Nomed

Enter our World

Sett straightened his tie and took one final look at his reflection in the mirror. Perfect. No-one would suspect a thing. Until it was too late …

Three nervous students, Nora, Stef and Jacob, embark on their first day at Nomed Academy ready for the adventure of starting a new school. But when all three of them are late to assembly they realise there is more to their new Headteacher than anyone could imagine.

Nora, Stef and Jacob, with the help of a trapped Priestess Miss Ali, must face traps and riddles and mythical beasts in this tale of discovery. Curse of the Nomed shows us that every day is a new adventure for each of us with opportunities for friendship around every corner!
