Return to Cardamom
Caramel is an elf, but no ordinary elf - she is telepathic and has the ability to get trees and computers to do as she pleases and is an amateur sleuth.

Bear Grylls adventures: The blizzard challenge
Olly is not having fun at camp. His rucksack is trying to kill him and building a shelter gives him splinters. But that night a mysterious compass transports him onto a glacier, where Bear Grylls, his guide, is waiting. The only way home is to trek across frozen lakes and through deep snow drifts, and Bear can see there's a blizzard coming.
