All the Animals Were Sleeping

This lovely picture book follows a little mongoose as he crosses the plains of the Serengeti. With night falling, he makes his way back to his burrow while passing animals sleeping.

Book Cover - I Love Tractors

I Love Tractors!

‘Have you any tractor books?’ is a question I’ve often been asked while working in libraries and I’ll certainly be offering this book to the next child who asks! I Love Tractors is a beautifully illustrated book, full of glorious colour and rhyming text – perfect for reading aloud at storytime or bedtime. I particularly like how the illustrator has depicted the library within the story as a vibrant, child-friendly place where children are snuggled up in nooks, reading for pleasure.

Book Cover - Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue

Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue

Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue opens with the wonderful lines: ‘Don’t let fear hold you back. You’re braver than you think.’ It sets a brilliant tone for this enchanting book about a superhero-in-training with special feline powers. This is the first book of a six-part series that focuses on friendship, bravery and loyalty.

Book Cover - The Boys

The Boys

A companion to the highly successful and beautifully illustrated picturebook The Girls, The Boys follows the lives and friendship of four boys – Rey, Nattie, Bobby and Tam – through the years of babyhood to adulthood. We first meet the boys on a beach with their mothers and follow them through their adolescence and into adulthood. Throughout the book the beach plays an important role for the boys; as they learn and grow, the beach at times seems to be its own character.
