A Perfect Day

Lots of illustrators have a distinguishing style which makes their books immediately recognisable.

Or maybe two, but one has to be the second Steve. These two puffins are outraged. Their argument descends into sillier and sillier claims and hurtful…

When Grandad Was A Penguin

Hood’s delightful picturebook immediately invites the reader in on a joke that runs and develops throughout the story – what on earth could be making Grandad do all these strange and hilariously aquatic things?
