Elli Woollard is an exciting talent on the picture books scene, who started writing stories after an embarrassing incident in which her youngest son broke Michael Rosen's glasses. In addition to picture books, she also writes children's poems. Her snappy rhymes, catchy rhythms and witty stories are sure to make her a huge success. The Giant of Jum, her first book for Macmillan, was a hit debut and the start of her winning collaboration with Benji Davies. Elli lives in London with her four children, her husband and two guinea pigs.
Autumn is well and truly upon us, and so are some of the best new books for children - featuring a bat who loves cherries, a boy who is desperate to be a great magician, a scary cowboy and short stories from Rainbow Rowell.
Filled with witty, uplifting stories and brilliant illustrations, your child will want to read these picture books again and again.
Explore the kingdom of The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight with these fun activity sheets.
In this Giant of Jum activity kit, you draw your very own giant, help Squirrel find his woodland friends and spot the difference.
