Is a unique and hilarious tale about a grumpy little dragon called Cedric – Cedric loves his bedtime story so much that he wants to hear it again . . . and again . . . and again . . . A cross dragon is a fiery dragon, and Cedric ends up burning a hole right through the book!
Orange Pear Apple Bear
is a gloriously simple yet wonderfully effective and funny way of exploring colours, fruit, rhyme and the importance of the comma – The Sunday Times called it “daring, original and a joy”.
In The Odd Egg
all the birds have laid an egg except duck, and he wants one too. Luckily he finds an egg of his own, but it’s rather large, with green spots, and it might
not be a baby duck that’s inside. The irreverent illustrations and cleverly cut split pages revealing the contents of each bird’s egg are a work of sheer genius.
Sunny the meerkat is bored of life in the desert with his meerkat mob so he sets off on his travels to see the world. However, the world isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be, and worse still there seems to be something (or someone
) following Sunny. Children will love reading the shiny postcards that Sunny sends home to his family and spotting all the hidden treats and subtle details.
And last but not least is the beautiful Tidy
– with its die-cut double-sided jacket and very funny rhyming story about an overly tidy badger and wonderful details to spot on every page it’s a truly spectacular picture book.
