My Mum and Dad Make Me Laugh
In this firm family favourite from Nick Sharatt, the award-winning illustrator of the Jacqueline Wilson books, mum is crazy about spots – spotty clothes, spotty wallpaper, spotty games like dominoes. Dad, on the other hand, loves stripes – stripy suits and stripy ties, stripy humbug sweets. No wonder they make their son laugh! Mind you, they think that he's funny in his grey patternless clothes. When they go to the safari park, Mum goes wild about the big cats, while Dad enthuses over the zebras. But what animal will their son like?
The Pig in The Pond
This is the story of Neligan's pig – who's feeling very hot and bothered! It's one of the most sizzling days of the summer, and the pig sits by the pond watching the ducks and geese playing on the cool water. The pig gets warmer and warmer, the ducks and the geese get louder and louder. Neligan's pig knows that pigs don't swim – but she just has to take a dive! And she's not the only one on the farm who's sweltering... A riotous read-aloud to be shared over and over again.

She finds her brother in a mysterious forest where he has been turned to stone...
Willy The Champ
Join Willy as he takes on the big bad bully! Willy is different. He likes to read books and listen to music; he's no good at sports, although he tries; and wherever he goes he gets laughed at. But when he's threatened by the horrible Buster Nose he really comes into his own.
An inspiring, encouraging story for budding artists everywhere, the acclaimed illustrator of The Dot, Sky Colour and the Judy Moody series tells the story of Ramon, who loves to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywhere. Drawing is what Ramon does. It's what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently and she opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things exactly right...
In this inspiring, award-winning story of self-expression and creativity from Peter H. Reynolds, illustrator of Ish and the Judy Moody series, Vashti thinks she can’t draw. But her teacher is sure that she can. She knows that there’s creative spirit in everyone, and encourages Vashti to sign the angry dot she makes in frustration on a piece of paper. This act makes Vashti look at herself a little differently, and helps her discover that where there’s a dot there’s a way… With wit, charm and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds encourages even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark – and follow where it takes us.
