100 Bears by Magali Bardos
This fun, anarchic book takes readers on a journey from the number 1 to number 100, chasing a group of adventurous bears through mountains and forests and down into the city. It’s the perfect way for kids and parents to count together. Kids will improve their numeracy as each number leads to the next in this wacky, witty, wonderful story.
Wild About Shapes by Jeremie Fischer
Flick through this mystery trail where shapes resemble animals and animals resemble shapes. This beautifully crafted book is playfully designed so that animals hide and reveal themselves within pages of overlapping colour and alternating pages of printed acetate. Jérémie Fischer’s use of bold block colour and cleverly manipulated form will delight and fascinate readers of all ages.
Hug Me by Simona Ciraolo
Ever feel like you need a hug, a really big hug from someone? That’s
how Felipe the young cactus feels, but his family just isn’t the touchyfeely
kind. Cacti can be quite prickly sometimes you know… and so can
Felipe. But he’ll be darned if this one pointy issue will hold him back,
so one day Felipe sets off on his own to find a friend and, just maybe,
that long awaited hug.
In her debut picture book, Simona Ciraola creates an endearing tale of
friendship, beautifully illustrated with buoyant wit and the perfect story
Hungry Roscoe by David J Plant
Roscoe is a hungry raccoon and he’s fed up with eating rotten junk out of the bins. What he wouldn’t give for a lovely bit of fish or some fresh, juicy fruit – and where better to find food than at the zoo! An excellent idea. Except for the grumpy zookeeper who’s intent on keeping Roscoe OUT. But Roscoe’s determined to eat, and sure enough he’s come up with a plan to disguise himself as a zoo animal . . . What could possibly go wrong? Join in the mayhem in this hilarious picture book from new talent David J Plant.
Mr Tweed’s Good Deeds by Jim Stoten
A colourful counting book which engages children as they try to find hidden objects on each beautifully illustrated page.
The Best Book in the World by Rilla Alexander
If you found the best book in the World, would you stop reading? Could you stop reading? If you had homework to do, or dinner to get through, could you put the book down? On a train to the zoo or on a flight to Kalamazoo, would that break the spell? If in a forest you walked, while scary monsters stalked… would that be enough? If you’d crossed a desert that baked, or were swept off by a river that snaked, would you even take a break? If every animal in the land were to be led by a big band, in a grand parade in your honour made… would you put the book down? What could possibly be so good about a book? Well, open me up and find out for yourself!

Hilda and the Troll by Luke Pearson
While on an expedition to seek out the magical creatures of the mountains around her home, Hilda spots a mountain troll. As she draws it the blue-haired explorer starts to nod off… when she wakes, she finds herself lost in a snowstorm and her troll has totally disappeared.
