Zog, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (they wrote and drew THE GRUFFALO)
Princess and Fairy Twinkly Ballerinas, Anna Pignataro (with glitter)

my personal favourite:

The Noisy Book, Soledad Bravi

With its gorgeous and quirky illustrations and fabulous descriptions of noises (the drum goes ratatat, the bottle goes mmm, the rabbit goes tntntnstn, the socket goes NO!) It's sure to be a Christmas fave.


  1. This is a message (mostly) for Kate about the book 'Trash':

    These are questions from 29/10:

    Where do dumpsite boys get food from?
    Where is the job of a dumpsite boy done?
    Does Rat have a secret family?
    Why are so many children without mums and dads?
    Why is it common to only have one parent or none or only one sibling?

    These are questions from 1/11:

    Why are the police so mean?
    Why out of all the boys did Raphael get taken away by the police?

    These are question from 9/11:

    Where did Maria go?
    What happened to her?
