Remember the Pigeon? Famous from his stellar appearances in Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, The Pigeon Wants a Hotdog, and Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late? Of course you remember the Pigeon! He is HILARIOUS. And he returns in The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? which will disappoint neither the hardcore Pigeon fans nor the newly introduced. Fab.
You may also remember the delightfully furry Splat the Cat (and his best friend Seymour the Mouse). In this new and exciting adventure Splat goes secret agent as he attempts to solve the mystery of the disappearing mice.
The Hueys in The New Jumper is the first in a new series by the marvellous creator Oliver Jeffers. "The thing about the Hueys was that they were all the same. Until the day one of them knitted a nice new jumper..."
And finally, The Birthday Cake Mystery by The Tjong-Khing is a wonderful, wordless, detective story, perfect for whiling away the winter hours.
