"The good witch Willow only uses good magic, and NEVER gets angry. But Hansel and Gretel test her patience to its... Continue Reading →


When we were looking at which picture books we wanted out on the table in work this month, this one jumped out. "Pants!" the 4-year-old inner me cheered. Of course, we had no way of knowing at this point if it would actually be any good, but the illustrations looked promising (how can anyone resist... Continue Reading →

The Big Book of the Blue

Meet all kinds of slippery, shimmery, powerful and surprising creatures from around the world in this first book of the ocean to share with young children.   Already a big fan of Yuval Zommer's Big Books of Bugs and Beasts, I jumped at the chance to get hold of a copy of his newest book...
