“Irresistible little books to inspire and entertain new readers.”

Pam, who writes for the Lancashire Evening Post, has written a great review for the our latest Early Reader, which “has proved so popular with teachers, librarians and – most important of all – young readers.”

A Gold Star for George by Alice Hemming 

“Alice Hemming, who is passionate about picture books, provides the ‘aah’ factor in this appealing and heart-warming story while illustrator Kimberley Scott turns the menagerie of animals into quirky, lovable little characters.”

Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers by Alex English 

“Alex English serves up a real treasure trove of treats in this fun-packed story which follows Brad on his voyage of discovery through the high seas, and Duncan Beedie’s lively, detailed illustrations, including the motley crew of dastardly pirates, are a delight.”

“This charming, addictive adventure, full of quirky characters and lively illustrations, conveys subtle messages about standing up to bullies, having faith in your own abilities and learning that a problem shared is a problem halved.”


I Wish I’d Been Born a Unicorn by Rachel Lyon  

“Andrea Ringli provides the colourful, characterful illustrations for a story that resonates with warmth, wisdom and camaraderie.”

This funny, cautionary tale from author Phil Allcock will be a favourite with every mischievous child, and the unique illustrative style of Steve Stone, who excels in bold pictures full of expression and humour, has a special appeal for young children..

A wonderfully anarchic story that makes learning fun.”
