Books for Topics have asked their community of teachers, authors,Â librarians and book lovers to nominate their favourite children’s books published in 2017 and we are thrilled to see that two of our picture books have been chosen!
“I love this book becauseÂ ofÂ the magic wishes in it. I really liked finding out what the wishes were going to be after the cat appeared. The best thing of all was when they save one of the wishes for the brother at the end and we can decide for ourselves about what hisÂ wish will be for!”Â
â€‹“Here at booksfortopics HQÂ we canâ€™t get enough of this humorous picture book with an irresistible repeated refrain!Â The story evokes elements of both The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Green Eggs and Ham, creating a wonderfully amusing new world of its own where boys negotiate lunchtime with bears in the most matter-of-fact kind of way. We love the bold, colourful illustrations that contrast the cartoon-like enormous bear with the photo-style collages ofÂ egg sandwiches, perfectly encapsulating the wayÂ in which the story merges the mundanity of lunchtime with the ludicrousness of the bear. We are certain that this one will quickly become a story-time favourite.”
Thank you so much. What a great way to start 2018!
