Not Without my Whale by Billy Coughlan and Villie Karabatzia

Do you ever remember wanting desperately to sneak your pet into your bag or pocket to take to school with you? A hamster? A gerbil? Maybe even a mouse but what if your pet was a great big stonkingly gigantic beaming blue whale? That’s the dilemma in this rather ticklishly fun tale from Billy Coughlan and Villie Karabatzia. Fun and original! Don’t leave home without it (or your whale!)

Aerodynamics of Biscuits by Clare Helen Welsh and Sophia Toulitou

“The Aerodynamics of Biscuits by Clare Helen Welsh and Sophia Touliatou might win this year’s award for “Most Original Children’s Book Title” – I mean who could fail to be intrigued by a book with a name like that!

This book is utterly brilliant and inventive, with a wonderfully paced tale underpinned with mouthwatering biccie-flavoured illustrations. Be warned though, reading this story is likely to make your tummy rumble a lot and may prompt pre-bedtime raids to the biscuit jar!”
