A bumper crop of picture book lovelies coming from Little Tiger Press in August
Dog tries desperately to convince Cat (with help from Giraffe, Penguin and a whole host of other animals) that a tidy house is a comfy house, but it's taking some doing. Little ones will absolutely adore reading along to this one, and Richard Smythe's fantastic Jon Klassen-like illustrations are a complete win for us.
"The Messy Book" is out on 28th July from Little Tiger.
Mouse is scampering home through the deep dark rackety wood and as he scampers he hears a fearsome "AAA-OOO!"
What could be making that horrible blood-curdling howl? Could it be Owl, Moose, Bear or Goose? Or could it be ...a monster?
A superb bedtime read (despite the initial 'scary' aaa-ooo, great to join in with the hooting and howling though!). Jonny Lambert's endearing and awesome animal creations and illustrations really make this book stand out. What is The Great Aaa-ooo though? Hah, we're not going to tell you, you'll have to read this fantastic book to find out.
Out on August 1st from Little Tiger.
Next, it's a rootin' tootin' pencil-packing galoot with a big hat and an equally big heart.
A gaggle of sneaky Racoons are out to make mischief at the annual Bunny Cupcake Carnival.
Can even a super-swift sketcher like Paws put up with those nefarious furry miscreants?
Who knows, maybe you can help Paws with your own doodles (though we'd politely ask you not to draw in the book, tempting as it may seem!)
A hugely original and entertaining book for cowboy-obsessed little ones (yes, like Charlotte!), "Paws McDraw" is out on 1st August from Little Tiger.
Last but by no means least...another dark and delicious tale of mythical mysterious monsters...
Little Brother will not be allowed to join in Big Brother's game until he tracks down a Snappenpoop.
But everybody knows there's no such thing as a Snappenpoop ...or IS there?
Picture book superstar Jeanne Willis is teamed up with debut illustrator Matt Saunders for a book packed with magical creatures and bossy brothers. We loved the delicious twist in the tail of this tale! "There's No Such Thing as a Snappenpoop" is out on 1st August from Little Tiger.
