A brilliant pair of picture books for your bouncing busy little youngsters from Silvia Borando and Walker Books' new Minibombo range

With bold bright illustrations and fabulously clever ideas, two new titles in Walker Books' new "Minibombo" range have definitely caught our eye this week.

"Near, Far" and "Now you See Me, Now you Don't" by Silvia Borando both combine brilliant design with tons of colourful fun for very little ones.

In "Near, Far" children can have fun guessing which animal each page spread is focusing on - before turning the page to reveal the answer.

Even Charlotte loved the guessing game (and we were both wrong many times, the rabbit in particular caught us out!). This wordless picture book positively encourages interaction and participation and will have your little ones giggling and squealing with delight.

The same is also true of "Now you see me, Now you don't" which combines bold animal designs with a clever use of colour to 'hide' animals with each turn of the page.

Can you remember who each pair of eyes belonged to?

We don't want to spoil this one for you but keep an eye on the bottom right hand corner of each double page spread. How can that animal hide in each colourful scene? The answer will definitely make you giggle!

Both Minibombo titles are out now, released on March 3rd 2016 in Hardback from Walker Books.

Happy spotting!
