A perfect picture book trio from Bloomsbury arrives for summer and autumn fun!

Bloomsbury Publishing have some picture book perfection lined up for you in August and September, with three new titles to tickle your fancy.

First, the follow up to the awesome "Beastly Pirates" in John Kelly's new book "Munch, Crunch, Pirate Lunch!"

The Beastly Pirates are the scourge of the seven seas - they keep eating all the swashbuckling buccaneers that cross their path!

Pirate leader Heartless Bart has had enough of losing his best pirates, so he comes up with a dastardly plan to rid the seas of those foul creatures once and for all.

Donning an impressive suit of armour, Bart reckons he's more than a match for sharp teeth, death squeezes and rhino charges. But has Bart forgotten that it's not just brute strength that can outwit a dimwit. Sometimes a dose of brain power works wonders too!

John Kelly's brilliant swashbuckling sequel once again dishes up a seriously tasty stew of pirate funnies and crazy animal antics. Guaranteed to have your little ones shouting "Ar HARRR!" at every turn of the page.

"Munch, Crunch, Pirate Lunch" was released on 11th August 2016.

Next, blog favourite Sam Lloyd is back with a new book, a soothing and adorable tale to help little ones with their first day at school.

Sam, creator of the awesome "Calm Down, Boris" and many many other fab books now invites you to enjoy "First Day at Bug School", an entertaining and funny new rhyming book for your tiny tiddlers.

For tiny bigs, going to "Bug School" may seem daunting at first.  But don't be nervous, as there are new friends to be made, new lessons to learn and a whole lot of fun to be had.

Sam's brilliant rhymes and fab illustrations make this a delightful romp. Guaranteed to make you smile and giggle!

"First day at Bug School" was released on 11th August 2016.

Last but not least, a picture book debut for a much-loved CBeebies character, this time exploring the fun of splishing, splashing and sploshing!

In "Watch out for Muddy Puddles" Ben (Mr Bloom) Faulks teams up with Ben ("Aliens Love Underpants") Cort for a glorious celebration of the art of splashing around in wellie boots in big dark murky puddles.

This rollicking sing-song rhyming book is brilliantly entertaining as little ones are encouraged to get on their fave pair of boots and splosh around in the great outdoors. But watch out for hidden perils. No one wants to come a cropper because of a sneaky crocodile!

It's a fab debut and we see great things ahead for Ben and Ben! A truly talented team!

"Watch out for Muddy Puddles" is released on September 8th by Bloomsbury Publishing.
