'A Wisp of Wisdom' is being printed as we speak! A huge thank you to the amazing booklovers from all over the world who raised over £10,000 to produce this beautiful limited UK edition and to donate 2,000 copies to the children of the Korup region of Cameroon, who otherwise would have no books - none at all. What a brilliant way to celebrate #childrensbookweek!

Illustrated by Emmie Van Biervliet. Written by Lucy Christopher, Abi Elphinstone, Adele Geras, Elizabeth Laird, Sarah Lean, Gill Lewis, Geraldine McCaughrean, Tom Moorhouse, Beverly Naidoo, Ifeoma Onyefulu​, and Piers Torday

Delighted with Alexis Filby's (Book Monsters) brilliant review of Sharanya Manivannan and Nerina Canzi's 'The Ammuchi Puchi.' Click on the link - don't miss her insightful comments AND the lovely collage she put together! http://bit.ly/2fxOGvq

'Enable sensitive children to cope with loss, in a stunning and hopeful way. But even more importantly, this is a celebration of life, love and family. A traditional story feel, bursting with bright colours and emotion set to the backdrop of beautiful India. One for every bookshelf and library.'

We're delighted to announce that 'The Tigon and the Liger' is published and winging -- or should we say pouncing! -- its way to a bookshop near you!

'Tyler the tigon is terribly rare,
A big cat like him isn't found everywhere.
Unique from his ears to his tail to his tum,
his dad was a tiger, a lion his mum.'

An uplifting story about diversity and tolerance told in rhyming verse by Keilly Swift and beautifully illustrated by Cosei Kawa.

'The Tigon and the Liger' by Keilly Swift and Cosei Kawa. A delightful story in rhyming verse about bullying, tolerance, mixed parentage, and learning to love the skin you’re in
–with the bonus of adorable cats.
