Using elements of realistic fiction with magical realism, this is the story of a young girl's overwhelming loss of her older sister and the fox who just may be able to help her through her grief.

We've just read The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake. My daughter is becoming a real Roald Dahl fan so we're just contemplating which book to read next...!

Hello people.

I'm new here, and am looking forward to connecting with everyone.

I'm a new author, about to self-publish my first novel, a scifi adventure about parallel universes, which is aimed at everyone from age 10 upwards.

I hope we can be friends!

With Shark Week/SharkFest starting soon, I thought I'd re-share my list of ten picture books featuring sharks from last year. I'll be posting a list of ten more on Friday.

It's 1943, WWII is raging around the world, but life in Wolf Hollow is relatively calm and quiet until a new girl arrives and stirs up all kinds of trouble.

The Smartest Giant in Town is the story of kindness and friendship and shows that helping others can reap its own rewards.

Congratulations to one of my writers, +Susan Count, for winning First Place at American Horse Publications for her debut book this weekend! (Psst, this is the second time Selah's Sweet Dream took first place! It won Gold in the Feathered Quill Awards. Definitely worth reading!) https://www.amazon.com/Selahs-Sweet-Dream-Susan-Count/dp/0997088303/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1466551700&sr=8-1&keywords=selah%27s+sweet+dream

They've helped millions of children to read and parents either love them or hate them. Who are Biff, Chip and Kipper and what are they really called?

Summer is a great time to read about bugs! We had lots of great "Bug" books last week in storytime, including an Eric Carle book I'd never seen before and some fun pop-ups.

Hi Everyone. I wrote this fun book for my little Miss when she was in primary school. She really loved it. It’s so important to get the message through to children that they don’t have to change who they are to fit into all that peer pressures may try to force upon them in a school environment. The book centres around a group of fun loving bees known as the ‘Buzzy Bees’ and a group of ‘Look at Me’ Butterflies.
The message of this book is “Gotta love to ‘bee’ you”. The story is written to show children that it is great to be yourself and enjoy the important things in life such as, fun, laughter and great friendships.
