Proving that parents will do just about anything for a longer evening and/or better night’s sleep, The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep has become a bestseller. In fact, it has become the first self-published book ever to reach number 1 on the Amazon charts. I am actually amazed at this fact, and can only put it down to the first sentence above… parents just want their kids to sleep.

Little Elliot lives in a Big City, but leads a quiet life. He’s just a little guy so life can present some challenges. He gets through by enjoying the simple things and finding friendship in an unlikely place. This is a stunningly beautiful picture book with a lovely story.
You can own the complete adventures of Hairy Maclary in one volume. And it comes with a CD reading the stories and telling the background of where the stories came from. This volume is actually a kiwi kid’s dream come true!
Summer’s a’knockin’ at the door, and I find myself wanting light, delicious, crisp items on my plate in the evenings. This book will help you ‘include more ‘greens’ in your diet and cut back on processed foods’. We all need that, right?
Sara is 28 and has never been outside Sweden – except in the (many) books she reads. When her elderly penfriend Amy invites her to come and visit her in Broken Wheel, Iowa, Sara decides it’s time. But when she arrives, there’s a twist waiting for her – Amy has died. Finding herself utterly alone in a dead woman’s house in the middle of nowhere was not the holiday Sara had in mind. But Sara discovers she is not exactly alone.
The Boy at the Top of the Mountain is a new novel from the author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. “Pierrot knows nothing about the Nazis when he is sent to live with his aunt in a mysterious house at the top of the mountain. But this is no ordinary house. This is the Berghof. Taken under Hitler’s wing, Pierrot is swept up into a dangerous new world – and ultimately, he must choose where his loyalties lie.”
Just occasionally, as a reviewer, a book arrives that takes your breath away. Little Elliot – Big Family has become our family’s new favourite. It is entrancing. “A heart-warming tale of friendship and life in the big city featuring Elliot, the irresistible little polka-dot elephant.”
