This has to be one of the best colour recognition books that I have seen in a while. The meerkats are cute, the words flow easily, and it is one of those books that are playfully engaging.
Lydia Williams in goalkeeper for the Matilda’s and her message is clear, ” I just want to motivate and hopefully be a role model for kids so that they know they can do anything they set their mind to. And have fun whilst doing it too”. She has done this through her first book Saved!!!

Who would have thought that the Easter Bunny would get his knickers in a knot and be so jealous of Santa Clause? I know, I was surprised too, I have always thought of them as being the cheeriest best of friends, living in harmony, and enjoying the celebrations of each other’s jobs.
A young knight (boy), protects his castle (his play equipment) with a (cardboard) sword. Beware, he is watching and listening and inspiring the imagination of children.
I am not a fan of books that actually scare children which is why I like this one so much, it takes a holiday that is known for its spookiness and made into an story with a delightful sense of bizarre with a side of sibling rivarly and surprise.
Shelly Unwin has again delighted the reader with her ability to bring books alive, creating an atmosphere of fun and waggishness. There’s a Baddie Running Through This Book is her best yet and I am not only excited about this book but for what she will delight us with in the future.
Lucia & Lawrence is a heartwarming and exceptional book that explores friendship, special needs, similarities, differences, inclusiveness and creativity. It is a story of two people who find themselves becoming friends even though they see the world in different ways, one full of whimsy and creativeness, the other living in a world of numbers and structure.
