Last year was a monumental year for picture books and included some absolute gems. These were just a few of our favourites from 2016. But it looks like next year is starting as it means to go on too!
Here’s a sneaky peek at some of the picture books which are kicking off 2017 in style:
I Can Only Draw Worms by Will Mabbitt
A deceptively simple concept executed to perfection, with laugh-out-loud consequences. Presented in zingy yellow and neon pink this hilarious will engage the youngest and oldest audiences.
Surely most of us have faced this dilemma in one way or another? Even if it’s not a cat, the importance of getting a name just right is unfathomable and what happens when you’ve exhausted the list?
We cannot wait for the sequel to the utterly charming ‘Gaston‘. Antoinette is a poodle – a very special poodle. She has three brothers, each of whom have a talent but she doesn’t yet know what hers is. But she’s sure to find out!
Sometimes the best stories start with a little bit of nothing… But just watch this story crescendo with limitless imaginative concepts and humour-filled characters. Every story should have a ukulele-playing octopus!
Edie by Sophy Henn
A helpful little soul, Edie is always on hand to assist. Whether it be waking Mummy bright and early, ensuring Daddy remembers to get everything at the shops or making sure her little brother knows what’s what! A story that young families everywhere will identify with.
What would you do if you had a pet dinosaur? Think of all the things you could do together. What if you took it to school? And how would it fit in your house? What could possibly go wrong?! An imaginative, witty and strikingly illustrated story.
