Christmas Ideas: Picture Books

Do Not Open This Book, Andy Lee - £11.99
Oh! You opened the book. I assume that was an accident? No problem, accidents happen. I'm not even angry. Just please don't turn the page!

Monster will do anything for you to not open this book, but what will happen if you do? Young readers will love doing everything they are asked not to, and turning the pages to discover Monster's hilarious secret at the end of this funny picture book. Do Not Open This Book is the hilarious, best-selling new book from Australian radio DJ and comedian Andy Lee. A ridiculously funny story for kids, big and small... do you dare open this book?! 

Mix and Match Christmas - £4.99
Flip the pages of this fun mix-and-match book to create some of the funniest, Christmas characters you've ever seen! You can create your own kooky combinations by swapping the heads, bodies, and legs of Santa, a snowman, an elf, and their other magical friends for a really fun-filled Christmas!

A Letter for Bear, David Lucas - £10
Poor Bear, who will send him a letter? Come rain or shine, he works so hard delivering the post to all the animals of the wood but he never receives anything himself. Hardly surprising since he's never actually sent a letter! One day, Bear decides to write a few letters of his own, inviting all the forest animals to a party. 

 


If I Was a Banana, Alexandra Tylee - £6.99 
A book that celebrates imagination and possibility, this boy's-eye-view of the everyday brings alive all the wonder and oddity of the world. It is simple and funny yet resonant, and begs to be read again. 
 

I'll Love You for Ever, Owen Hart - £10.99 
Travel through the seasons with Polar Bear and Cub as they discover the world and the wonders within it. Although snow melts and leaves turn golden, Cub learns that a parent's love will never change. A beautiful, picture book celebration of the eternal bond between parent and child.
Heart-warming illustrations from Sean Julian (A Friend Like You and My Dad!) bring Owen Hart's gentle, reassuring rhyming story to life. Perfect for both mums and dads to share with their little ones. 

When I Grow Up, Tim Minchin - £12.99 
This hugely exciting picture book collaboration by internationally celebrated musician-comedian Tim Minchin and award-winning illustrator Steve Antony is an absolute treat for all ages. 

Inspired by Tim Minchin's hit song When I Grow Up from Matilda the Musical, the book takes a humorous yet moving look at adult life from a child's perspective. Grown-ups surely have all the fun as they must eat sweets every day, climb the biggest trees and watch cartoons till their eyes go square.

But do they really...? A truly magical picture book by two incredible talents.

I am Actually a Penguin, Sean Taylor - £6.99 
When a little girl is given a penguin suit she decides that living as a penguin is much more fun than just dressing as one. But penguins don't exactly behave like people. They don't ride the bus like people, they don't talk like people and they certainly don't catch fish fingers like people.

Her family tell her, "You're not actually a penguin," but she knows that she actually is. A hilarious new picture book from Sean Taylor, the author of What a Naughty Bird and Kasia Matyjaszek, author/illustrator of I am a Very Clever Cat.

 
Look Closer into the Arctic, Roger Priddy - £7.99 
Acetate windows draw you into a wintery wonderland as you journey through magical, Arctic landscapes in this beautifully illustrated book. The acetate pages build a layered effect, and as each page is turned, a habitat full of Arctic creatures is revealed. Journey through the Arctic forest, blustery tundra, and out into the ocean to meet polar bears, caribou, whales, and more interesting wildlife.
