Meet the Parents
Do you ever feel like your parents are always telling you what to do? Well, they do have to do that sometimes, but there's a lot more to them than just giving orders. Did you know that they can also help you build awesome forts by being the poles to hold it up, or be a place to throw away food you don't like? They can even be your biggest cheerleader and help you grow tall! Your parents are pretty impressive, and they do so much more than boss you around.
Jack's Mega Machines: The Dinosaur Digger
Jack is a fantastic mechanic with a workshop that's super cool! When he drives through the magical doors, he goes on amazing adventures. Today, Jack has a unique job - he needs to fix a digger! But when he takes it for a spin, he ends up in a land full of scary dinosaurs. Uh-oh! Will Jack be able to get away from the mean T-Rex in his dinosaur digger? Let's hope so!
Keith the Cat with the Magic Hat
Meet Keith, the cat with extraordinary powers! Keith is not just any cat - he has a magic hat that makes him special. But one day, Keith loses his magic hat. Oh no! What will happen to Keith now? But as it turns out, Keith learns that he doesn't need his magic hat to do amazing things - magic is still possible without it! Follow Keith on his journey to discover that magic is everywhere, even without a fancy hat.
When the Dragons Came
Get ready for a wild ride in Poppledown Town! One day, a bunch of silly dragons comes crashing into the town, and they're causing quite a commotion. Before you know it, chaos ensues everywhere! The market is in shambles, the library is noisier than a rock concert, and the playgroup has never seen such rowdy little ones! Will Poppledown Town ever be able to return to its peaceful ways? It's hard to say, but one thing is for sure - these dragons are here to shake things up!
No-Bot: The Robot with No Bottom
Meet Bernard the Robot - he's on a mission to find his missing bottom! While playing at the park, Bernard loses his bottom while swinging. But every time he gets close to finding it, it seems to disappear again! First, a bird tries to use it as a nest but finds it too heavy. Then, a bear uses it as part of his drum kit but finds it too tinny. Even some squirrels get in on the action and use it to build sandcastles! Now it looks like they're sailing away with it. Will Bernard ever be able to get his bottom back? It's a mystery, but he's determined to keep searching!
Dogs Don't do Ballet
Let me tell you about my special dog - he's unlike any other! He doesn't do the usual dog things like scratching fleas, weeing on lampposts or drinking from the toilet. Instead, my dog enjoys moonlight walks and listening to music while walking on his tiptoes! You see, my dog doesn't think he's a dog at all - he thinks he's a ballerina! It's quite unusual, but we love him just the way he is. So if you see a dog gracefully prancing around in the moonlight, don't be surprised - it might just be my furry little ballerina!
Dylan's Amazing Dinosaurs: The T.Rex
Dylan absolutely loves dinosaurs! He's very lucky to have his Grandfather's Dinosaur Journal and a special toy pterodactyl named Wings that comes to life! Whenever Dylan opens the journal, Wings pops up, and together, they fly off to a magical land where dinosaurs still roam free. It's an incredible adventure where Dylan gets to see and learn all about different kinds of dinosaurs. Thanks to his magic toy and his Grandpa's journal, Dylan gets to go on a wild journey like no other kid has ever been on!
Gary's Banana Drama
Gary really, really wants a banana. He looks up and sees something yellow in a tree. Could it be a banana? Nope, it's just a bird's beak. Then something else yellow flies through the air. Could it be a banana this time? Oh no, it's just Billy's boomerang! But wait, what's that he sees in the distance? Could it be the biggest banana in the world? It's worth a shot, so Gary sets off to investigate! Will he finally get his hands on a delicious banana?
Izabelle Gizmo is a clever inventor, but her inventions never seem to turn out right, and that makes her feel angry. One day, she discovers a crow with a broken wing and wants to help. Can she set aside her frustrations and fix the bird's wing so it can fly again?
The Perfect Hug
There are hugs for wrigglers, and hugs for gigglers. Hugs that are tickly and hugs that are prickly. But none is exactly the right hug for me! I'm out to find the perfect kind. This fabulous feel-good picture book is bursting with the cuddliest, snuggliest, most perfect hugs.
The Runaway Pea: Washed Away
One day, a daring pea goes on a wild adventure down the drain. Despite the scary surroundings, he's excited to explore and make new friends. But can this adventurous pea make it out of the sewers unscathed, or will he end up being someone's meal?
Have you Seen my Giraffe?
Guess what? You know those little fish you used to win at the fair? Now you can win a giraffe instead! How cool is that? But wait, having a giraffe as a pet can be tricky. They're huge and not so graceful, so you'll need to find some good hiding spots. Check out our guide to help keep your new friend safe and happy at home!
Nine Lives Newton
Meet Newton – the dog who thinks he has nine lives and infinite luck. And if Newton has nine lives, he could do all his favourite things but be MUCH more daring.
Once upon a time, there was a baby named Amy who was born with very little hair. But as she grew older, her hair grew longer and longer until it was like something out of a magical storybook! It was so long that she could use it to help a prince climb a tower. But having hair this long wasn't easy, especially on windy days. Luckily, Amy's dad had some creative ideas to help her out, and soon everyone wanted to try out his amazing hairdos!
