Book:365 Penguins

365 Penguins

Jean-Luc Fromental, Joëlle Jolivet

On the first day of the new year, the mailman brings a surprise - a penguin! One by one, day by day, penguins fill the house. At first they are cute, but with every passing day, the penguins pile up - along with the family's problems. Feeding, cleaning, and housing the penguins becomes a monumental task! But who is sending these penguins, and why?

In a large format, and with lots of opportunity for counting, 365 Penguins is sure to become a wintertime staple.

Book:Wolves

Wolves

Emily Gravett

Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straightforward enough. But it's not long before a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep right off the pages. You won't believe your eyes especially if you're a rabbit.

Brilliantly witty, with amazing artwork, two surprise endings, plus fun novelty elements, "Wolves" created a real buzz of excitement among critics and booksellers alike on first publication in 2005.
