Brian the Lion Goes into Space by Tracey Radford

A rhyming picture book about a lion called Brian who goes on a space adventure. Sure to appeal to little ones who feel small but dream big and love all things to do with space. 

Whilst the other lions seem to sleep all day, Brian gazes at the stars, dreaming of going into space. He can't believe it when he's given a DIY rocket so that he can fulfil his dream. Zoom - he's off! Though things are exciting for a while, Brian is soon missing home, even the boring bits. What will Brian do? Will he stay in his new space home or return to his pride? Featuring one of craft expert Tracey Radford's adorable animal creations, Brian the Lion Goes into Space is a sweet tale, with a wonderful moral message, that will be loved by young children.

But being a hero is about to get a whole lot harder... Far away in a top-secret prison, the world's most feared supervillain has broken a thirty year silence. His first words?

The Bolds in Trouble by Julian Clary & David Roberts

The Bolds are back for another hilarious tale! This is a brilliant series for ages 7+ and our reviewers have LOVED the previous books. You can read their reviews and see the whole The Bolds Series here.

This time, Teddington's wildest family have decided to stay at home and keep their heads down - it isn't always easy hiding tails and fur under clothes, and it's important not to raise suspicion amongst their human neighbours. But trouble soon comes skulking when a very sly fox starts making a big nuisance of himself. It's up to the Bolds to try and stop him - but the solution has them foxed...

Written by Julian Clary, illustrated by David Roberts and published by Andersen Press.
