A sweet book about an adventure at grandma's, who Noi doesn't think really cares, but it is clear she really does!  An approaching storm allows Noi to befriend a little bird, and Grandma's rescue of Noi leads to rescuing a number of birds as well, but it is the first bird who decides to stay.  I found this book better written than the other Benji Davies books, it flows better in my opinion.  I like the way Noi and the six cats are repeated at the beginning of each book, and the continuity of the characters in addition to the illustrations.  A lovely addition to our library and loved by my children (although it often leads to us reading the Storm Whale and the Storm Whale in Winter books too so bedtime does stretch out somewhat!).

Christmas Eve at the Mellops'

A charming story about some pigs who go out to share the joy of Christmas with those less fortunate.  I loved the little details like "people banks" instead of piggy banks, and the idea of giving to others at Christmas is such an important one.  The illustrations are simple but effective in a tonal colour palette.  A lovely alternative at Christmas, and well liked by my children.
