Molly's Moon Mission
Author: Duncan Beedie Illustrator: Duncan Beedie
A wonderful story with a message to "never give up", my eldest loved this book. Great pictures that aren't too busy and the language used is nice and soothing making it perfect for bedtime. We particularly liked the fact that Molly the moth was strong and female which has encouraged my daughter to play astronauts even more.

That's not my puppy...
Author: Fiona Watt Illustrator: Rachel Wells
Fantastic addition to this series and again what we expected- great touchy feely areas and vibrant pictures. My girls love finding the mouse on each page too and the gold and glitter with this version is a lovely extra touch. Perfect, especially with the variety of dogs shown, we can't fault this book or the series :)

Pig the Pug
Author: Aaron Blabey Illustrator: Aaron Blabey
Great story book and the illustrations are just hilarious, don't think my daughter's laughed so loud at pictures before! Frey really loved the quote "pig flipped his wig" and the important message about sharing is just brill. We can't fault it and will be looking for the others in this series for more laughs at bedtime :)

Jingle Spells
Author: James Brown
Really great idea combining the holiday occasions all children love best- Christmas and Halloween! We follow Trixie- a determined young witch who sets out to prove not all witches should be on the naughty list. Wonderful detailed illustrations which my girls loved but overall we felt that the story got a bit muddled and rushed in places... although it did help us get in the festive mood!

Authors: Sue Hendra , Paul Linnet
Superato and Cake are my daughters favourite books so we were both eager to read what Hendra and Linnet had come up with next and it definitely didn't disappoint! We follow a Snowballs journey down a hill with laugh out loud adventures, rhymes and wonderful accompanying illustrations. A new favourite and perfect for the festive season, we loved it.
