Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Missing Masterpiece
Author: Tracey Corderoy Illustrator: Steven Lenton
We thought this story was brill. Excellent story with characters from a book we already know.loved that it was set in Paris, and we enjoyed talking about the silly paintings in the pictures, we even looked up their real counterparts after reading. 
Really fun story that very much enjoyed by my daughter.

A Dinosaur Alphabet: The ABCs of Prehistoric Beasts!
Author: Michelle M. Hasselius Illustrator: Clair Rossiter
A very interesting dino book! A dinosaur for every letter of the alphabet with interesting facts and cool pictures too. I particularly liked the phonetic spelling of each dinosaur name, very useful!

Peep Inside A Fairy Tale Sleeping Beauty
Author: Anna Milbourne Illustrator: Karl James Mountford
A simple version on the fairy tale but very beautifully done. The cut out pages are really nice and help to tell the story. My daughter really enjoyed lifting the flaps. Although this is a board book of sorts I wouldn't recommend it for younger children as the flaps are quite easily ripped.

Peep Inside a Fairy Tale Cinderella
Author: Anna Milbourne Illustrator: Karl James Mountford
A beautifully made Cinderella story. My daughter really enjoyed this version of the fairy tale, the cut through pictures are really pretty and well thought out and the story is nice and simple. Probably wouldn't be great for younger children as the flaps and cut outs are quite easy to tear and you really need the child to wait until the right moment to open the flaps so the story makes sense.

The Emperor's Egg
Author: Martin Jenkins Illustrator: Jane Chapman
A brilliant book about the lives of emporer penguins. Full of interesting facts about how they live written in a conversational manner that was very easy to read. Lovely illustrations that my 4 yr old enjoyed.
