Author: Hannah Whitty Illustrator: Paula Bowles
Superkitty is a small but daring kitty, underestimated by colleagues but who faces adversity and wins in the most surprising way!

The illustrations are bold and bright, the characters are entertaining and the story is really fun. I really liked the style of the story and the vocabulary used was great for expanding young minds being completely different to any other children's book we've read. Best of all the book suits both boys and girls well. We love it.

How the Borks Became: An Adventure in Evolution
Author: Jonathan Emmett
This is a really fabulous book, fun, well illustrated, engaging and all about evolution written in such a way that children don't even know they are learning.  Choosing it from the library I had no expectations of this book but I am so glad we picked it up, our whole family enjoy reading it.  There is so much to look at on each page and it's bright and bold with a great visual for human evolution at the back, that prompted plenty of conversations in our house.  Absolutely recommend it.

The Koala Who Could
Author: Rachel Bright Illustrator: Jim Field
We absolutely love everything that Rachel and Jim create and this is no exception. 

The illustrations are vivid with so much to look at, the rhyming text so engaging, fun and wonderful to read  But best of all this story has such a brilliant message for young children about anxiety and worry, particularly when dealing with change and how wonderful things can be if you embrace them. We love it.

Blown Away
Author: Rob Biddulph
A beautiful and surprisingly funny picture book that we all absolutely love reading. 

A story about what happens when polar animals end up in a jungle adventure and how they mastermind a way back home  with a very funny monkey surprise.

My children delighted in the funny stowaway surprise and at each polar animal that got caught up in the kite  I loved the rhyming text and the beautiful illustrations that made it such a delight to read. This is one of those books we've Birkett from the library that we will but our own copy of to keep.

Alfie in the Woods
Author: Debi Gliori Illustrator: Debi Gliori
A simple little book about Alfies walk in the woods with his dad and the imaginative things that can be found. 

The story is very simple with small bits of text on each double page but does include some lovely descriptive words prefect for small children to hear.

The illustrations are big and bold with muted autumn colours. It is a lovely simple autumn story book for babies and young toddlers but didn't really make a lasting impression with us
