Ingela P Arrhenius’s Felt Flap series is a Progressive Preschool Awards finalist!

We are really proud that our Felt Flaps series, including the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Award winning Where’s Mr Lion, has been selected as one of six finalists in the Best Preschool Publishing Range category of the Progressive Preschool Awards (PPS). Now in their 7th year, the PPS awards are organised by Max Publishing and Progressive Preschool Magazine, and aim to recognize and celebrate excellence across both product and retail.

These bright hide-and-seek board books feature a felt flap on every spread – and a surprise mirror reveal on the final page! With bold, graphic artwork from Swedish illustrator Ingela P Arrhenius, these sensory reads are perfect for sharing with babies and toddlers. There are fifteen books so far in this successful series, with more in the works.

“A proven baby pleaser.”

– Publisher’s Weekly Shelftalker Blog (US)

“A perfect book to share with very little ones, who will enjoy the bright felt flaps as a change from card.”

– Parents In Touch

“This is a lift-the-flaps book but with one amazing difference. The flaps are made of felt! They’re so perfect for little fingers that I am genuinely in shock that all picture books don’t do this.”

– From Baby to Brontë (blog)

“All with bold, clear, colourful illustrations and minimal text, these titles are ideal for very young children.”

– Carousel

“This board book is ideal for babies and those starting to explore (and chew!) books for themselves.”

– Folded Corners (blog)

“Even the tiniest book-lovers will be able to interact with this board book with its easy-to-turn and sturdy card pages. The bold colours and gloriously bright felt make it a treat for the senses – even heavy-handed children won’t be able to tear these flaps off. Ingela P Arrhenius’ stylish illustrations look young and fresh so it’s an ideal gift for a first book or Christmas present.”
