Who Woke the Baby, a BEAUTIFUL new picture book written by Jane Clarke and illustrated by Charles Fuge, is in shops today – irresistible illustrations, coupled with an incredibly satisfying cyclical text and repeated refrains, make this an unforgettable, read-along romp of a book, by the creators of the Gilbert the Great series. Here’s a look inside the book:

We’re publishing the first paperback edition of Pip and Posy: Look and Say by Axel Scheffler – an engaging picture book with richly-detailed scenes, a conversational, friendly text and Axel’s characteristic touches of humour. Here’s a look inside:

There’s also a new paperback edition of Alison Murray’s fantastic picture book Princess Penelope and the Runaway Kitten out today – a tactile treat of a book with glitter on every page! Follow Princess Penelope as she runs through the palace and the palace grounds, including a maze, garden and the royal stables, chasing her naughty runaway kitten – the kitten is all tangled up with wool, which makes a crazy pink glitter trail of shapes behind her as she leaps and jumps through the book. Here’s a look inside:

And finally, it’s publication day for My Great Success and other Failures, the fourth hilarious book in Catherine Wilkins’ brilliant series. Jess’s cartoons are actually beginning to take off. A local comic store wants to use them in a campaign and she is in danger of becoming really rather famous (at school). This leads to some tensions with her friends. Why can’t people be happy for her? It’s not as if success is going to her head, or anything. Or actually that it’s anything like success at all… Here’s a look inside the book:

Congratulations to all of today’s authors and illustrators!
