We’ll be publishing the next book in Jannie Ho’s lovely Tiny Tabs series, Snuggle Puppy looks for the perfect hug!

Snuggle Puppy is looking for the perfect hug. The hedgehogs are too spiky, the worms are too wiggly, the rabbits are just too jumpy . . . will she ever find a hug that is just right?

A series of EXTREMELY cute animals lead you through this gentle story, with a very sweet and comforting ending. This charming little board book has chunky, very sturdy, tabs to push and pull, and is perfect for babies and toddlers aged one year and upwards.

No longer content with building, or zooming, or even rescuing, the dinosaurs now have their sights set on something much, much bigger… The MOON! Join our fearsome friends as they prepare for their cosmic journey: is the rocket all ready? Will the launch go smoothly? Can they make it to the moon? Another fast and furious adventure for anyone who loves dinosaurs AND vehicles!

We’ll also be publishing Love, the newest addition to Emma Dodd’s stunning animal book series.

Join little rabbit and his mummy as they spend a glorious sunny day together in the meadow. Little rabbit finds love everywhere, but knows that a mummy’s love is always the best love of all.

This gorgeous book has lots of sparkly gold foil throughout, perfect for bringing a bit for festive glitter to the cold January days!

If you fancy a good fractured fairytale this January, why not go for The Last Book Before Bedtime – the latest book by wonderful award-winning author/illustrator Nicola O’Byrne.

Everyone knows that the very last story before bed is the best story of all. But the problem is, everyone wants to be in that very last story! A familiar fairy tale is turned topsy-turvy when Cinderella hijacks the story of The Three Little Pigs, then Little Red Riding Hood jumps in, adamant that her story is better because it’s full of danger. And then the Big Bad Wolf turns up too! But disaster strikes! Uh-oh! What will they do? The reader is still awake and needs a story! The characters make up their own story, of course, and one with enough funniness, romance, danger AND cake (obviously) to keep everyone happy.

More of an adventure than a storybook, this fantastic romp through the fairytale universe is bound to be the last book before bedtime time and time again!

Littleland: All Year Round is also up for grabs – now in paperback! This lovely book is the third in the Littleland series, and is beautifully illustrated by Marion Billet.

Loosely following the months of the year, this colourful, busy book follows the little ones as they take part in seasonal activities, from visiting the spring lambs to paddling on the beach to cooking for an autumn feast. Filled with images and references that all toddlers will identify with, and with lots to talk about, this title is domestic and familiar, and just perfect for sharing.

A brand new book from award-winning Pamela Butchart, and illustrated by the brilliant Gemma Correll, Pugly Bakes a Cake is The Great British Bake-Off meets Beethoven (1992 film, not 18th century composer).

Even a tiny pug can have a big dream! Pugly is going to bake the best cake ever! It’s going to have eggs and cream and spaghetti and EVERYTHING in it! Clem the cat thinks Pugly can’t do it, but Clive the goldfish knows he can. If only Pugly hadn’t got himself stuck in the catflap…

Another fantastic fiction title is out next month in the form of The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, by Christopher Edge, the author of the brilliant Twelve Minutes to Midnight trilogy.

When Albie’s mum dies, it’s natural he should wonder where she’s gone. His parents are both scientists and they usually have all the answers. Dad mutters something about Albie’s mum being alive and with them in a parallel universe. So Albie finds a box, his mum’s computer and a rotting banana, and sends himself through time and space to find her…

And finally, you can also get your hands on a copy of our very first National Trust title – the Complete Bird Spotter’s Kit! Written by Robyn Swift and illustrated by Mike Langman, this comprehensive kit is the perfect introduction to birdwatching for children aged 8–12!

Ideal for any budding birdwatchers, this backpack encourages children to get outside and spot birds in the wild! Children will be able to use their own binoculars, and then scribble down notes in their handy notebook. The spotter’s guide is packed with useful information about how to get started, as well as a comprehensive field guide section full of expert tips on how to identify a species when they’re out and about.
