And it’s a bonanza month for paperback picture books, too – we have FOUR fantastic titles out in paperback in February! We’re publishing Captain Beastlie’s Pirate Party by Lucy Coats and Chris Mould (which is also being simultaneously published in a STUNNING hardback edition) – a funny, disgusting story with gorgeous artwork that’s perfect for readers who like bogeys and birthdays. The book’s already getting rave reviews – we wrote about a glowing verdict from The Book Sniffer on our blog yesterday. Here’s a look inside:
We’re publishing the first paperback edition of the incredible Open Very Carefully, by Nick Bromley and Nicola O’Byrne – one our most successful hardback titles last year, with a Greenaway nomination to its name already. It’s a lovely book for sharing and discussing how words and pictures work – with a very clever story and stunning use of the physical page. Here’s a look inside:
You can win the first paperback edition of Weasels by Elys Dolan – another Greenaway-nominated picture book that was also shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. It’s almost impossible to put into words how original and witty this book is: imagine spoof James Bond meets Scaredy Squirrel if you can. It’s packed with cross-over humour to amuse kids and big kids too. The art is stylish yet accessible and full of details for poring over time and time again – there’s always a new joke to find! Here’s a look inside:
And we’re publishing the first paperback edition of Pip and Posy: The Big Balloon by Axel Scheffler, the fourth wonderful volume in the Pip and Posy series. Full of comfort and gentle humour, these books are perfect for reading to toddlers. Here’s a look inside:
Don’t forget – all of our paperback picture books come with a free Stories Aloud reading, giving you a digital audio version of each book, available to stream online.
And there’s also some great new fiction up for grabs!
Next month we’re publishing Zoe’s Rescue Zoo: The Silky Seal Pup, by Amelia Cobb – the latest instalment in the fantastic Zoe’s Rescue Zoo series. Zoe is very worried because the rescue zoo might have to close down. She MUST find a way to save it or the new baby seal will lose his home. And so will Zoe…
And finally, you can win Space Pirates: Mutiny, by Jim Ladd – the third thrilling Space Pirates book. Sam and the crew of the Jolly Apollo are still searching for Planet X, where they hope to find Sam’s parents and a whole load of treasure! This time they are joined by a new pirate. Goldstar is flashy and takes them to Pirate Paradise, before making them get rid of poor old Captain Comet. It’s mutiny! But Goldstar is not all that he seems… A fast- paced, funny series with gags galore, this is a chase through space that will have you cackling from start to finish!
