We’re Going On A Bear Hunt – Micheal Rosen

A Trotters favourite, “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” is a wonderfully written story following a family’s adventures. But where will their travels lead them and what will they find at the end?
Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, this 1989 Smarties Prize winner by Michael Rosen will no doubt become a favourite in your family too.

Demon Dentist – David Walliams

Alfie’s first visit to the dentist in a few years brings him face to face with a formidable foe: the Demon Dentist.

With the aid of his good friend Gabz, they pitch their wits against the evil tooth witch.

‘Demon Dentist’ is a wonderfully written book by comedian David Walliams, told with the same comedic flair and emotion as his screen characters, while being fun and suitable for all the family.



Cave Baby – Julia Davidson

Cave Baby is the perfect length story for bed time. Beautifully constructed this book by the UK’s favourite picture book writer, Julia Davidson will have your child dreaming of multicoloured mammoths.

The Day The Crayons Quit – Oliver Jeffers

Poor Duncan loves colouring, but he’s facing a rebellion in his pencil case! Yellow and Orange aren’t speaking, Black wants to be more than just an outline, Pink feels neglected, Blue is over-worked … Duncan must do something before there’s a full-scale rebellion!



And finally, Natasha from our head office has reviewed one of her childhood favourites…

The Magic Far Away Tree – Enid Blyton

I loved all books by Enid Blyton as a child, reading them from cover to cover as soon as I could get my hands on them. I imagined myself as the lead character in any of her books I happened to be reading, and lived every adventure they were embarking on.

But The Magic Faraway Tree was by far my favourite!

I remember the excitement of starting each chapter and wondering what magical land Joe, Bessie, Frannie and Rick would stumble upon at the top of The Faraway Tree. What would Moonface and Saucepan Man be up to?

A book full of wonderful adventures perfect for bedtime stories! I might just pull my old copy out again.
