This cat adventures from the much-loved Mog and The Tiger Who Came to Tea with the snow-white Katinka and her uncommon cock will delight the little ones with its smooth, golden-coloured homeliness. Everybody shines in the block-like, softly red-hot pictures, from humans to domestic animals to clumsy Christmas decorations; at the end of the book it will also be the reader.
Costas short-listee Rundell's first trip into the younger world is a funny tale of a lonesome young man, four roguish woodcarvings and a desire for an improbable badge, perfect with Sutton' s complicated, lavish illustration. In the midst of a wealth of art-oriented children's non-fiction books, Thurlby's alphabetic leader - an introductory book to the National Gallery and many of the artist, technique and movement - is distinguished by unmystifying excitement, daring, cheerful designs and an inspirational feeling for possibilities.
Nicely arranged and clearly illustrative, this delicious book contextualizes extracts from Tchaikovsky's ballett soundtrack in a sugar-sweet re-telling of the film. With a preface by Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Tove Jansson's illustrious work, Ardagh's powerful, funny, carefully written guidebook to the Moomins, their boyfriends, their philosophy and habitat - and the lives of their mystical creators - provides hour-long rummaging for young and old.
During her whole lifetime Amihan has been living on the Isle of Culion, where many of us have got the disease - also the mom of Amihan. But it is a place of pleasure until hard power comes down, separates the family and uproots them. An outstanding first, this US novel is the Black Live's Matter-inspired tale of Starr Carter, whose girlfriend Khalil is killed by a policeman as she watchs-and whose shared existence gets out of balance.
Founded in outer space, Leo lived his whole lifetime on the Moon 2 spacestation with the astronauts Libra and Orion. In Leo's abridged, innuendo-rich dictation, this is an exceptional sci-fi, as varied and humanitarian as Iain M Banks in his best form.
