For younger children
by Nick Sharratt, Pippa Goodhart
If you could go anywhere, where would you go? A city, the desert or outer space? What kind of home would you choose – a palace, an igloo or a mushroom? And when you got hungry, what would you eat? Cake? Ketchup? Crab?
This book puts children at the centre of their own story and could see them flying by hot air balloon into the jungle, wearing rabbit slippers – or becoming an elephant tamer who lives in a windmill. Will they ask a unicorn or a vampire to go with them on their adventures? They can choose!
Lively illustrations – and loads of reusable stickers to make up their own stories – will make this a firm favourite.

For older children
By Jeremy Strong
Love comics? Superheroes? Laughing your socks off? Then you’ll love this book! Cartoon Kid Casper has a best mate, Big Feet Pete, and together these superheroes are more than a match for the Vampire Twins! (Or so they’d like to think…)
With their special superpowers, they get one up on the bullies, are arrested by the elephant police (yup), make up the biggest excuses ever for not doing their homework, and help their mates win the cup for being the best class in the school.
Cartoon Kid tells the story so there are loads of illustrations and comic strips throughout, as well as some handy facts – so in case you have to work out if you’ve been bitten by a Black Widow spider or a Cardinal Beetle, spiders have eight legs and beetles have only six.
