Our two middle grade novels for 8-12 year olds this month were about the special relationship between a child and an animal. Storm Horse, about a boy who saves a horse after a shipwreck and One Dog and His Boy, about a boy who will do anything to keep his dog.
We have two wonderfully illustrated picture books for our readers this month. Epossumondas, an old favourite finally published in paperback and Happy Dreamer, a new book from genius Peter H. Reynolds.
Tigers, bears and bunnies oh my, are just some of the adorable creatures in this month’s baby books box.One Happy Tiger by Catherine Rayner from Edinburgh, Scotland. The Daily Telegraph says that Catherine “has the marvellous gift for capturing the souls of animals in a few, rich washes of colour.”
