Welcome to a day in the life of a friendly terrier. He just wants to go to the park with his friends to play ball, but his owner has other ideas…Complemented by stylish pen and ink drawings, this charming debut from up-and-coming illustrator Emily Rand is a warm and witty take on the toddler’s experience of having to wait for grownups when they’d rather be having fun.

In the Darkness of the Night takes the reader through the sounds that a young child hears whilst curled up in bed waiting to fall asleep.

 

From the familiar, reassuring noises of the family and the home including muffled voices and humming pipes. Next we move out into the garden, with the snuffling and screeching of foxes. And then suddenly what s that? Zoom! A car speeds by and a distant siren sounds.

 

Then the illustrations expand to the city beyond, as we see those who work throughout the night, such as cleaners or nurses. And finally, as the sun rises, the early morning sounds begin with the birdsong, clatter of dustbins and letterboxes as the city wakes up again.

 

Emily Rand takes us on a gentle journey through the night, looking at all the sounds and activity that happen whilst you re tucked up warm in your bed!

In this thrilling tour, led by two of the city’s best-dressed residents, a pearly grandma and her granddaughter, we make the acquaintance of the Gherkin, the Shard and the Eye, not to mention a whole host of other characters who make London the rich and diverse city that it is today. Expressing all of the energy, history and excitement that London has to offer, London Calls is both the perfect introduction to and memento of an unrivalled city.

Meet a troupe of circus performers who create sculptures from found objects and shapes. Using simple materials from around the home as well as their imaginations, this entertaining troupe reveal how much fun can be had bringing works of art to life.

She puts her coat on the hook in the hall, pours a glass of milk for herself in the kitchen and tries to reach the biscuit tin on the highest shelf in the pantry. But where is Grandma? Children will love exploring the rooms in Grandma s House, peering through its cut-out pages from one room to the next and journeying high up into the fold-out attic in search of Grandma.
