Luna loves library day: that’s the day she spends with her dad. Exploring the shelves they find magic, mystery and even start to mend their own history. An inspiring story from one of the UK’s greatest up-and-coming poets for children, captured in all its flights of fancy by newcomer Fiona Lumbers.

A heart-warming and funny tale about the different kinds of love, and how no matter how much love you give you can never run out. 

You can’t measure love in a bucket or cup. You don’t have to worry you’ll use it all up.
Because love’s not a game where you have to keep score. Whenever you give some, you’ll always have more.
When you’ve run out of everything else you’ll still find . . .
You can never run out of love.

A moving, lyrical picture book about a young girl’s love for her granddad and how she copes when he dies, written by poet and playwright Joseph Coelho.

 

This beautifully illustrated, powerful and ultimately uplifting text is the ideal way to introduce children to the concept of death and dying, particularly children who have lost a grandparent.

High up on the Mountain of Gems lives the Simorgh, a wise phoenix whose flapping wings disperse the seeds of life across the world.

A mythical tale of family, forgiveness and what it means to be truly wise, the book includes an original Iranian musical composition to stream online using the QR code in the book.
