Megumi has only one wish. For the bear to come back. Megumi and the Bear is a heartwarming story about friendship. Written by Irma Gold and illustrated by Craig Phillips, Megumi and the Bear is for children aged 3+.

It’s the first day of school and all the children have a special backpack, except one – she has a terrible suitcase. A story about how imagination can make magic out of anything. The Terrible Suitcase by Emma Allen, illustrated by Freya Blackwood is suitable for children aged 4+.

Max is looking forward to his first ever sleepover at Grandpa’s house. Max snuggles into his sleeping bag with his Ted and his torch but is woken up by a terrible noise. As he hunts around the house for the monster he sees all sorts of strange shapes until finally he comes face to face with the monster, his snoring Grandpa. A light-hearted story which emphasises the great relationships children can have with their grandparents. Max Meets a Monster by Tracey Hawkins and illustrated by Chantal Stewart is suitable for children aged 3+.
