Author: T. How the Jellicle Cats celebrate at the Jellicle Ball when the Jellicle Moon comes out is delightfully demonstrated in his exuberant line illustrations. The Human Lady who feeds them has gone on holiday leaving them easy prey to the devious Reginald Grimster, a man with an irrational hatred of pigeons dating back to his schooldays a pigeon pooed on him. Soon Skipper is a prisoner, along with lots of other pigeons, as Grimster gets ready to turn them into nuggets.
Narrated by Dave, with frequent interjections by Skipper, this is totally nutty, totally original and a hoot from start to finish. Illustrations sometimes fill whole pages, elsewhere spreads are divided into eye-catching strips. Endnotes on each image provide readers with additional information. A book that brilliantly demonstrates the rich variety of life on earth as well as its interconnection. I could detail the meticulous planning; the writing and re-writing of text that will never be read; the hours of researching and verifying the facts; the careful planning of colour balance and atmosphere; the sleepless nights putting paint to paper and the in-depth discussions of paper stocks, cover finishes and format variations.
Or I could just tell you why The premise is simple. A book that opens our eyes to the natural world around us and forces us to observe it and ask questions. It is the kind of book I hope my son will enjoy. I want him to be aware of the world outside his window, to ask questions about it, to engage with it, and to feel.
I hope you do too. Thomas Truong Publisher, Degrees. This book points out just how wrong they are, countering each anti-book statement page by page in lively, funny text and illustrations. A book to read, and a book to share. Mairi Kidd told The Bookseller. Barrington Stoke worked with the authors and illustrators to ensure that the books are suitable for dyslexic readers and thereby helping more families grow a love of reading.
On the Picture Squirrels Author: Dr. The story of two children the two from the classic One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish in fact sent to choose a pet from the pet shop it has lots of charm and looks wonderful. Adult readers will be interested in the extra material included which contains information on Theodor Seuss Geisel he was a self-appointed Dr and the background to his books. Author: Betty G. These sweet and easy to read little stories have much to recommend them: Humphrey is a real character and there are little moral messages slipped in with the animal fun. Tom Nicholl has a relaxed but lively writing style that makes this very readable, and very funny too.
If misbehaving dragons light your fire, try the equally funny Dragonsitter series by Josh Lacey. Talk about livening things up! Pan the Mini-Dragon likes chatting a lot , setting fire to his own farts and snacking hungrily on dirty laundry, and it is impossible to know what he is plotting at any given time.

Young readers will adore this interactive adventure story.

Even Delia wants to come. I can always ignore her. In this episode, Isadora is excited to be going to a human fair, but when she and her family arrive, they find the rides are looking very battered and forlorn. A few touches of magic turns the fair into something very special indeed, but for Isadora the best fun of all is simply spending happy times with her family and friends. The illustrations are full of charm and the short chapters makes this truly accessible to newly independent readers.
A message from the author about her inspiration for the character of Isadora Moon : There is actually quite a bit of history behind Isadora Moon. About ten years ago, on my art foundation course, I created a character called Victoria Stitch and wrote and illustrated a picture book about her. She was a grown up, naughty, slightly gothic, fairy type character and she had a Pink Rabbit who she always dragged around with her. Victoria Stitch became like my alter ego and I always kept her close to me and worked on her in my spare time.
Only From Audible
Over the years she evolved. She started with pink hair and then she turned even more gothic looking with black, messy hair and with bat wings instead of fairy wings.
As my style of illustration changed, she changed too. She is extremely special to me. So Isadora Moon was born! I also gave Isadora Moon fangs unlike Victoria Stitch as when I started to think about the backstory for her why she has batwings, what species is she etc… it made sense that her mum was a fairy and her dad was a vampire. This is why Isadora Moon is so special to me — because she was born out of a real passion project of mine.
I absolutely adore her. July Book of the Month Bobbie is thrilled that a golden eagle has settled in the forest near her family's farm.

Bobbie is determined to save the eagle but is it worth the risk?
A stunning new wildlife adventure from multi-award-winning author Gill Lewis. This new book, part of the Prehistoric Beasts Uncovered series, brings us hot off the press scientific information on Triceratops, one of the most recognisable of all the dinosaurs. The discovery of a Triceratops tooth in proved that the animals lived in Appalachia, now the eastern part of the USA, far outside the area they were thought to inhabit. Now scientists can look for Triceratops fossils in whole new areas, and new discoveries will certainly be made. Other pages show how modern technology has revealed new information about Triceratops eating habits, but that scientists learned lots too by recreating battles between Triceratops using plastic models.
Full colour throughout and with a useful glossary, this is an inspiring information book. It was also fascinating to work with the artists, from around the world, who created the life-like 3D artworks of the animals featured in the series. Every year new fossil discoveries are made, or advancements in technology allow us to gather more evidence from bones that were dug from the ground decades ago. This means the books are just jam-packed with the latest information on these incredible animals.
From seeing T. A brilliantly funny odd couples comedy from one of our very funniest authors for children. The Primms and the Weirds are totally different: fish-eating, hedge-trimming, neighbourhood-watching, the Primms are as strait-laced as they come, while the Weirds are just, well, weird!
Kids' Audiobook Road Trip Favorites | ziwopycaxa.tk
Despite their differences, when the Weirds move in next door, Pinch Primm becomes friends with Ott Weird, and their adventures make wonderfully comic reading. There are three different stories, each is short, very funny and with a momentum that keeps the pages turning right until the end. In a Nutshell: Guffaws, giggles and gags aplenty By a curious twist of fate Daniel Kendal - the self-confessed NOT-brainiac - has been chosen to represent his school at the National Brainiac Championships.
An honour indeed and his headmaster Mr Biggend has high hopes of success, promising a party for the whole school hurray! There's just one problem Daniel doesn't have the skills. In a family of high-achievers the only thing Daniel wins at is being tall. He's exceptionally tall but that really isn't going to help him here.
Through fair means or foul, Daniel realises he must somehow win the competition to avoid national humiliation - and the wrath of the rest of the school! With short chapters and lots of fun cartoon illustrations this is a great choice for the more reluctant reader. But she still feels a bit homesick. When the school decides to enter a film-making competition set by the local council, Dani is in her element - back at home she often makes videos with her friend Arch.
Amongst the fun and crazy adventures, there are subtle messages about being yourself, and developing confidence. A great take on the boarding school genre. Or are these problems just too big for Funfair Moon? Verbal and visual jokes about in this fantastical adventure. Tim and his family move to the country when his dad decides to become a farmer. Bankruptcy is looming when Tim persuades his dad to take in a pack of llamas. For various unlikely reasons, the llamas turn out to be footballing geniuses, the Ronaldos and Messis of the animal world, and are soon competing at a very high level.
Silly, and as satisfying as stories of unlikely champions always are, the book is also full of quality descriptions of the footballing action as Llama United progress up the league. And what a time they have, passing all the planets from Mercury to Pluto before returning home, navigating their way through an asteroid belt on the way. Each short chapter is full of information about the galaxy, and packed with illustrations by Tony Ross too. Lots to learn, and lots of fun to be had while publisher Barrington Stoke makes sure that this is a book that is particularly easy to read.
Here on Lovereading4kids we are constantly selecting new titles and refreshing our special dyslexia friendly category. Click here to view our current selection which is broken down by age range. Rover, star of The Giggler Treatment and others, is back for a new and equally hilarious dog-poo centred adventure. As ever, Rover needs to collect dog poo to keep the Gigglers well-supplied.
Probably not, but a camping trip certainly allows for lots of comic adventure. The jokes come thick and fast and mostly from the nether regions and the story is told as much through cartoon illustration as through the text making this a super accessible read for everyone. Danny Dingle does just that with it's all-singing, all-farting, larger-than-life characters and irreverent tone. It is a treat to work on a book that's so genuinely funny and full of personality, which can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. The book's universal appeal is something that is mentioned over and over in reviews, and it is one of the reasons it is so brilliant for engaging reluctant readers.
Danny's witty, imaginative and relentlessly optimistic personality is infectious: you can't help but love him despite his many flaws. Doing exactly what it says on the tin, this book is indeed packed with things for kids to do with science and the great news is that all of them are fun and generally easy to do, and that they can be created from craft materials or items that all of us will have readily to hand. Diagrams and colour photos make it more accessible and attractive to look at too. With activities that can be carried out indoors and outdoors, this will be great for the Easter and summer holidays.
British Science Week is 10—19 March - find out more at www. She wishes she could take Neil, her puffin, with her. In a nice touch we see that mum is feeling a bit sad about it too. Fortunately, the teacher sees a way to make things right. Children will understand exactly how Polly feels while guest appearances by Neil and Skittles the parrot add excitement and more humour. The short text, lively adventure and frequent illustrations make this just the thing for readers at the start of their own schooldays. Along with a bowl of fruit, six batteries and a wind-up meerkat.
Terrific fun. Author: Gareth P. Why, our pets. When Dung Guzzler beetles arrive from the former star Dun-Glowing, things look bad: these things thrive on rubbish, and as they get bigger will happily trample whole cities to produce more rubble. How will agent Biskit and his new partner Mitzy the cat stop them? Garth P Jones has a deservedly dedicated fan-base and they will love this new series. A fast-moving adventure ensues, a mix of daft but exciting action scenes, wisecracks, slapstick and some proper character development too.
Black and white illustrations by Tim Wesson add to the all-round appeal. All these things are put to good use to stop a wicked landowner, whose plans to turn the library into a carpark are actually cover for something even more despicable. This will be great fun for children who like stories overflowing with magic, and Kit and her friends are very appealing characters. They are as lively a pair of protagonists as you could hope to meet and there are twists, turns and surprises galore as the story unfolds.
Each chapter opens with a Komodo Jones comic front cover — someone should publish those stories too! Award-winning Michael Morpurgo weaves a charming and witty story around sport and history as they have come together in the recent twin triumphs of the City of Leicester with the discovery of the remains of King Richard III in a car park and Leicester City football club winning the Premier League.
The link between the two? A family of foxes! When Daddy Fox finds the ghost of the king and helps to release him from an unseemly grave he is granted one royal wish. What will it be? As a mad-keen footballing family the Foxes have one over-riding wish; that Leicester City can go top of the League. Can the King do it? You bet he can! Michael Foreman captures the spirit of this entertaining adventure perfectly. There are shades of Watership Down in the story of Shylo, the runt who embarks on a daring adventure, but it brings to mind Wind in the Willows too, in the depictions of the English countryside and the creation of eccentric yet believable animal characters.
Funny, surprising, original, it unfolds as smoothly as treacle dripping off a spoon, but much much faster.
Sideways Stories from Wayside School (Wayside School Series #1)
I did NONE of these things. Stay awake in lessons it helps. AVOID the class bully to stay out of trouble. Technically not a school issue - but still important. In 3 : invisible goodies — dastardly baddies — killer chickens poultry-geists! In a nutshell : noble kings — evil laughs — chocolate Good versus evil is given a very funny workout in this the first book in what should become a very popular series.
As kings go, Edwin is lovely, always distributing chocolate to his subjects. Andy Riley cleverly lampoons comic book conventions while simultaneously constructing an action story that will thoroughly satisfy their readers. Karen has made a name for herself with teachers, reading charities and librarians for producing fun and fast-paced stories that get the most reluctant of readers turning the pages. Walter Brown and the Magician's Hat is a magical story bursting with adventure and excitement.
Walter is woken on his 10th birthday by his cat Sixpence, and as he opens his presents he receives a rather special hat, with some rather special abilities. Black and grey illustrations bring the story to life, and Sixpence in particular looks very real and more than a little mischievous. Amusing, imaginative and entertaining, this story is a perfectly magical treat. This really keeps me on my toes well, fingertips I suppose… and the great news is that every one of my readers wins.
I also often get comments about how refreshing it is to have a book that can be read in a short space of time due to its manageable length. Many children who are not natural bookworms get a great sense of achievement from this — and those that read regularly find time to easily fit in my books alongside all the other distractions available to them. So I hope I am doing my small part to inspire and support a love of reading. In a Nutshell: silliness — disguises - dogs Jeremy Strong continues to set the standard in comic writing for children and his Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog series is a tour de force of silliness.
Trevor is determined not to let this happen and with his NOT-girlfriend Tina works out a clever plan. Meanwhile, someone is kidnapping dogs, the fancier, the better. The plot proceeds at the kind of speed even Streaker would be pushed to match and this is joyfully, inspiringly ludicrous. Fans will be more than satisfied. Superfairies is a sweet new series about four little fairies, in which the emphasis is very much on kindness and helping others. In this springtime story the fairies are working together to clean their home inside the cherry blossom tree, when they get a call that one of their animal friends needs help.
They climb into the fairycopter and fly to the rescue as always. Little Basil the bear cub has got into trouble in the river and things are scary until the fairies manage to help him out. With just the right amount of risk and reassurance, and a gentle message about the danger of playing near water, this will charm young readers. I also had a wonderful illustrated book about the tooth fairy that included, most importantly, instructions on how to ensure my tooth was not missed in exchange for some pocket money.
So when Curious Fox was introduced to Rose, Berry, Silk and Star, we knew we wanted to bring the Superfairies to the next generation of girls and boys! The Superfairies live in a cherry blossom tree in Peaseblossom Woods, alongside their animal chums. A celebration for the changing seasons and the beauty of nature is always round the corner, and with summer fairs, petal parades and winter feasts, their active social lives alone could keep their calendar full all year round.
But nature also brings challenges. The fairies are torn: how can they protect their friends and still respect Mother Nature? There are plenty of times, however, that the animals need no help at all to get themselves in sticky situations. Wonder, curiosity and refusing to back down from dares are the prime culprits in keeping the Superfairies on red alert. Nature and technology harmoniously mix to aid animal rescues. Each fairy has a special power: Berry uses her super eyesight to scout for missing animals and Silk spins super strong webs to make ladders or catch falling friends.
When they work together, they can solve any problem. This happy union is echoed by the author and illustrator, who are partners in crime and friends in real life. Join the Superfairies on their rescues with books 1 to 4 available now, and books 5 and 6 publishing in August this year. A classic Roald Dahl title, a most touching story of a boy and his very special father. Danny and his father live in a caravan parked right next to the garage where his father works. Danny father teaches him how to fix bits of car, reads him bedtime stories and introduces him to the wonders of nature.
One night, Danny discovers his father has a secret. He is a brilliant poacher and he is determined to outwit the local gamekeepers.
