Trouble on Planet Christmas

There’s trouble on the planet of Yule-1, the real home of Father Christmas.

The Trubshaw family are flown back from Earth to help out! 

Once again Jake and Sadie are transported to a place where elves and reindeer are their friends and everything is about getting ready for Christmas, the best holiday of the year. 

Hysterically funny, wonderfully bonkers, it’s Christmas like you’ve never seen it before. 

With knock-out illustrations throughout from Super Star, Neal Layton.

Squishy McFluff: On with the Show

‘In a change to our scheduled
programme tonight,
I proudly present,
for your joy and delight . . .’
(in the glare of the bulbs, Ava tipped her tall hat)
‘AMAZING AVA! AAAAAAND . . .
HER INVISIBLE CAT!’

Ava and Squishy are going to see the circus, but when one of the acts doesn’t turn up they must perform in his place!

Another joyful, hilarious, instant classic of a tale for five year olds and upwards, stunningly illustrated by Ella Okstad.

The Great Reindeer Disaster

Jingle bells, Jingle bells, smelly poo and bum!
You can wait for Christmas but it’s never going to come!

When a miniature reindeer named Percy falls down the chimney of the Trubshaws’ holiday cottage, the last thing they expect is to be whisked away to the distant planet of Yule-1 – the REAL home of Father Christmas, the elves, and his intrepid reindeer delivery teams. And what an amazing place it is – nobody minds being stuck there until the computer system has been mended.

But the festive season is in danger! One rogue reindeer has teamed up with the evil Krampus to sabotage everything. Unless Percy and his new friends can track them down, there will be no Christmas this year – or EVER AGAIN!

Illustrated in black and white by Neal Layton, this is destined to become a holiday favourite.

Hayley the Hairy Horse

Hayley the Horse is a beauty!
Her sleek tail was glossy, her black mane perfection.
Her coat shone so bright you could see your reflection.

And when she gets a haircut . . . she is proud to see her locks used to make fine paintbrushes and bows for violins.
But when the famous violinist La Rue comes to town and spots Hayley, he hatches a plan to steal her whole tail.
So Hayley has to be strong – this horse couldn’t fail.
There was no way on earth he was taking her tail!
She is going to put on a performance that the Queen will never forget!

Poppy the Police Horse

Poppy was fit, strong and healthy – her parent’s delight.
But for reasons unknown she was born without sight.

But lucky for you lot, she had an amazing sense of smell. So she’s recruited by the police force to solve the toughest crimes by nose . . .

Colin the Cart Horse

Colin was a cart horse,
Hay his favourite treat,
It was ever so soft and incredibly sweet,
But the day he branched out and broadened his diet . . .
Why, who could have guessed it would trigger a riot?

Gavin Puckett, Welsh comic extraordinaire, brings us another wonderful tale of rhyming fun and nonsense, in the very best tradition of Edward Lear and Hilaire Belloc.

Hendrix the Rocking Horse

An ordinary horse with a very ordinary and really quite boring little life . . . until a rock band called The Tumbling Pebbles come to town.

As the music pounds across the hills, Hendrix discovers he has an ear for music! And then he comes across the band’s guitar – it flies out the window of the van as the musicians leave the sleepy village – and Hendrix knows there is no looking back. He decides to put on a concert of his own. He ties a pair of pants round his head. Socks round his wrists.

He is Hendrix the Rocking Horse!

Murray the Race Horse

Murray the horse dreams of winning big races just like the rest of his family but he has one problem – he’s just not that fast! When horse Ned Plumb twists his ankle at the start line, his jockey spots Murray in the crowd and says, ‘Fancy a race?’ Murray finally gets his chance to shine and beat the neigh-sayers with a rather unusual race technique . . .

Written in winning verse, the accessible, bonkers writing in Murray the Horse will charm boys and girls age 7-11 (and horse-lovers of all ages), is complemented by Tor Freeman’s hilarious illustrations, and has a great message about believing in yourself and following your dreams.

Tamworth Pig Stories

Features two classic tales about Tamworth, the kind-hearted and very wise pig with a flair for publicity, and his human friends, Thomas and Blossom – The Prime of Tamworth Pig and Tamworth Pig Saves the Trees. In these tales Tamworth, Thomas and Blossom campaign to ‘Save The Trees’ and ‘Grow More Grub and Eat Less Meat’.

Carolyn Dinan’s classic interior illustrations complement these exciting adventures.

Piggy Hero

Piggy Handsome is a very confident guinea pig with a hugely inflated ego – he hails from a long line of very famous guinea pigs. But sadly Handsome STILL hasn’t achieved world renown.

Well, now he has a new plan to get his name on the telly – he’ll be someone’s hero! When pushing Jeff Budgie off a roof and ‘saving’ him fails spectacularly, Handsome is at his wits’ end. Little does he know, however, that the dastardly Dixons have escaped prison and are seeking revenge for their capture. What’s more, Dan and Dolly’s ghastly greed has led them to kidnapping, and now someone really DOES need saving! Can Piggy Handsome save the day for real? And will it earn him the fame he so desperately desires?
