Bad Panda

A brand-new series about a panda who’s fed up of being labelled as cute, from the duo that brought you Dave Pigeon. A guaranteed laugh on every page!

Are you sick of being utterly adorable?
Tired of being cuddled and hugged?
Fed up of having your head confused for your bottom because you just so happen to be SOOOOPER-DOOOOOPER fluffy?

Lin: If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you’re in the right book.

Everyone thinks that Lin is the cutest panda in the world. So much so that they ship her off to the local zoo, away from her beloved brother, to be ogled at by the masses. But Lin HATES being cute, and now she will do everything in her power to prove that she’s the baddest, meanest, most un-cute animal in the zoo…

Laugh-yourself-out-of-bed hilarious, the first in a new series from the creators of DAVE PIGEON.

Indiana Bones

Indiana Bones and his young friend Aisha are off to solve the greatest mysteries the world has ever known in this hilarious new series!

Indiana Bones is a shaggy dog with a difference. He’s got superpowers and can sniff out criminals and – with his young friend and owner Aisha – solve mysteries that would flummox the world’s more expert detectives!

In their first case, they are on the trail of treasure hidden centuries ago by a legendary knight known as The Lonely Avenger, an adventure which takes them all the way to Egypt and the pyramids.

A hugely inventive new series from one of the funniest author/illustrator teams in the business.

Jack is very excited when he learns that this year’s school trip is a visit to the seaside to hunt for fossils. And even better – there’s going to be a prize for the best find, which is he desperate to win!

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!

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!
