Sasha and the Wolf

A brilliant bind-up of the rediscovered classics about Sasha and Ferdy the wolf and their adventures.

Long ago and far away, on the great snow-covered steppe of Russia . . .

Sasha has always been taught that wolves are dangerous, but when he finds himself lost in the snow with Ferdy, a wolfcub, he discovers they are not so different. But how can he persuade his village that the wolves can be their friends?

Sasha is excited about the railway coming to their village. But Ferdy is afraid that it will bring new people who do not know that the wolves and humans have learnt to live together. With winter coming, how will Ferdy’s pack survive if they have to hide away?

Gaia Bordicchia’s gorgeous illustrations whisk readers away to a Russian winter long long ago . . .

The Book Cat

This is a classic wartime tale of a (real!) cat who made his home at the Faber offices and decided he’d never leave.

‘This time we need to get you – get all of the kittens, safe out of London,’ said Morgan decisively . . . ‘To have a chance for a better life, well, let’s just say, I’ve got an idea.’

Morgan is a young orphan who lives off scavenging – until he finds a cosy home at a famous London publishing house. Over time he learns a trade – and soon becomes the very best book cat in the business. And then the Blitz begins. Morgan finds himself training up twenty odd kittens to be book cats, and then there is the small matter of secretly evacuating them out of London. Happily, Morgan has a plan.

Set in war-torn London, charmingly illustrated, and full of heart and verve.

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.
