Once I Laughed My Socks Off

Author: Steve Attewell
RRP: £4.99

This delightful children's poetry book contains a collection of fun and imaginative poems for fun and imaginative kids (and those adults that still behave like kids). Learn why you should tidy up after yourself, why midnight snacking is not such a good idea, and what to do if you laugh so hard that your socks come off! This book of funny children's poems contains a host of interesting stories and characters for your kids to enjoy. Each story more fun that the last. The poems are written to encourage reluctant young readers to find enjoyment in poetry, and the wonder of words. Amongst the stories you'll find Melvin the midnight-snacking, sneaking teddy bear who can't wait to get his hands on the rest of the jam. Two collared doves, Ebb and Flo, who narrowly escape a run-in with the cat and fall in love. My socks (which won't stop dancing around). And Desmond, your friendly, but slightly present-obsessed Christmas fairy.

A Great Big Cuddle

Author: Michael Rosen
RRP: £14.99

Two of the biggest names in children’s publishing, Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell, come together in a new poetry collection. The poems in A Great Big Cuddle fizz off the page with sound and rhythm, energy and laughter, as Rosen captures in the most remarkable way what it means to be very, very young. A child’s world with all its details and feelings – toys and games, animals and made-up creatures, likes and dislikes – is vividly conjured up in the most memorable, playful language, and Chris Riddell has produced some his most extraordinary pictures ever to bring this world to life. It's a book that will be enjoyed by the oldest grown-up and the youngest child – and a future classic.
