A new year brings with it brand new picture books! We've selected our top new picks for January and you can find out all about them here.

We're Going on a Bear Hunt 30th Anniversary Edition


Celebrate 30 wonderful years of We're Going on a Bear Hunt in this special anniversary edition of the much-loved family favourite. This new anniversary board book brings the story to life for a whole new generation of young readers. Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river, squelch through the mud and brave their way through the swirling, whirling snowstorm in search of a bear.



Tooth


Ouch! Baby’s mouth feels funny. Something is happening, and it’s not just that a puddle of drool keeps escaping. There it is – a new tooth! From discovering what’s good to bite (and what’s not) to mastering the art of the toothbrush, Baby’s dental adventure is sure to give little teething buddies something to chew on.



Beware of the Crocodile



A witty Nature Storybook about crocodiles. The main thing about crocodiles is they’re really scary – or at least the big ones are. They’ve got an awful lot of teeth and they’re not at all fussy about what they eat, as long as it’s got a bit of meat on it.  But you might be surprised to hear that there's more to crocodiles than just their appetites.....




Home in the Rain



Francie and her mum, who is expecting a baby girl, are driving home from Grandma’s in the heavy rain when they stop for a picnic. As the car steams up, Francie presses her little finger on the window, spelling out "Daddy" and "Mummy" and leaving one space free, ready and waiting for the name of her soon-to-be sister... A beautifully observed celebration of the way inspiration can, and often does happen in the most ordinary and unlikely of places.



Flat Cat


A wild, read-aloud celebration of breaking the rules, taking a chance, and having the most brilliant of adventures. Jimi the cat longs to explore the bright and bustling world outside the flat. Where will he go and who will he meet on those wild and exciting streets? Children and parents alike will rejoice in this funny, stylish and heart-warming celebration of freedom, adventure, friendship and love.





Animals with Tiny Cat


From the ever original and wonderfully playful Viviane Schwarz comes a laugh-out-loud, theatrical first animal board book for the very youngest of readers. Tiny Cat is playing dressing-up! She rolls up in a rug to become a snake – hiss! And with booties on her paws, she’s a horse – neigh! In fact, with oodles of imagination, Tiny Cat can be any animal she wants to be! 



Isle of You



Some days are harder to get through than others. Whenever you’re sad, or lonely, or angry, there’s one place you can always go: the Isle of You. Take a moment to shake off your worries, then set sail to a land where your dreams can come true. Soar on the back of an eagle, hunt for treasure, watch dancing polar bears on roller skates – anything you can imagine is yours...





Dreamland

Bedtime surroundings mingle with stunning dream imagery as a little girl drifts into peaceful slumber... From illustrator and Pixar designer Noah Klocek comes a breathtaking depiction of a half-asleep landscape sure to lure readers into a dreamland of their own.
