September Publication Party!

We have so many incredible books publishing today 
so we thought we'd round up a list of our newbies. 

The Little Adventurers: Leafy the Pet Leaf, Elissa Elwick & Phillip Ardagh

If you're brave, helpful, honest, good to your planet and kind to animals (even ones that don't do much... like boring worms) then you, too, can be a LITTLE ADVENTURER.

King Baby, Kate Beaton

I am King Baby! You have been waiting for me. 
I will give you many blessings, for King Baby is generous...

Meltdown, Jill Murphy

From the creator of the Large Family series comes another perfectly observed family comedy about a baby bunny rabbit and her mum on the supermarket shop ... a trip which doesn't go quite to plan!

A Child of Books, Oliver Jeffers & Sam Winston

A beautiful, poignant and timely manifesto for the myriad rewards 
of reading and sharing the enjoyment of stories. 

Mango and Bambang Tiny Tapir Trouble, Polly Faber, Clara Vulliamy

Mango and Bambang's adventures continue in the third book of 
this charming illustrated series about a little girl and a tapir. 

 "books for book-lovers".

The ethos behind the imprint is engaging design, high-quality illustration and superior production values. It will feature books by current Walker authors and illustrators as well as debut books and artists in translation. 

We're kicking off our launch month with two glorious titles.

The Singing Bones, Shaun Tan 

Shaun Tan fans get to see his extraordinary talent applied to sculpture in this award-winning, lavishly presented collection of art based on fairy tales told by the Brothers' Grimm.

Animals, Ingela P Arrhenius

 Time Now to Dream, Timothy Knapman, Helen Oxenbury 

From Helen Oxenbury, the illustrator of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, 
and Timothy Knapman, the author of Soon, comes the story of a 
brother and sister, and their adventure in the woods. 

Owl Bat Bat Owl, Mary-Louise Fitzpatrick

From award-winning author and illustrator, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, 
comes a stunning wordless picture book that celebrates family, 
friendship and the power of togetherness. Mummy Owl and her
 three little owls live happily on their spacious branch.

Penguin Problems, Lane Smith, Jory John
Little Penguin has problems: his beak is cold;

 there’s snow everywhere; the water smells salty; 

he waddles; he looks the same as everybody else. 
No – it’s not easy being a penguin!

Du Iz Tak, Carson Ellis

In her follow-up to the internationally acclaimed Home
Carson Ellis invites readers to imagine the dramatic possibilities
 to be found in the natural world ... even the humblest back garden!

We Found a Hat, Jon Klassen

Hold on to your hats! From the Kate Greenaway-winning 
creator of I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat comes 
the much-anticipated conclusion to the celebrated Hat trilogy.
