Some Dinosaurs are Small by Charlotte Voake 

Some dinosaurs are small, and some dinosaurs are BIG. Some dinosaurs have tiny teeth for munching leaves, and some dinosaurs have POINTY teeth for munching … OTHER dinosaurs! UH-OH.

Would You Like a Banana? By Yasmeen Ismail 

Gorilla is hungry but there is absolutely no way he’s going to eat a banana. Not even a teeny taste. Not with some bread or standing on his head. Even if you eat one too, which is something you might do. This brilliant and hilarious picture book from award-winning illustrator Yasmeen Ismail will have everyone laughing at this all-too familiar family situation!

Animals with Tiny Cat by Viviane Schwarz 

Tiny Cat is playing dress-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! But does Tiny Cat have what it takes to be a fearless lion? Find out in this inventive picture book with an abundance of visual humour! 

Bear Moves by Ben Bailey Smith 

With funny wordplay and bold imagery, actor Ben Bailey Smith and artist Sav Akyuz have created a Bear to remember. If there's one thing Bear knows, it's how to move. And when the music starts up, Bear just can't help grooving to the beat – spinning round, belly dancing and even doing the foxtrot. This infectiously rhythmic and hilariously funny sequel to I Am Bear will keep readers in stitches from start to finish.

Available to buy at all good bookshops!

  2. My little brother love this book "Bear Moves" it is actually fun by the way and I'm glad to found it on Logo Design Service in UK page where they show hot to design a book like this. anyways In BEAR MOVES, a purple bear named Bear, gets his groove on as he shows the reader all kinds of different dance moves. The book has a lot of fun wordplay with various dances and moves. For instance, when doing the fox trot Bear actually is doing the fox trot with a fox. With the witty wordplay, the book can be fun for both adults and children.
