Longlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books. September 2015 Debut of the Month A quest is a quest is a quest, even if the heroes are brightly coloured and quite ridiculously cute picturebook characters, in this case a unicorn called Blossom, a fairy called Twinkle, a gnome called Herbert, a faun called Hoofies (likes: making merry; dislikes: clothes), and a mushroom called Trevor! When the magical Crystals of Life are stolen from the Super Happy Magical Forest, it’s up to this band of friends to go after them, braving penguins, ghosts and even wasps on their journey. It’s all great fun with jokes on every page for children and adults alike and, despite the silliness, there’s a proper story about friendship and bravery, with an unexpected twist in the tail too. George R Martin eat your heart out! ~ Andrea Reece


Super Happy Magic Forest by Matty Long

Tolkien for toddlers! Super Happy Magic Forest is the hilarious story of five brave heroes - a fairy, a unicorn, a faun, a gnome, and a mushroom - who must go on an epic quest to reclaim the Mystical Crystals of Life and save their home. From happy bunnies to warrior penguins, picnic-ruining bees to biscuit-loving goblins there's so much to see and talk about on every page of this brilliant adventure.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
