Enter the magical world of Swankypants the cat as we meet a young owl called Hooty. Hooty is hungry and must leave the safety of his branch for the very first time to catch his dinner. But he's afraid of heights. How will Swankypants and his friend Chatterbox help Hooty take his first flight? Share Hooty's plight in this delightful tale as he tries to overcome his fears and discovers how things seem much less scary when you have friends to help you out. A wipeable board book, ideal for small hands, with beautiful illustrations throughout which are sure to delight young children and adults alike. More tales of Swankypants and his friends are promised in the form of a collectable series, a series I feel sure will encourage a love of books from a very early age.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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.
