Tiny and Teeny

Author: Chris Judge Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/09/2019

Welcome to Pocket Town, the teeniest, tiniest town around... Deep down, in between the blades of grass, lives Tiny. Can you see her? Keep looking ... closer still ... squint a bit ... yes, there she is! Tiny keeps very busy in the buzzing place of Glengadget. Every day of the week, she has a different neighbour to meet - she does some gardening for Mandy Small, she reads to Bitsy McGee and she gives Minkin a hand with her lively twins. But when disaster strikes (in the shape of a falling leaf), Tiny finds her teeny-tiny world turned upside down... Children will fall in love with the adorable Tiny and her immersive miniature world in this heart-warming, original story of community spirit and kindness.

The Baby Beast

The Baby Beast

Author: Chris Judge Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/07/2019

When an egg arrives on his doorstep, Beast doesn't quite know what to do: feed it? Take it for a nice long walk? Drop it? Doctor Yoko tells him he must keep it warm and just wait, but exactly what he's waiting for is a mystery to the Beast... Side-splitting humour from award-winning Chris Judge: adults will recognise (some of) Beast's first-time child-care mistakes, while children laugh out loud. This is the fourth in the award-winning Beast series, following The Lonely Beast, The Brave Beast and The Snow Beast. Praise for The Lonely Beast: 'Judge tells a familiar tale but illustrates it with uncommon style and verve.' New York Times
