The Very Hungry Hedgehog

The Very Hungry Hedgehog

Author: Rosie Wellesley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/04/2018

Isaac the Hedgehog has had a long winter sleep. He's just woken up and is having a bad hair day (well, you try looking perfect when you've been asleep for four months!). He's also very hungry and in search of food. But every time he finds something to eat another creature gets there first. And when hedgehog himself becomes the target of a bigger animal's appetite, will his spikes save him from becoming someone else's breakfast? Rosie Wellesley's beautiful illustrations capture all the joy and bounty of spring, its bright colours, optimism and hope.

The Itchy-saurus The dino with an itch that can't be scratched

Author: Rosie Wellesley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/02/2018

Something is stirring in the dinosaur jungle - it's Itchy-saurus. His itchy, scratchy skin is making him bad-tempered. Can Doc Bill (the Platypus) help Itchy to calm down - perhaps with some lovely soothing cream? Rosie Wellesley's latest book is a tale packed with jokes and fun (and dinosaurs), but it also addresses a serious issue. Although we do not know if dinosaurs had eczema, 20% of children do, and this book is perfect for reassuring them that they are not alone.

They are so sleepy and struggling to keep their eyes open! Isaac tries to call on everyone he knows, but the only person who will play with him is an invisible friend. Will the games with his friend be enough to tire him out for a long, long sleep? From the author of The Very Helpful Hedgehog.

The Very Helpful Hedgehog

The Very Helpful Hedgehog

Author: Rosie Wellesley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/04/2012

Isaac is a hedgehog who has only ever been alone - and that is the way he likes it. One day an apple falls from a tree and sticks onto the spines on his back. He wiggles and jiggles, but he cannot get it off. As he struggles to remove the apple, help comes in the unexpected form of a donkey who cannot reach the apples which fall outside of his paddock. Isaac learns that it is better to have a friend and to be helpful than to be on your own all of the time.
