One Hundred Sausages

Author: Yuval Zommer Illustrator: Yuval Zommer Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/10/2016

Scruff just can't resist sausages . . . salami, pepperoni, chorizo . . . he simply loves them all. But gate-crashing barbecues and hanging around outside the local butcher's shop is not making him the most popular dog in own. Then one day, disaster strikes! There's a break-in at the butcher's - and ALL THE SAUSAGES are stolen! Neither the policeman, nor the mayor, nor the butcher can trace the sausage thieves. There's only one thing for it; Scruff will have to sniff them out! After a lot of twists and turns, Scruff's sniffing talents and bravery win the day - and Scruff and his chums are rewarded with a slap-up meal at a posh restaurant. Guess what's on the menu - SAUSAGES! Yuvall's debut picture book, The Big Blue Thing on the Hill, published by Templar in 2014, was nominated for the 'Heart of Hawick' Children's Book Award 2015, in the best new picture book category, as well as for the 'Read It Again!' Cambridgeshire Children's Book Award 2015, for best debut by an author/illustrator.

The Big Book of Bugs

The Big Book of Bugs

Author: Yuval Zommer Format: Hardback Release Date: 21/03/2016

Introductory spreads explain that bugs live nearly everywhere on Earth and give tips on how to become a young bug spotter. The book is divided into key groups of bugs, including beetles, moths, butterflies, bees, snails, crickets, grasshoppers, worms and spiders, all illustrated with scenic compositions. Some spreads approach the world of bugs thematically, such as bugs that come out at night, baby creepy-crawlies and life cycles, how bugs hide and show off and how some bugs love to live in your home. The text is chatty, funny and full of amazing facts.
