Not an Alphabet Book: The Case of the Missing Cake

Not an Alphabet Book: The Case of the Missing Cake

Author: Eoin McLaughlin Illustrator: Marc Boutavant Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/2021

A graphic, bright, imaginative alphabet book, with a smart and laugh-out-loud whodunit twist. This was meant to be a simple alphabet book but something has happened. Something horrible. The most terrible crime! The world's most completely delicious, tongue-jinglingly, chocolaty cake has been ... STOLEN! As Bear travels from A to Z, visiting all sorts of characters, objects and extraordinary places along the way, can YOU help him search for the culprit? But, wait! Are those crumbs on Bear's page? And are those Bear-shaped pawprints next to the empty cake stand? It seems our narrator might not be as reliable as we first thought...

The Hug

The Hug

Author: Eoin McLaughlin Illustrator: Polly Dunbar Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/12/2020

A beautiful, heartwarming picture book with all the universal appeal of Guess How Much I Love You. Hedgehog was feeling sad. As sad as a hedgehog can feel. So sad only one thing could help . . . Tortoise was feeling sad. As sad as a tortoise can feel. So sad only one thing could help . . . In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too bony. And that's when they find each other! 'Feels like being enveloped in your very own hug.' Kirkus 'A smashing story time tale.' Books for Keeps 'It's utterly lovely. It makes her face light up every time she hears it.' The Guardian Best Books of 2019

While We Can't Hug

While We Can't Hug

Author: Eoin McLaughlin Illustrator: Polly Dunbar Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/08/2020

The bestselling and heart-warming picture book that shows us ways to be affectionate while social distancing, from the team behind The Hug. Hedgehog and Tortoise were the best of friends. They wanted to give each other a great, big hug. But they weren't allowed to touch. Don't worry, said Owl. There are lots of ways to show someone you love them. So the two friends wave to each other, blow kisses, sing songs, dance around and write letters. And even though they can't hug and they can't touch, they both know that they are loved. A gorgeous, uplifting, inspiring picture book that makes social distancing fun!
