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.

happy dog
Kids will love the funky, colourful animals and funny stories about belching sharks, dancing hippos, knitting gorillas and drumming crickets whilst parents will appreciate the sophistication, quirkiness and philosophical content.

World of Happy delivers something emotionally rich and complex, while being easily accessible to children. Parents and children may well recognise the iconic imagery and storylines from the CBBC as the books started life there as thirteen two minute films and continue to be regularly repeated on CBBC and BBC1.
