Ruggles

Author: Anne Fine Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 08/07/2010

Ruggles likes visiting all his friends in the town - in a highly unauthorised fashion! Follow this soppy shaggy dog through all seasons, as he disappears from the garden to the wider world outside - Colditz style! He knows the dogcatcher really well, but he also knows all the children in the park. In the winter, though, the cosiness of the house could be just tempting enough.

The Christmas Mouse

The Christmas Mouse

Author: Toby Forward Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/09/2006

Ben is a wealthy mouse who is not interested in Christmas, or the gift that Tim, a poor mouse, brings him on Christmas Eve. That night, Ben cannot sleep and a stranger appears who takes him on a quest to find three people who agree with Ben that a candied plum is the best thing in the world. By morning, Ben, like Scrooge, has learnt the true meaning of Christmas and the value of friendship and he invites Tim to celebrate Christmas with him. Toby Forward's atmospheric tale is perfectly matched by Ruth Brown's gorgeous illustrations, to make this a classic Christmas gift book.

Toad

Toad

Toad is a slimy, ugly creature, but he's happy to go about catching flies, crunching bugs and generally oozing in and out of marshy, smelly bogs. He is short-sighted, however, and one day when searching for yet more food he stumbles into the jaws of a passing monster.
