This is NOT a Book! | 9781925820508 | HB
In this action-packed picture book, our main character is convinced they’re not in a book. After all, if this was a book there’d be pages to turn and problems to solve. But hold on, we’ve turned the page … and why are those pirates stealing that treasure? The perfect introduction to storytelling, This is NOT a Book! is metafiction made fun!

The Art Garden | 9781925335590 | HB
Sadie wants to be an artist more than anything. But she can’t paint like her best friend, Tom. Join Sadie and Tom as they explore the garden and discover that there’s more than one way of creating a work of art.

Full of beautiful watercolour illustrations, this is an encouraging story about friendship and finding your creative flair.

What Could It Be? | 9781925335026 | HB
This concept book is all about unleashing creativity!

Up to Something | 9781925335705 | HB
Up to Something is a beautiful exploration of the father–son relationship, the importance of creativity and the satisfaction to be gained from making things ourselves.

Grace and Katie | 9781925335545 | HB
Grace and Katie are twins. Grace loves everything to be organised and neat, while Katie loves everything to be bold and messy.

An imaginative story of individuality, sisterhood, creativity and appreciating each other’s strengths.

The Leaky Story | 9781925335392 | HB
A book sits abandoned on a living room shelf. While the Blossburn family gets on with other things, the book aches to be read. Slowly it starts to swell, then leak!

Arabella and the Magic Pencil | 9781925820010 | HB

Arabella and the Magic Pencil will appeal to any child with a new sibling and those with changing family dynamics.

Ollie’s Treasure | 9781925335422 | HB
Ollie’s Treasure is tale of mindfulness for young, developing minds. Ollie’s grandma sends him a treasure map that promises to lead him to ‘something that will make him happy always’. Of course, Ollie thinks this ‘something’ will be a toy of some sort, but he gets both a rude shock and a big surprise when his treasure turns out to be him!

The Incurable Imagination | 9781925335972 | HB – free bonus title!
Audrey has the worst case of ‘imaginitis’ her teachers have ever seen! While other children paint their families, Audrey paints an ogre who drinks tea. What’s worse, her condition is contagious and soon the other kids at school start showing symptoms! But perhaps imagination isn’t such a bad disease after all if it makes learning lots more fun.
