Words are everywhere! In this fun and interactive story about the magic of words, you’ll meet ugly words, colourful words, and words that just need a friend. The imaginative illustrations show a young boy and girl playing with words; stretching them, squashing them, colouring them, and sewing them together to reflect their meaning. Engaging, entertaining and educational, this unique ‘language through adventure book’ will inspire young readers to appreciate the joy of making stories from words.


This is NOT a Book! 

SPECIFICATIONS: 9781925820508 | Hardback | 245 x 255mm / 9.5 x 10in | 32 Pages | Full Colour

In this fun-filled 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 … Oops! We’ve turned the page.

But that’s not proof this is a book. If it was a book, there’d be interesting settings and problems to solve. Hold on! Why is our lead character being chased by a lion? Why are pirates stealing treasure? And are those mermaids playing in a rock band?

This is NOT a Book! is the perfect introduction to how to tell a story.


The Leaky Story

SPECIFICATIONS: Hardback | 245 x 255 mm / 9½ x 10 inches | Colour | 32 Pages

A book sits abandoned on a living room shelf. While the Blossburn family happily gets on with other things like watching TV and playing video games, the book aches to be read. The longer it sits abandoned, the more it aches. At last the book can’t take it any longer. Slowly it starts to swell. Then it starts to leak!

At first it’s only a small trickle, but eventually the Blossburns can no longer ignore the octopus, crabs and other marine life that are swirling around their suburban home. And when pirates sail out of the book, the family must band together to reclaim their living room.

But alas, on this particular rainy day, the only unfamiliar book she can find is the one propping up the kitchen table. Dad won’t miss it, right?…
