Your Local Children's Books for Autumn through Winter 2017
We've been busy this Summer putting together the best list of children's picture books for your Autumn and Winter in 2017. It's going to be a blast of three awesome kids lit publications.
1) Lucy & Mum's Shoes by Emily Child, illustr. by Warwick Kay
Our first 2017 kids book, out this April, is all about "loving the shoes you're in". Emily Child's beautiful story about a little girl called Lucy, who wants to grow up too fast, has been brought to life by the talented Warwick Kay.
Feeling brave one morning, Lucy sneaks into her mother’s cupboard and tries on her favourite pair of stilettos. An unusual and dreamlike day of high-heeled hope, happiness and hindrance follows, leaving Lucy a little less certain that she wants to feel grown-up after all…
Lucy invites children (and adults) to be a part of her unique and quirky soundscape. Infused with a surreal eccentricity, this story uncovers what it means to “love the shoes you’re in”.
2) Liebetland: A Colouring Book by Liebet Jooste
Liebetland, out this May, is a wacky world created by South African artist, Liebet. A place where strange creatures of all sizes and shapes live amongst wonderful plants and things in colourful landscapes.
Liebetland: A Colouring Book is Liebet Jooste's second colouring-in book for humans of any age, and a very grand entrance into her wild world of Liebetland where the most hilarious creatures hide.
3) Tina Tadpole: Witch in Training by David Bourke
Tina Tadpole: Witch in Training is David Bourke's first children's book, out this May.
Tina is a different kind of witch, especially being green and all. Going to school has always seen Tina being the odd one out, and she doesn't mind one bit. But, that means choosing her pet isn't quite so easy as her classmates find it. Which magical beast will Tina choose?
