ANIMALIA by Graeme Base


Animalia is a book like no other. Abounding with fanciful, gorgeously detailed art, it is an alphabet book, a guessing game, and a virtual feast for the eyes.

Each page features one letter and images related to that letter -- as well as a hidden picture of Graeme Base as a child! Animalia will entrance any child who enters its fantastical world.










The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers 


Poor Duncan just wants to colour in. But when he opens his box of crayons, he only finds letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!

Blue needs a break from colouring in all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.

The battle lines have been drawn. What is Duncan to do?








Journey by Aaron Becker


Follow a girl on an elaborate flight of fancy in a wondrously illustrated, wordless picture book about self-determination and unexpected friendship.

A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound.









The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle


A caterpillar who eats his way through a wide variety of foodstuffs before pupating and emerging as a butterfly.










The Wheels on the Bus by Annie Kubler


Bouncy illustrations, innovative die cutting and popular rhymes make Books with Holes a must for every child.
