Little Tiger Press

There was a new toy in the bedroom. He was small, soft and floppy and had a squidgy tummy covered in stripes. His name was Humphrey. No one is quite sure what sort of toy Humphrey is or what he can do. And, when the toys decide to help him find out, Humphrey has a big surprise.

Alexis Deacon

Red Fox

A lovely simple story that is both touching and humorous. It sensitively deals with Beegu's loneliness and rejection stranded on earth and shows rather nicely what the knee-high view of what life must be like for toddlers The illustrations are superb.

I'm Special, I'm Me!

Ann Meek and Sarah Massini

Little Tiger Press

Winning story from the highly publicised Seach for a Story 2003 competition that attracted over 1600 entries from around the world.

Milo is fed up. He wants to play at being a pirate captain, but the other children say he’s too short, he must be a deck-hand. He’s too small to be a lion, and not handsome enough to be the prince. But Milo’s mum makes him see that the other roles can be even more fun.

Knuffle Bunny

Mo Willems

Walker Books

Knuffle Bunny is a picture book that we would highly recommend. Any child who has ever had a favourite toy will identify with the toddler in this tale. The plot is simple: Trixie loses bunny, finds bunny and then exuberantly says her first words-"Knuffle Bunny!!!" The fun comes from the details. In an innovative style that employs dappled black-and-white photographs of Brooklyn as backdrop to wickedly funny color cartoons.
