Publication day 1st September 2016

Children's Books

It’s a mammoth publication day here, with new books from Michael Bond, Helen Stephens, Simon Rickerty and more!

Two new titles by Paddington author Michael Bond are out today. The first is The Tale of the Castle Mice gorgeously illustrated by Emily Sutton and the second is a new novel called It Wasn’t Me which has been illustrated by Joel Stewart.



Next up is the third title in the Mango & Bambang series, written by Polly Faber and illustrated by Clara Vulliamy. Tiny Tapir Trouble follows Mango and her tapir friend Bambang as they navigate life with a distinctly irritating and rather small tapir.



Helen Stephens has written and illustrated a third How To Hide A Lion title. This time Iris has to keep her lion friend hidden from her school teacher – it’s the perfect book for children who are starting school!



A number of titles are being published in paperback today. The first Mango & Bambang title (Polly Faber and Clara Vulliamy), The Ransom Of Dond (Siobhan Dowd), I Have An Orange Juicy Drink (Andrew Sanders) and Ten Little Monsters (Simon Rickerty) were all previously published in hardback and now have lovely paperback editions!
