Leilong the Library Bus by Julia Liu
A library-loving picture book in which an enthusiastic dinosaur absorbed in storytime threatens to flatten the library—until the children decide to take the books outdoors.

The children are late for storytime at the library. Ever helpful, Lei the enthusiastic dinosaur can get them there on time! Lei's small head is the only part of him that fits so he must listen through the window. But he gets so excited by the story, he starts to shake the building. Lei's love of stories risks destroying the library until the children decide to take the books outdoors. Translated from Chinese, this library-loving picture book reminds us how it feels to be transported by story. And what first seems a problem for Lei the dinosaur becomes a triumph.

"Young readers will come to understand an underlying gentle message of recognising and embracing differences." Kirkus Review

A Mother Is a House by Aurore Petit
A mother is a nest, a vehicle, a mirror…

The baby sees their mother in every aspect of their day. As the pages go by, the child grows. The mother who was a refuge becomes a road, a story and a show. On the final page, the child is ready to take their first steps. Because a mother is a home that you carry inside you forever.

A Mother Is a House looks through the baby’s eyes for an unexpected and affecting picture of parents and home-shown through bright, contemporary illustrations and special inks.

If I Had An Octopus by Gabby Dawnay and Alex Barrow
I really want a clever pet, a pet with many charms. The sort of pet with talents, and a large amount of arms.

Have you ever thought about what the best aquatic pet would be? It’s an octopus, of course! Playing different ball games simultaneously and staying camouflaged when it’s bedtime is eight times the fun - just watch out for the ink…

With vibrant illustrations and playful rhymes, If I Had an Octopus is a charming and imaginative tale about bedtime story that follows a little girl’s flight of fancy as she imagines the advantages and disadvantages of having an octopus for a pet.
