I’m a little late in showing off these books today, but given recent circumstances, dealing with a delayed funeral and loss of another family member, I hope you’ll forgive me. 🙂  Today’s book post comes from the lovely people at Graffeg and it’s four new lovely looking picture books for children.  I’ll be sharing reviews for these very soon as I’ve already had a look at some of these books, so do look out for those starting next week, but first, let’s see what books are here…

Rita wants a Dragon by Márie Zepf & Mr Ando – Meet Rita.  She’s a little girl with very big ideas.  When Rita becomes cross, she imagnes she has a ferocious dragon who will make the world shudder.  But even the fire of anger is tameable, and Rita knows how.

Ebb and Flo and Their New Friend by Jane Simmons – One day, Ebb and Flo find a bird sitting in their boat – in Ebb’s favourite spot!  Flo invites the bird to join them, but Ebb isn’t so sure and wishes it would just fly away.  But what happens when Ebb’s wish comes true?
A glorious seaside tale of friendship and acceptance.

Fred and the fantastic Tub-Tub by Zeb Soanes & Anja Uhren – When Fred’s green fingered grandfather shows her a map to the mysterious island of Papa Nupi, he leads her on a summer holiday adventure that just might save the planet.  From Zeb Soanes, author of the bestselling Gaspard the Fox books.
Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub is also an exciting orchestral concert work by James Marangone.

Rita wants a Genie by Márie Zepf & Mr Ando – Meet Rita.  She’s a little girl with very big ideas.  Rita wants a genie who will obey her every command and give her all that she dreams of.  Alakazam!  Alakazee!  Zim Zam Alakazoo!  But what if someone else gets their hands on the genie?


Don’t all these sound so good and interesting?  I was waiting for the new Albert the Tortoise book to come too, Albert Supersize, but it didn’t yet, so that’s why I took so long to photograph and share this post with you.  I’ll have reviews of some of these coming next week so look out for them! 🙂
