Today I’m excited to share with you a bumper book haul from publisher Graffeg.  These books all came at different times in the last month or so, but I’m sharing them all with you today as I can’t wait to read these and then share my reviews!  Graffeg publish lots of books but these are all children’s picture books and there are some books in a series I already love Ebb and Flo as well as plenty of new ones!  Let’s take a look and I’ve separated this into two photos (apologies for the front covers being only half visible in the first pic)…
