Today I’m excited to share with you more books which have arrived from publisher Graffeg.  A huge thank you to them, and unfortunately for me I have a mad postman who thought it was clever to try and fold a picturebook on the spine to post in through the door!😧  So I hope it doesn’t show in these pictures but one of the paperbacks is a little bent on the spine.😢  All of these picture books look and sound amazing though and I can’t wait to read them all as some of these have been on my radar for some time and they look so beautiful! 🙂  Let’s take a closer look at what came and I’ll begin with the paperbacks…

Mounse & mole: Clink, Clank, Clunk! by joyce Dunbar & James Mayhew – Mole is full of worries; he worriese that their beloved motorbike might break down, so he takes it to bits to see how it works – just in case.  He worries that he might fall off the roof, so he climbs up a tree with Mouse to check it out – just in case.  Worst of all, he worries that a frisky fluttery ghost is coming to get him, so he hides under the bed clothes – just in case.
Luckily, kind, sensible Mouse is always around to make everything all right.

The Wish Gatherers by Karin Celestine & Tamsin RosewellThe year turns, harvest approaches, and the longer night skies fill with stars.  And sometimes, just sometimes, maybe once in a thousand lifetimes, the star you see when you look up is a Wishing Star, one that can hear a wish and make a dream come true.  But once its work is done, who is it that commpletes the cycle and returns it to the heavens?
One of a series of four seasonal stories based around British folklore.  Includes notes on harvest traditions by Pamela Thom-Rowe.

And now for the last hardback which came a little later so I photographed it seperately, and it’s a book I’m so excited about as I really adore this series…
