What’s Frog Thinking? by Nico Hercules

June 2016

Have you ever wondered what frogs think about and could they have fantastic imaginations? Follow the wandering mind of a frog while he silently ponders on his lily pad leaf. Written in bouncy rhyme, you’ll meet some interesting characters along the way including a curious shrew, an elegant stoat and a newt who plays the cello rather well!

Where’s Polar Bear?

Bear just wants a cool, new hairstyle to impress his friends, but finding a style that suits him proves very difficult and he ends up being laughed at. Can he find the perfect hair and please his woodland friends, or do they like him just the way he is? The Bear and the Hair is perfect for parent and child reading time – the puppet Bear mouth opens up the potential for role play fun. A 360º rotatable mouth helps bring Bear to life on each page.

Polar Bear’s gone, but where did he go? He seems to have vanished somewhere in the snow. This playful tale explores the various possibilities as to where he might have gone – each more fanciful and ridiculous than the last. Written in bouncy rhyme, you’ll meet various characters along the way including a smart Arctic fox, an interesting walrus and a respectable seal. Could Polar Bear be closer than we think?
