INTRODUCTION Buster Books loves to create books for curious and creative children. Our 2017 list is brimming with titles to spark the imagination and encourage exploration, to satisfy the keenest of puzzle masters and, above all, to be enjoyed. Children can learn how beautiful maths can be in Hooray for Hexagons, or delve into the prehistoric world of dinosaurs and ancient beasts in Dinosauria and The Book of Prehistoric Beasts. They can get stuck into innovative sticker art with Animetrics and Sticker Studio, or take on Connectrix, a brand new type of puzzle challenge. In June, we publish a particularly timely title – My Little Book of Big Freedoms – a special collaboration with Amnesty International and illustrator Chris Riddell. We hope you enjoy our 2017 list. Dive in and have fun. www.busterbooks.co.uk
