NEW TITLES

THE GREAT PAINT Alex Willmore The Great Paint is a brilliantly funny tale about what can happen when we forget to think of others and get carried away with our artistic endeavours... Frog thinks he’s pretty artistic and that the rest of the forest could do with a little bit of inventive improvement. From painting to sculpture, to performance art and origami, Frog gets to work on beautifying everything around him... but will his friends appreciate his creativity? And how will Frog show them he’s sorry and that true creative inspiration lies in the friendship of others?

HOW THE STARS CAME TO BE Poonam Mistry Have you ever wondered how the stars came to be? Poonam Mistry’s acclaimed modern take on traditional folk tales offers a miraculous explanation. The fisherman’s daughter loved to dance in the sunlight, and bathe in the glow of the moon. But, when the moon would disappear for a few nights each month, the fisherman’s daughter would worry about her father: how would he find his way home from sea in the deep darkness? When the sun finds her sobbing one night, he takes one of his rays and smashes it on the ground, creating the stars. It is then that the young girl begins to arrange the bright new stars in the dark night sky...
