A charming story about a cranky caterpillar and the little girl who brings some colour into his life.

The Cranky Caterpillar is his first picture book.

The Cranky Caterpillar Richard Graham


One day Ezra hears a gloomy blue tune coming from the piano. To her surprise, it’s a caterpillar making the sound: a cranky caterpillar. Ezra tries to cheer him up with some fresh air, cakes, and new hats, but nothing seems to work … What can Ezra do to help the cranky caterpillar change his tune? Richard Graham is a new illustrator with a highly distinctive and original style. The origins of The Cranky Caterpillar lie in his own artistic sculptural creations: a caterpillar created from the hammers inside an old piano, a band of musical characters, all sculpted from instruments and materials found in his studio. Graham has also been inspired by Wassily Kandinsky’s colour synesthesia, whereby we are shown the magical colours of music, in this splendidly illustrated book. Children will identify with the struggle the caterpillar goes through in trying to articulate his emotions, and will delight in the inventive band of friends that succeed in cheering him up.

‘Alemagna’s exuberant, grown-up illustration makes every page a delight’ Observer

Told and illustrated in Beatrice Alemagna’s exquisite trademark style, A Magical Do-Nothing Day celebrates the magical effect boredom can have on a child’s imagination.

Forced outside into the rain for some fresh air, our young protagonist is distraught when her game slips out of her pocket, into the lake. But to her surprise and delight, she finds an entire world of games and excitement in the natural world around her, and discovers the magic in doing nothing.



A classic book from the golden age of children’s book illustration. For ages 3+ Julian Tuwim was a major figure in Polish literature, known especially for his contribution to children’s literature. He was the recipient of the prestigious Golden Laurel of the Polish Academy of Literature in 1935. Locomotive is among his best-known works and has been translated into many different languages. Graphic design duo Jan Le Witt and George Him worked together for over twenty years as ‘Lewitt and Him’, and made a lasting impact on the design world. Later picture book collaborations included the Little Red Engine stories and The Football’s Revolt.

Locomotive Rhymes by Julian Tuwim • Drawings by Lewitt and Him


This classic book invites us aboard a steam train as it chuffs and puffs out of the station carrying giraffes, elephants, bicycles, umbrellas and a trio of men, all eating sausages. Just like the 1938 original, this edition also includes a well-loved folk tale about an enormous turnip and the hilarious story of chatterbox birds who can’t agree on anything.

‘ Locomotive is a true pioneer, paving the way for multiple generations of children’s book illustrators, including myself. I was fortunate enough to have been exposed to this book as a child, and Lewitt and Him’s innovative typography and bold art deco illustrations still look fresh, dignified and beautiful, even after 80 years! I’m so grateful that great works like this are preserved and republished, so that they can continue to inspire artists and readers to come’ Oliver Jeffers

A Drink of Water And Other Stories John Yeoman • Illustrations by Quentin Blake Who would believe it could be so hard to get a drink of water? And to find it at last, cool and fresh but out of reach – that was a problem indeed for a young monkey. But luckily for him, he had an observant and logical mind. This was more than could be said for the dog that made friends with the bear, or the vain jackdaw; and as for the silly ewe and the nanny goat – well, one might call it guile or one might call it simplicity that kept the wolves at bay. First published in 1960, this charming book of animal fables was the first children’s book either Quentin Blake or John Yeoman ever published. It exudes all the warmth and wit we have come to expect of their collaborations.

The woods are abuzz with activity as all the animals get ready for a very special event: Red the fox’s wedding day. But as the penguins are collecting the decorations, they realize not everyone is feeling happy in themselves. Olly the horse is upset that he is the only one of his friends not to have turned into a unicorn; Lionel the lion has lost his pride and glory – his mane; and on the morning of her wedding, the cake Red fox had spent hours making is stolen by the big bad wolf. In these three heart-warming tales, the penguins and their friends work together to cheer each other up and their inventive solutions show what a difference good friends can make. Each story ends with the same empowering mantra, ‘Be happy now!’.
