Don't Be Scared
With the support of over thirty of our best-loved Children’s Laureates and illustrators of the 20th and 21st centuries, including; Jacqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl, Michael Morpurgo, Geraldine McCaughrean, Quentin Blake, Tony Ross and Carol Ann Duffy, the new book is dedicated to all the children and families cared for at Bristol Children's Hospital.
Filled with tales of thunder claps and walking chalk, dark nights, dare-devil sheep and huffy cats, the book shares the magic and fears of childhood for children and grown-ups to enjoy. Some are fables, some adventures, some are wickedly funny; all of them fizz with imagination and a child’s sense of wonder.

A Wisp of Wisdom
Eleven authors, an artist and a publisher have come together to create a rather special book, inspired by traditional animal stories from Cameroon.
The stories are fun, and they are beautiful. They are full of tricky tortoises, cunning monkeys, flies stronger than elephants, blue bottomed drills, despicable crocodiles, and animals gathering for meetings up in the sky.
