“No animal is half so vile/As Crocky-Wock the crocodile” Roald Dahl is at his very best in this selection of hilarious poems about animals. A great companion piece to Revolting Rhymes.
Long-lost twins Olivia and Ivy couldn’t be more different – Olivia’s a cheerleader and Ivy’s a vampire! A great story for aspiring Stephanie Meyer (Twilight) readers with a liking for horror.
An impressive model kit including fantastic features such as pop-up ghosts, spooky picture frames and skeletons. Glue, scissors and a bit of work should result in a masterpiece!
Roald Dahl fans will love this hilarious tale of mean, miserable old Mr. Gum, and the bath-dwelling fairy that hits him with a frying pan whenever his garden starts to look messy.
A novelty bath book that tells a simple story and also squirts water! Best read in the bath, but being wipe-clean also good at mealtimes, showing babies that reading is fun everywhere!
