description:
The Rainbow Fish is an international best-seller and a modern classic. Eye-catching foil stamping, glittering on every page, offers instant child appeal, but it is the universal message at the heart of this simple story about a beautiful fish who learns to make friends by sharing his most prized possessions that gives the book its lasting value.

description:
The witch had a cat
    and a very tall hat,
And long ginger hair
    which she wore in a plait.
How the cat purred
    and how the witch grinned,
As they sat on their broomstick
    and flew through the wind.

"A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood.
A fox saw the mouse and the mouse looked good."

Walk further into the deep dark wood,
and discover what happens when
the quick-thinking mouse comes face
to face with an owl, a snake and a hungry gruffalo...

description:
The sea snail slithered all over the rock
And gazed at the sea and the ships in the dock.
And as she gazed she sniffed and sighed.
"The sea is deep and the world is wide
How I long to sail!"
said the tiny snail.

One starry night, in a long forgotten shop, something magical was about to happen...
A stuffed and stripy horse let out an enormous dusty sneeze and woke himself up.

Helped along the way by some extraordinary creatures, he finds the answer in the most unexpected place.

A story for children who imagine that things come to life when the world is fast asleep.
