The hilarious follow-up title to How Rude! which introduced us to the wonderful duo, Dot and Duck. They’re back to share even more giggles in this sweet story about sharing, manners and friendship.

One day Dot and Duck find a stick, only Dot thinks it’s a sword and Duck thinks it’s a flag. When Dot refuses to share the new toy, she goes to any lengths to make sure Duck doesn’t try to take it. How will Duck react to such selfish behaviour?

Simple, funny, and ultimately touching, this book will appeal to any child who is learning what it means to share and, more importantly, what it is to be a true friend.

Bright and colourful illustrations accompany this fun and easy to read story, which will bring a smile to the faces young children time and time again.

A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about fussy eating. Perfect for difficult dinner times!

Lola will not peas. In fact she won’t eat carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, cabbage or baked beans. And she will absolutely not ever NEVER eat a tomato. But when Charlie explains that peas are actually green drops from Greenland, and carrots are really orange twiglets from Jupiter, even Lola is tempted to clear her plate…

Told with true Lauren Child style, this warm and funny picture book will make dinner time fun for even the fussiest of eaters!
