5x Funny Picture Books #giveaway
5x Funny Picture Books #giveaway

Have you read every book to your child during lockdown so many times you no longer need to look at the text?

We’re on lockdown here in the UK, which means we can’t make visits to our local library for new books – a disaster in my house. It’s not that we haven’t got books, but even our favourites are getting old. If you have the same problem, fear not. My ‘5x Funny Picture Books Giveaway’ is here to help.

About the books.

All illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees, these books are bright, colourful and will (hopefully) survive being retold until the end of lockdown.

Titles on offer are:

The Chimpanzees of Happytown

Chimpanzees of Happytown

Story by Giles Andreae

Life is no fun for the chimps in Drabsville – the mayor demands that all their houses look the same and that no one should have a good time. But things take a more colourful turn when Chutney the chimpanzee arrives, carrying a tiny seed in a box…

With all the craziness in the world at the moment, I think we all deserve to escape Drabsville and find a piece of ‘Happytown.’

Down by the Cool of the Pool

Down by the Cool of the Pool

Story by Tony Mirton

Join sprightly Frog and his energetic farmyard friends frolicking down by the cool of the pool – flipping and flopping, splishing and splashing in the watery wonderland. 

If you’re missing a trip ‘down by the cool of the pool’, this is the book for you! (Gotta stop with the lockdown puns)

All Afloat on Noah’s Boat

All Afloat on Noah's Boat

Another story by Tony Mitton

Noah’s amazing Rainbow Ark is busy and noisy, and it’s not long before the animals begin to get cabin-fever. Clever old Noah hatches a plan for an incredible creature cabaret to get the Ark swinging again.

Did someone say cabin fever! Arrghhh!!!

Ants in your Pants

Ants in your Pants

Story by Julia Jarman

Leopard is having a party, but he hasn’t invited Aardvark. When naughty ants start biting bottoms at the birthday bash, it isn’t long before all the guests are throwing their pants in the air to get rid of them! Only Aardvark can eat the ants and save the day, but will he make it to the party?

I dedicate this book to all the children out there with birthdays who will have to wait to invite their friends and family to their parties.

Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus

Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus

Another great Tony Mitton/Guy Parker Rees collaboration.

Shake, Shake, Shudder…near the sludgy old swamp. The dinosaurs are coming. Get ready to romp.

Join in with Triceratops, Stegosaurus and their friends as the dinosaurs stir up a dinosaurumpus! 

Perfect for dinosaur fans – and not a lockdown joke in sight for this one ha ha ha.

Entry is simple, just answer the ridiculously easy question below, and these books could be on the way to you very soon.

Hope you’re all surviving lockdown, and Good Luck with the giveaway.

Love Suzie xx

“Mog” May Giveaway

Regular readers of my blog will know that Judith Kerr’s ‘Mog’ series has a special place in my heart (and on my bookshelf). I’ve read the stories of the lovable, and just a little bit naughty, cat to my children and now to my grandchildren. And they love them just as much as I do. So, here’s your chance to win 4 ‘Mog’ books in my May Giveaway.

Titles up for grabs this month include:

Mog the Fogetful Cat

Mog the forgetful cat

Mog always seems to be in trouble. She forgets that she has a cat flap and she forgets that she has already eaten her supper. But, one night, Mog’s forgetfulness comes in very handy…

Mog in the Dark

mog in the dark

One night Mog’s imagination takes her on a hilarious twilight adventure to a land of fantastical creatures, but true to form, all Mog really wants is her supper!

Mog on Fox Night

mog on fox night

One evening Mog refuses to eat her food and Mr Thomas decides he’s had enough and outside she must go. In the snow Mog feels cold and alone until she wakes from a snooze to find some young foxes are playing with the rubbish bags.

Mog and the V.E.T mog and the vet

One day Mog was chasing a butterfly when something happened to her paw. “She’ll have to go to the vee ee tee,” said Mrs Thomas. But Mog hates going to the vet and before her paw can be made better, she causes great confusion in the vet’s surgery…

Every child deserves to read ‘Mog’ so if you’d like to win these four stories, just enter on the form below.

The winner will be drawn on 1st June.

Good luck.

Announcing my March giveaway, 5x Guy Parker-Rees Picture Books.

March giveaway

If you’ve been reading my blog, you will have noticed that I often wish I could draw. OK, I can do stick people and things with straight lines, like houses, aren’t too shoddy, but anything more?  Forget it.  One of my favourite book illustrators is Guy Parker-Rees. I love his bright, bold artwork… and kids do too. So, I’m excited to have five of his picture books up for grabs in my March giveaway.

Here are the books you can win.

The Jungle Run

Here come the animals, one by one.
They’re all getting ready for the Jungle Run.
Cub turns up to take her place

Cub may be little compared to the other animals, but she’s quick and clever and she knows just how to show the rest of the jungle what a winner she is.

Spookyrumpus

Bong! Goes the bell in the rickety tower, Twelve times…that means it’s Spooky Hour. 
Listen! Hush! Oooh, what’s that sound? The midnight spooks are coming round.

When Jolly Olly Octopus gets the giggles, it isn’t long before the waves of bubbly laughter have spread to all his friends and the whole sea bed is awash with sea creatures chuckling away. But, oh no! Here comes Shark! Suddenly things aren’t quite so funny any more.

K is for Kissing a cool Kangaroo
