The Invisible

Tom Percival

4-6 years

The Invisible is the story of a young girl called Isabel and her family.

They don't have much, but they have what they need to get by. Until one day, there isn't enough money to pay their rent and bills and they have to leave their home full of happy memories and move to the other side of the city.

It is the story of a girl who goes on to make one of the hardest things anyone can ever make...a difference.

And it is the story of those who are overlooked in our society - who are made to feel invisible - and why everyone has a place here. We all belong.

LoveMyRead Review

What a beautiful story, beautifully told and with illustrations to match. Isabel shows just how each and every one of us can make a difference.

Bunny Vs Monkey and The Human Invasion

Jamie Smart

7-9 years

Since he crash-landed to Earth in a rocket, Monkey has been causing absolute mayhem! Bunny and the gang (Squirrel, Pig [the Pig], Action Beaver, and Skunky the Inventor) have almost had enough. In this rollicking comic extravaganza, the pint-sized friends must tackle a helliphant, rocket-powered hot air balloons, and the most mind-boggling creatures of all… hew-mans…

Jamie’s art and storytelling fizz with exuberance – the pages turn themselves in this addictive collection of stories.

LoveMyRead Review

I’ve been a fan of the Phoenix comic’s Bunny versus Monkey for years. All was peaceful in the woods for animals like Weenie the Squirrel and Pig the Pig until Monkey crashed down in a rocket and started to create mayhem. The love-hate relationship between Bunny and Monkey is in the great tradition of Roadrunner and Coyote. I love how the characters are so easily distracted from their own stories and of course Jamie Smart’s drawings are full of wild energy. A dose of colourful laughter to vaccinate you against the dull winter days.

A powerful story of two unlikely friends brought together by the love of a dog It only takes one day at their new school for Parker and Sven to become mortal enemies.

Parker's had a terrible summer and just wants to be invisible, while Sven is desperate to make an impression and be known as anything other than "that boy with epilepsy." When Parker discovers her beloved dog Alaska - who she had to give away last year - now belongs to Sven, she's determined to steal Alaska back. Of course, that's easier said than done...

LoveMyRead Review

Parker wants to try to get through school without being noticed. Sven wants everyone to see him do something outrageous so he can be known as something other than the boy with epilepsy. It doesn’t take long for the two to become enemies. And the temperature goes even higher when Parker discovers that her beloved, lost dog - Alaska - has become Sven’s assistance dog. Obviously she’s got to steal her dog back.
Anna Woltz is a master of her craft. The chapters in the book are alternately narrated by Parker and Sven in a way that makes the plot move really quickly while throwing your sympathies all over the place. You know from page one that you’re in good hands.
