What's a king to do? King Pig is grand ruler of the sheep. He can make them do whatever he wants (clean his castle), whenever he wants (the middle of the night). But for some reason, he can't seem to make them like him. Until he has a brilliant idea! King Pig marches all the sheep into his castle and sets them to work dyeing, cutting and knitting their wool into a pile of fancy new clothes. He prances out in his spectacular, intricate, rainbow-bright fashions expecting applause and adulation, but . . . NOTHING! The sheep are so preoccupied with themselves (could it be that they're naked and cold without their wool?) that they don't even notice him! What's a king to do? When King Pig finally thinks of a way to make amends, it may not be perfect - but it's a pretty good start. Nick Bland's playful, wonderfully humorous illustrations will leave kids and parents grinning, even as they share an important lesson about treating others the way they would like to be treated.

A heartwarming, cozy story that celebrates family affection and the importance of giving back a hug. When Lucy's mother gives Lucy the last hug she has, Lucy promises to give it back, but first she must share it with everyone in the house - Dad, the twins, the baby and even her dog, Annie. Along the way, the hug changes - it becomes stronger, bigger, a bit slobbery, peanut-buttery, and at one point it even runs away on her. But it always comes back to her and it's always nice. With charming affirmations of love on every page, parents and their children will love Freya Blackwood's simply adorable illustrations and the familiar scenes of a slightly chaotic household just before bedtime.

Bear is back...and he's very, very hungry! Bear is hungry! He's trying to fish, but instead of food, he only manages to catch...a polar bear? The poor bear is lost and his ice floe is rapidly melting. The polar bear makes a deal - he'll give Bear a pile of fish in return for a new home. Bear takes his new friend on a tour, and finally they find just the right home for a polar bear. The Bear we all fell in love with in The Very Cranky Bear and The Very Itchy Bear is just as delightful as always - and much less cranky with the promise of food on the horizon! This new story features the same bold, clever illustrations and catchy rhyming text that made Nick Bland's first two Bear books instant favourites. Told with his characteristic humour and wit, The Very Hungry Bear is both an endearing tale of friendship and a subtle, yet important, reminder, about preserving our environment.

All Bear wants is to hibernate in his cozy cave, but sneaky Fox has his own plans for the space! "A great big bear like you," said Fox, "so big and strong and brave, a creature so magnificent . . . deserves a bigger cave."
