      You’re my favourite blog and you inspire my day with my 5-y-o so much. She’s an avid reader, not always what’s written on the page! I could listen to her imagination all day! Thank you for giving us such absorbing information and great giveaways! Xx

    16. ‘Oh No George!’ is one of my favourites, I absoultely love the way that even without reading the words you know excetly what is going on in George’s head. Just what a picture book should do 🙂

    17. LibraryQuine

    21. My daughter’s favourite thing is to build a den in the garden (so that’s where the tablecloth has gone to) and carry/drag out a bag of books to read. These look wonderful and come in the hamper – perfect!
      Thanks for the giveaway.

    22. Yes, please, my lady :0)

      What an absolutely fabulous prize, lots of great titles I would love to win

    24. Anne Booth

      I really really really would love them. I am glad that the winner is chosen at random, as my children are teenagers so are too old for me to use for justification. I could lie & say I’ll give them away…but I won’t. I may, however, read them out to godchildren, and I hope I will have grandchildren…First of all, however, I will read them to myself, and marvel at the wonderful stories and illustrations, and dream about one day having one of my own books in a giveaway by you!

    28. I love the way the word ‘competition’ brings people out of the woodwork of cyberspace. I’m now feeling guilty that while I always read your blog, I haven’t commented for ages . But of course I’d love the books. Very much. Please.
