The Highway Rat is a baddie – he roams the highway stealing food from his fellow animals. Chocolates, biscuits, clover and even leaves – they all end up in his tummy. He shows no remorse and is extremely ungrateful. Meanwhile, his fellow animals are growing increasingly hungry and sad.
Then one day he tries to steal from a quick-thinking duck and everything starts to unravel. Has the Highway Rat finally found his match?
This is Julia Donaldson at her best (and we love the cheeky inclusion of a Gruffalo cookie in the illustrations!)

I imagine that this book wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste but we think it’s hilarious! It’s a simple book with a dry sense of humour and Ivy yells ‘Turtle! Hat! Turtle! Hat! all the way through it!
Two turtles find a hat in the desert. They try it on and it suits them both. They each very much want the hat but there are two of them and only one hat. Can they find a way to each get what they want whilst remaining friends?
A very funny tale about friendship, sharing and a hat.

George is a scruffy giant who is fed up of always wearing the same old patched-up clothes.
When he spots a new shop he treats himself to a brand new outfit. He even buys a tie! He loves his new look but it soon becomes apparent that not only is he the smartest giant in town, he is also the kindest.
He donates his new tie to a giraffe with a cold neck, his new shirt becomes a sail for a goat who is stranded in his boat, and a shiny new shoe becomes a house for a family of mice. Soon poor George has hardly any clothes on at all.
What on earth is he going to do? This is a lovely story about kindness, friendship and good karma.
