Four of our best selling titles together at a reduced price and with free shipping – Never Snap at a Bubble, The Tiniest Hippo, Little Brown Monkey and Smokey.

Never Snap at a Bubble is delightfully illustrated by Carol Aitken McLean-Carr. It’s a counting story aimed at three to five year olds with a funny allegorical twist to the tale.

The Tiniest Hippo has lyrical watercolour illustrations by Adelaide artist Donna Gynell. It’s a playful and joyous tale for three to five year olds about a baby Hippo who likes to trick the older Hippos.

Little Brown Monkey, illustrated by Jim Tsinganos, is the tale of a young monkey who loves to dress up – much to the derision of his own villagers until he finds an appreciative audience in the next village – and becomes quite the trend setter back home. A story for three to five year olds.

Smokey – This is a story about a little hen called Smokey who went away to have a little sulk and ended up on a strange adventure that lasted for two hundred miles and three whole days.

What does a little hen have to do to attract the attention of her favourite Vet?

The story of Smokey came via an email from David Aggett, a Vet from England, who is married to Yvonne’s niece Beth. The original email is included at the back of the book. At the risk of sounding clich├ęd, Smokey is ‘based on a true story!’

Smokey was originally written and illustrated in watercolours by Yvonne for her niece’s children. It was printed in small numbers using a print-on-demand system but its popularity has seen a larger print run in using a traditional publishing method.
