Walker Books Australia

Imprint: Flying Eye Books

September 2017

ISBN: 9781911171164

RRP $27.99

This is the third in this stunning series – which as I’ve mentioned before completely and utterly captures my inner nerdy child. Davey explores the world of cats from big to small, weird to wonderful and sweet to savage with his own special brand of contemporary stylised art and quirky facts.

To find out who has the loudest roar, the longest tail, can jump the furthest or who has the strongest jaws, readers can dip and delve to their hearts’ content. The book also examines the evolution of cats as well as mythology surrounding these fascinating creatures.

Move over the pretty and cute books about kittens – I foresee this will be a highly sought after read on our shelves as our cat lovers relish a whole new look at their favourite animal.

Highly recommended for your primary shelves.

Animal Activity: Cut , fold and make your own wild things – Isabel Thomas

ISBN: 9781408870068
Imprint: Bloomsbury Activity Books

RRP $14.99

Bloomsbury just has the BEST activity books for all ages! This is a super treat for lovers of science and nature. It’s described as a ‘self-destructing, action-packed activity book’ and it certainly is.

So much to cut, fold, create, share, display and think about it that kids will be itching to get their hands and scissors onto it.

As well as the interactive activities there is loads of information about critters and such. With 63 pages of fun to be had – this will make a great gift for that busy child who needs a bit of quiet time (well, it might be the family that needs the quiet time). With The Divine Miss M’s birthday approaching in just a few weeks this will be a perfect addition to her gift bag – and keep her out of her mother’s hair for a bit!

Highly recommended for kids who love to ‘make’ from around 7 years upwards.
