The Flower  by  John Light ,Illustrated by Lisa Evans       
RM22 / RM72

Hardback/ 32pgs/  10” x 11” x 0.25”/Age 5 and up                

Brigg lives in a small, grey room in a large, grey concrete jungle . When he finds a book in the library labeled ‘Do Not Read’, he cannot resist taking it home. In it, he comes upon pictures of bright, vibrant objects called flowers. He cannot find flowers anywhere in the city, but stumbles instead on a packet of seeds. This sets off a chain of events which bring about unexpected results, continuing to grow and bloom even after we have turned the last page. John Light’s increasingly optimistic vision is hauntingly captured by Lisa Evans’s beautiful and whimsical illustrations .
In 2008 Lisa Evans was chosen as one of the Best New Illustrators in the UK.

In this evocative picture book, John Light takes us to a world where there are no flowers or green things. Everything is grey and grim and ugly. Brigg's discovery that flowers once existed, and his subsequent adventure is full of hope. Readers will have a wonderful time imagining what happens next in the story. The marriage of the text and the art in this book is perfect, and readers of all ages will moved by the powerful images that they see, and the thought-provoking ideas that the book explores. -

Ready, Set, Go! (Mini Animotion)


   Attention readers: Start your engines and explore with Ready, Set, Go! As the latest offering in Accord's successful mini AniMotion line, Ready, Set, Go! is gathering speed. From race boats coasting over the water and motorcycles flying over jumps, to race cars zipping toward a checkered finish line, Ready, Set, Go! conveys excitement at every turn and introduces early readers to different modes of transport--from stunt planes to soap box derby carts.

Specially sized for little speedsters, Ready, Set, Go! features bold, graphic illustrations and promises to have early readers zooming toward the finish line again and again.

Tons of Trucks


Big trucks, small trucks, dump trucks, tow trucks, and all kinds of other trucks can
be found in this playful touch-and-move book. A backhoe scoops and digs, a cement
truck spins, a tar truck oozes sticky tar, and tabs pull up and out to reveal surprises.
The trucks eventually slow down for a rest, where little hands can lift the flaps to see
animals snuggling up for sleepy-time—under a rising moon. Filled with vibrant art
and adorable characters, this book gives a child everything he’s looking for when he
presses his face against the fence at a construction site!
