Primrose by Alex T. Smith
Life for Princess Primrose is rather dull because she’s not allowed to climb trees, dig up muddy vegetables or even splash in the fountain. Everyone in the royal household is properly proper, and Primrose longs to have some serious FUN. But things take a turn for the better when Primrose’s Grandmama comes for a visit and reminds everyone never to say no to a spot of fun. A gorgeous new picture book by Alex T. Smith that reminds us to giggle.

Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson
Timothy Limpet feels out of place in the troll family – he likes things to be just so, and most trolls, frankly, don’t. Tabitha Lumpit likes things to be loud, loopy and messy and she feels a fish out of water in her very neat family. Sometimes they wonder if their families really see them for who they are, so when Timothy and Tabitha meet on the bridge they decide each other’s family is a better fit and they swap places …with hilarious and touching results. Based around the time-honoured theme of home is where the heart is, this warm and witty story is a celebration of the individual and offers a valuable lesson on not judging others.
