The House of Madame M by Clotilde Perrin

A large-format lift-the-flaps visit to the haunted house of Madame M—enjoy the thrill of uncovering what lurks in the wardrobe, behind the door, tucked under the furniture… from the author of best-selling Inside the Villains.

The House of Madame M is another exceptional and exquisitely produced pop-up book…full of off-beat humour, meticulous detail and spine-chilling surprises. Outside In World

Assuredly a book to relish far beyond the night of Halloween; this is one to enjoy snuggled in a warm place with a comforting hot chocolate and cosy slippers. Red Reading Hub


The Gobbledegook Book by Joy Cowley & Giselle Clarkson

Joy Cowley’s favourite stories, poems and nonsense rhymes collected and reillustrated in a hardback gift volume for the family to treasure.

This is a book that will delight both younger readers and the older generations. Strutting ducks, exploding pumpkins, and a hungry ogre chewing glue stew all come to life with Clarkson’s imagining. The Gobbledegook Book is the kind of book that will be passed down generations of a family – timeless, joyous and heavy with memories. NZ Book Lovers



Cornelia and the Jungle Machine. ABig Book for children. Published by Gecko PressCornelia and the Jungle Machine by Catharina Valckx

A picture book that takes the young reader into the jungle and immerses them in a filmic universe of mechanical wonders.

The pictures are intricately lined and rich with detail. Expansive images push beyond their edges to make grand use of the tall, rectangular trim. An imaginative fantasy that gives readers plenty of room to roam. Kirkus Reviews
