    Abc Pop Up
    Whether you're a young child or a design connoisseur, the clever associations in this diminutive pop-up will charm you in a big way. A is for Apple, springing up to attention. B is for Book, its pages flapping. F is for Flower, of course, but is that G tucked away in the grass? Hugely enjoyable from the first glance, this small-scale, 3-D look at everyday objects offers many hidden pleasures, such as when adjacent alphabet letters share a spread in unexpected ways -- a Letter in a Mailbox, a Pillow on a Quilt, twisty Roots under a Swing on a Tree. Simple and stylish, ABC Pop-Up is an elegant choice for anyone who appreciates artful design, as well as the perfect alphabet learning tool for little hands.

  • Adventures of Miss Petitfour
    Adventures of Miss Petitfour
    Meet the utterly irresistible Miss Petitfour (a name of unknown origin but possibly descended from bakers of tiny delicious cakes). She loves baking and making and dancing with her cats, but most of all she loves to fly. All she has to do is pick up a favourite tablecloth (preferably the one with the paisley print), catch the breeze and she swooshes off on an adventure - with her many cats (Minky, Misty, Taffy, Purrsia, Pirate, Mustard, Moutarde, Hemdala, Earring, Grigorovich, Clasby, Captain Captain, Captain Catkin, Captain Clothespin, Your Shyness and Sizzles) dangling paw-to-tail behind her. In five utterly captivating stories of gentle adventure, delicious edibles (with cheese for the cats), occasional peril and heart-zinging warmth, poet and novelist Anne Michaels (author of bestselling, award-winning Fugitive Pieces) makes a charming, purrfect debut as a children's author.

  • Annual 2
    Annual 2
    Annual 2 contains all-new material for 9- to- 13-year-olds. The result is a highly original, contemporary take on the much-loved annuals of the past – all in one beautiful package.


    Alongside familiar names publishing for children – Gavin Mouldey, Sarah Johnson, Ben Galbraith, Barry Faville, Giselle Clarkson, and Gregory O’Brien – you’ll find the unexpected, including a new song by Bic Runga, a small-town mystery by Paul Thomas, and a classic New Zealand comic illustrated by new talent Henry Christian Slane.


    The editors wanted to throw a completely different kind of publication into the mix, to create something that was both familiar and unexpected.


    “We channelled our younger selves: curious, discerning, up for anything. We tried to make a book we wish we’d be given. All the content is commissioned. This meant we were able to achieve a good balance of gender, ethnicity, and rural/urban experiences. We wanted to reach as many kinds of readers as possible.”


    Annual is playful and smart and packed with content – a book for the whole family. Readers can also visit the website – www.annualannual.com – to download additional material and read more about the contributors.
