Room on the Broom

By: Julia Donaldson

Illustrated by: Axel Scheffler

The witch and her cat start out on a journey on the broom. Along the way she loses a few things and gains some companions. This turns out to be a wonderful thing because when a dragon decides he wants the witch for tea her new friends come to the rescue in the strangest way.

Another fun outing from the magical pairing of  Donaldson and Scheffler. A fun rhyming tale and an entertaining story of helping and friendship. Originally published 10 years ago it is still full of appeal. You can’t really make a mistake picking up a book written by this pair.

Aliens Love Underpants

By: Claire Freedman

Illustrated By: Ben Cort

There aren’t any underpants in space but aliens love them they think they are great fun. So when aliens decide they have to have some underpants they come down to earth.

Really the title of this books says it all. It tells you right away that this is going to be silly and fun. It is enjoyable text that rhymes and the illustrations are bold and equally as silly. A great choice for children who like aliens and things related to toilet humour.

Big Bad Bushranger

By Bob Brown

Illustrated by Ben Wood

This wombat as a big bad bush-bushranger, he steals what he can, runs from the law, lives in danger and has the best hiding spot ever.

A totally fun read, with great rhythm and cool illustrations. Very easy to get into the spirit of this story.
