Guess How Much I Love You

By: Sam McBratney

Illustrated By: Anita Jeram

Sometimes you want to tell someone just how much you love them. Little Nutbrown Hare feels this way and so he tries to tell Big Nutbrown Hare how he feels, Big Nutbrown Hare then tries to do the same. They very quickly discover that sometimes finding the right words just isn’t that easy.

This story is a perennial favourite and a modern classic for a reason. This is a simple yet stunningly beautiful picture book. The text is heartfelt and wonderfully descriptive as the two hares try to describe the depths of their feelings. The accompanying illustrations are perfectly paired with the text on both simplistic design and descriptive levels. A true classic and a must have for any bookshelf.

There’s A Hippopotamus On Our Roof Eating Cake

By: Hazel Edwards

Illustrated by Deborah Niland

‘My daddy says there’s a hole in our roof. I know why there’s a hole. There’s a hippopotamus on our roof eating cake.’

Eating cake is not the only thing this particular hippopotamus does. This hippopotamus gets to do lots of fun things.

The main character has a wonderful imagination and the story is accompanied by simple and appealing illustrations. This is a truly fun story that has withstood the test of time and is still being published 30 years on.
