A Cat's Christmas Carol
It’s Christmas Eve and all the staff in the department store are on their way home for Christmas. All except one . . . Clawdia, the department store’s security cat! She doesn’t see the point in silly festive celebrations and would much rather prowl the corridors making sure everything is in order. But when three cold and lonely visitors turn up at the store, they teach Clawdia a few key lessons about the true meaning of Christmas.
A heartfelt holiday story—a great gift for festive fans everywhere!

Hugs and Kisses
There are two sides to every story . . .
Flip the book to read each side of the story in this enchanting tale of a whale and an octopus on their search for love, ending with a huge pop-up surprise.
Big Blue Whale is feeling small. Everyone has someone to hug except from him!
On his journey to find the perfect hug he meets lots of sea creatures who want to hug him including a kind clown fish and a sea horse with a very swirly, whirly tail. But he’s just too big for them to hug!
On the other side of the ocean, Octopus is playing bubble ball with her friends. But when she bangs her head (ouch!) she really needs a kiss better. She meets lots of friendly creatures who offer to give her a kiss, but her tentacles are just too tangly and she begins to think she will never get a kiss better . . .
Join the two creatures as they journey across the ocean to find their perfect match.
