The Window is a stunning example of collage work which may inspire creativity in illustrations of children. As well as providing plenty of giggles, it also carries a valuable message about the importance of caring appropriately for the environment.

Pete hoovering up the catalogue reference on the final page of Tidy suggests that he hasn’t reformed entirely and is always going to be tempted to interfere with things that should be left alone. A rhyming text and witty illustrations introduce us to badger, Pete, whose penchant for keeping the forest and his various animal friends spick and span appears, to begin with, largely laudable.Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do. It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you. The attention to detail is fascinating and the message, like the other books, is about our own part in the impact on the environment and the changes we might need to make. Children might like to try use the Drop Box programme to try and make their own illustrations more detailed and entertaining.

Some also introduce children to different weather patterns, and other amazing features of planet Earth. This is a tale of dinosaurs using their strength and power to break up concrete roads and clear up piles of old cars and other man made rubbish. Whether or not Pete is a totally reformed character remains open to question, however, as, in another typical Gravett touch, he is found hoovering up the British Library catalogue record information on the back page.

Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example.

Emily Gravett is twice winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal and the Nestlé Children's Book Prize Bronze Award for Wolves and Little Mouse's Big Book Of Fears. He is allowed to have a small part of it back with the proviso that it is shared, and we all take care of it. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling. As earth is reclaimed by nature, the message of our responsibility to all living things is reinforced.

A flood follows: cue for double page spread with what looks very convincingly like a lot of real mud in which Pete wallows with his red bucket and mop. It seems Emily Gravett creates stories that linger, make us think alongside being visually glorious. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. They would also only drop off a case of books and leave us to run it – it was so lovely to have you on hand to chat to the children and recommend them books, as well as the small (but appreciated!
