“A Quiet Night In” by Jill Murphy
Tara price €7
“I Wish That I had Duck Feet” by Dr Seuss
What would life be like if you had feet like a duck, or horns like a deer, a whale spout on your head, or a long, long nose? In this crazy tale a small boy imagines all these things, only to decide in the end that perhaps it’s better to be ‘ME’ after all. With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years.
“Highway Robbery” by Kate Thompson
New in paperback
‘Hold the mare for me, lad. And when I come back I’ll give you a golden guinea.’ It’s more money than the street urchin has ever dreamt of. But who is the rider, and why is there so much interest in his big black horse? And will the boy ever see the money he has been promised?
Tara price €6
