Published this month by Alison Green Books, What Can You Stack on the Back of a Yak? is brought to life by Adam Stower's wonderfully characterful illustrations. Find out just how much Yak really can stack on his back...

Just Published: The Story of Stars by Neal Layton

The multi-talented Neal Layton gives us his unique perspective on stars, solar systems and galaxies in The Story of Stars, published by Hodder this month. This fun pop-up book, follows on from the success of The Story of Everything and The Story of Things, which make complicated theories accessible to children. Did you know that the Ancient Greeks did a join-the-dots with the night sky? Or that the sun is our nearest star? Or that stars are born, live and die, just like us?

Kristyna Litten: Just Published: Pigeon Pie, Oh My!

Illustrated by Kristyna Litten, Pigeon Pie, Oh My!  is a great cause-and-effect story with lots of visual clues throughout the narrative and teaches the reader that even if you're little, you can make yourself count.

Down on Budd Farm, the naughty goat causes havoc, and eats the scarecrow’s clothes, leaving the pigeons to steal the corn in the farmers field but the other farmyard animals have a clever plan to save the crop. This fun picture book about working together, written by Debbie Singleton, is published by Oxford University Press this month.

Kristyna has brought life and humour to the farmyard characters, giving this story warmth and style with her limited colour palette and attention to detail.

Just Published: Troll and the Oliver by Adam Stower

Adam Stower's new picture book Troll and the Oliver is published this month by Templar. Adam has created a visual treat with a gorgeous blue troll at the heart of his hilarious story. Troll is very hungry, and every day he tries to eat Oliver on his way to the shops. But catching Oliver is not as easy as it looks…

Adam has created wonderful expression with Troll's wayward eyebrows and big toothed grin and he also captures Oliver's personality beautifully as he skips through the book taunting Troll with his basket of goodies.

Don't just believe us, book & media blog: "Read It, Daddy!" love it too, here's what they think:

"As monster books go this is pretty much perfect. It sets its cards on the table early on, then gathers them in one by one in such a manner that you will reach the end, flip the book back to page one and begin all over again. Troll and Oliver are brilliant characters (you really will not like Oliver at first, but bear with, bear with!) and like all clever ideas for children's stories, it's such a simple premise but beautifully executed. We just could not get enough of it."
