Numbers - Centipede's 100 Shoes

Daddy - there's a fabulous story by that gorilla man called My Dad. Anthony Brown, that's the man.
Also We're going on a bear hunt has a dad in it.

There's a horrid book called the Dance of the Dinosaurs but I hate it.

Are there MORE Dinosaur Roar books??

Love Rod Campbell sobernow!

We've got the Usborne Farm books too. Dh has a huge problem with the illustrator for that and many other Usborne books (is it Stephen Cartwright...he can't stand him, anyway!) I think they're rather cute.

Trying to think of a suitable category for the gorgeous Handa's Surprise, one of my favourite ever books. Not to mention the Duck in a Truck series...

I think the Sticklands have turned Dinosaur Roar into quite a cottage industry...

Still mulling this over, back later. Wish I had ds' groaning bookcase before me now...

Is Pookie the flying rabbit still in print?
Pamina, funny you should say that, we loved the first two and then felt it was all being milked rather. And ds loathed Hug! and still won't touch it.
Love the Blathwayt farm books, in fact I think his drawings are gorgeous even when they are loving close-ups of ferries etc.

Marina Wed 12-Jan-05 15:25:09

Ted Dewan ROCKS - had forgotten he did Bing as well as Crispin!
We need Bundle, her FIL has compiled wonderful guides to children's books grouped by age, they've been our Bibles.

Pookie is indeed Marina, I remember them fondly from my childhood and we have one here.

Marina Wed 12-Jan-05 15:34:08

I loved his bouffant rompers WWW!

Hausfrau, if your playgroup is primarily for expat Brits, I wonder what if any help this lot might be...
