hi i would like to buy my DS some new books, he has some of the classics (gruffly, when tiger came to tea etc) and would like some recommendations of other books. He loves cars, diggers, trains etc but most of all he loves listening to stories - please help!

My 2yo is nuts about Maisy- Maisy goes to the Museum, goes camping, goes to Hospital, etc etc

He likes Meg and Mog, all the Jdonaldson/AScheffler books, Usborne's Flip Flap Farm, Tip Tip Dig Dig, Dr Seuss (Sam I am, Fox in Socks), Alfie books, Kipper, Spooky Rumpus, Nick Sharrat's Caveman Dave, Spot.

He also loves Oliver Jeffer's books about a boy and a penguin- Lost and Found, Up and Down, The Way Back Home, and How to Catch a Star- the illustrations are just gorgeous, and we saw the play when it toured too- he still talks about it months later.

Mo Willems - the elephant and Piggie range. Brilliant. I want to Play Outside is my fave.

Anything by Nick Sharatt (eg One Mole Digging a Hole)

Man on the Moon - a Day in the Life of Bob

Dougal's Deep Sea Diary

Anything by Quentin Blake (as author and illustrator), such as Mr Magnolia, the various ones with Mrs Armitage, Zagazoo)
