A unique, laugh-out-loud funny story full of weird and wonderful real animals with unbelievable names from Kes Gray, author of Oi Dog, and illustrator Nikki Dyson. This is a wonderful series of stories all about the little red train and his driver Duffy. The stories are told with a steady pace and the information about trains interests young railway enthusiasts. However, it is the illustrations that really make these books stand out. This is an all-time favourite of mine.
Even reading it now, every word is familiar; I must have made my parents read it to me over and over again! This is a fantastic simple interactive book in the traditional sense. As we go through the seasons, children have to tap, blow, rub the tree for the magic to happen on the next page. This beautiful rhyme about babies from all over the world flows with warmth and gentleness. They are a great way to introduce even the youngest of babies to the joys of books. Meet Walter: a very neat and tidy dog with a brand new teapot.

While Daario and his Stormcrows face the Long Lances , a sellsword company hired by Yunkai, in the Khyzai Pass , but Daario boasts that twelve of them defected to his side, while only nine of his own had died.
