It's pyjama day at school, and Andrew has brought the perfect pair of pyjamas to wear. They feel perfect, they smell perfect, and they even taste perfect. In fact, they are so perfect that as soon as he puts them (yawn) . . . on (yawn) . . . he falls into a deep, deep (zzzzzzz) sleep. Everyone tries to wake him — his friends, the teachers, his sister — but no luck! Is it possible that a perfect pair of pyjamas can make you miss morning recess, lunchtime, AND afternoon recess?

In the fifth book, Scaredy Squirrel plans his own birthday and surprise!... things get very crowded.

Scaredy Squirrel is planning his own birthday party for one – but despite his detailed plans, things get out of control when the party animals arrive.

He's back! Scaredy Squirrel, the loveable worrywart, returns for another nutty adventure. Scaredy never plans big birthday parties. He'd rather celebrate alone quietly in the safety of his nut tree and avoid those pesky party animals (ants, clownfish, ponies and Bigfoot). When all his excessive plans are thrown up in the air like confetti, will Scaredy play dead and cancel? Or will he face the music?

We know by now that Scaredy Squirrel only feels safe when he's at home in his nut tree, with his defenses, his emergency kit and his back–up plans at the ready. So even though the sun is shining and it's time for a vacation, Scaredy does not want to go to the beach — that vast, frightening place where a squirrel could get stranded. (Not to mention other hazards such as sea monsters, falling coconuts, seagulls, pirates and lobsters.) Instead, Scaredy builds his own safe beach getaway under his nut tree, complete with germ-free inflatable pool, artificial beach scenery, a flashlight and a plastic flamingo. Still, the lure of the genuine beach is strong — even a dedicated homebody such as Scaredy can't resist it forever. Can his back–up plans save him from its perils? Will his No.65 sunscreen protect his delicate complexion?

Scaredy never sleeps — sleep might mean bad dreams about dragons, ghosts, vampire bats and polka-dot monsters. Our wide-eyed hero has a plan: stay awake all night, every night. Between counting stars, playing cymbals and making scrapbooks, he does a good job of avoiding dreamland. With exhaustion taking its toll, Scaredy comes face-to-face with an alarming horoscope prediction: All his dreams are about to come true! He must prepare for the worst and his Bad Dream Action Plan includes a fire extinguisher to snuff out dragons and a fan to blast away ghosts. But when disaster strikes, will Scaredy survive this ordeal? Will he thank his lucky stars? Will he find sweet dreams? Scaredy Squirrel at Night tackles a fear everyone — and especially the young — can relate to. It's a bedtime story to make light of kids' fear of the dark and a fable for our sleep-deprived society.

When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humour swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.

Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do...until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process!

This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss has charmed his way into the consciousness of 4 generations of youngsters and parents. Help your kids learn to read the Dr. Seuss way!

It's the Grazers vs Biters exciting soccer match! When veggie-nibbling Grazers and meat-munching Biters take to the soccer field, it’s a showdown of prehistoric proportions. Diplodocus shows an herbivore’s soft touch and strikes first for the Grazers. But Gallimimus takes a pass from the twin Pterodactyls on the wings and finishes it off to even things up for the Biters. In the second half, Apatosaur scores the go-ahead goal for the veggie-side, but then a brawl results in red cards for both teams. Hungry to tie the game, Biter Allosaurus takes advantage. Now it’s 2-2, setting up the teeth-gnashing, claw-curling final minutes. . . .

This hardcover book includes bright illustraions that seem to jump out of the pages, easy text for a beginner or near beginner reader and 32 pages of dinosaur vs dinosaur fun!

Measures approximately 11" long x 9" wide.

By Barbara Reid

The innovative illustrator Barbara Reid's wonderfully colourful, softly three-dimensional Plasticine artwork comes to life in a fresh interpretation of a classic song in this picture book. Replete with cheerful animal couples, a benevolent Noah and his smiling wife, Two by Two captures the childish imagination with a plethora of witty details, familiar, lively rhymes and the almost pop-up quality of the kinetic, sculpted drawings. To save his family from the flood Noah builds a huge ark to hold all the animals. No ark since Noah's own has shown such colour and diversity of life as that of Barbara Reid and her plasticine animals.
