He might be small, but intrepid eco-warrior Christopher Nibble is back to save the world – this time armed with his recycled bicycle. Follow the adventures of the greenest guinea pig in Dandeville as he rescues the town’s rubbish and makes it as good as new, in Christopher’s Bicycle by Charlotte Middleton (Oxford University Press, £6.99). Equally determined is deep-sea dweller Piglet Squid, a creature with eight arms, two tentacles, a snorter and a warm smile. After seeing how miserable his fishy friends are, he embarks on a quest to show them the wondrous sights of their ocean world in Joyce Dunbar’s Twinkle, Twinkle, Squiglet Pig (Egmont, £6.99). And love abounds in The Big Hearted Book by Nicholas Allan (Hodder, £11.99). Written inconjunction with the International Children’s Heart Foundation, this is a moving tale about how friendship endures despite illness parting Babette from her best friend, Bill.
