Peck Peck Peck by Lucy Cousins Little woodpecker can't wait to show off his new skill.
 9 of 12 


Little woodpecker has a new skill – and he wants to show it off. He pecks the hat, the mat, the tennis racket and the jacket… Before he knows it, there are colourful holes all over Peck Peck Peck by Lucy Cousins (Walker, £11.99). An old favourite gets an imaginative follow-up courtesy of Julia Donaldson in The Further Adventures Of The Owl And The Pussycat (Puffin, £12.99). The author of The Gruffalo revisits the Edward Lear rhyme, where our familiar pair travel across the sea to Chankly Bore and beyond… Another classic children’s favourite is revived for a fresh audience in Little Grey Rabbit’s Snowy Day by Alice Corrie (Templar, £7.99). This new story about Alison Uttley’s woodland characters, Little Grey Rabbit, Squirrel and Hare, sees the trio go tobogganing. If this whets your child’s interest, invest in the Little Grey Rabbit’s Story Treasury (Templar, £14.99) – a beautiful collection of all six original stories.
