Let us know if we have missed out your favourite!



Where's Spot?  By Eric Hill



In Eric Hill's classic Where's Spot? lift the flaps to find Spot!

In Spot's first adventure children can join in the search for the mischievous puppy by lifting the flaps on every page to see where he is hiding. The simple text and colourful pictures will engage a whole new generation of pre-readers as they lift the picture flaps in search of Spot. A No.1 bestseller since it was first published in 1980, this interactive favourite has stayed in the charts ever since.

This is a bigger, brighter paperback edition of Eric Hill's iconic first lift-the-flap book.

'Spot is one of the essential experiences of childhood.' Parents magazine

Eric Hill was born in North London and lived there for many years. He started his artistic career as an art studio messenger and from there went on to become a cartoonist and eventually an art director at a leading advertising agency. In 1978 Eric made up a story about a small puppy to read to his son at bedtime and Spot was born. The success of his first bestselling lift-the-flap classic Where's Spot? in 1980 convinced him to become a full-time author. Eric currently resides in France.

Marley & Me: by John Grogan



This No.1 Sunday Times bestseller tells the heart-warming tale of how a wiggly yellow fur ball of a puppy could grow into a barrelling, ninety-seven pound stramroller of a Labrador retriever who would prove that unconditional love comes in many forms.

John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Along comes Marley, mischievous, hyperactive and so unruly he is expelled from obedience school. How could they possibly know that this incorrigible dog could teach them more about love for life than they could hope to teach him?

Since becoming a major motion picture, starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, this heart-warming and unforgettable story of a family and their haphazard dog has become a timeless family favourite.

The Life Of A Greyhound Called Katy by Marie Batey



Life as a greyhound isn't always easy: having your injections at the age of six weeks; beginning your training for the race courses, mating with a complete stranger, and then parting with your pups. Perhaps worst of all is the possibility of getting injured at the race-track.

But, it can also be filled with joy: when you can run free in the field; when you have a litter of adorable pups; when you win your first trophy at the races, and when you know that you have found your true home with people who love and care for you.

This is the story of Katy the greyhound – a kind of ‘canine memoirs' as ‘told' by Katy herself. Heart-warming, funny and occasionally tinged with sadness, it tells of the life and loves of canine – or rather greyhound – life.
