This vintage children’s classic about the power of storytelling is filled with eye-catching new reproductions of Aliki’s iconic illustrations. A boy is sitting on a rock in the jungle when a tiger approaches him. “Run!” says the tiger, “or I will eat you!” But the boy is too tired to run and in order to avoid being eaten he tells the tiger a story. What follows is a thrilling tale that will captivate young readers just as thoroughly as it captivated the hungry tiger. Kids will enjoy waiting breathlessly for every flip of the page as the boy tells his story involving a rhinoceros and a crocodile. Originally published in 1963 and out of print for many years, this book by award-winning illustrator and author Aliki features fabulous vintage style illustrations. This new edition preserves the vivid colors of the original book while introducing a new generation of young readers to a skillfully told story-within-astory with a surprising and satisfying ending.

This Dog – Ko Tēnei Kurī” knows what it takes to be a best friend and he’s chosen, as his best friend, the clever and opportunistic blackbird that lives in his yard. This Dog (Ko Tēnei Kurī) is Blackbird’s (Manu Pango) unconditionally loving, genuine, accepting, trustworthy, dependable, faithful, and steadfast friend; his loyal protector from That Cat (Tērā Ngeru) and a one-dog audience patiently listening to endless performances of Blackbird's song. Rebecca Utting’s fun illustrations bring Ian Munro’s story to life in an authentic kiwi backyard, complete with resident kurī, ngeru, manu panga and pēpepe. Piripi Walker’s literal translation keeps the words simple and clear, so each sentence flows when delivered aloud. This Dog that is my dog digs up worms for me. Ko Tēnei Kurī, arā, taku kurī he kurī keri toke māku.

From the smallest specks of life to the largest creatures, this engaging picture book shows the many shapes and forms life takes all around us. What is life? It’s constantly moving, growing, reproducing, and dying. It’s happening now, all the time, and it’s everywhere around us. From little helicopter seed pods that float through the air to blue whales in the ocean, the world is filled with all different types of odd and familiar kinds of life. This whimsical picture book helps young readers see the connections between all living things. Author and illustrator Christian Borstlap’s furry, feathery, smooth, and spiky creatures crawl, eat, growl, fly, and interact with one another. While most of his creations are imaginary animals, they all depict real things that organisms must do to survive and thrive. Bold and quirky illustrations tug at kids’ imaginations and help demonstrate complex concepts that can be hard to put into words. The book leaves lots of room for discussion and for new discoveries with each reading.
