Beatrix Potter - The Tale of Peter Rabbit
The quintessential cautionary tale, Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief.

And they'll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the "good" sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime.

Once there, she gently and humorously guides readers along the path of righteousness, leaving just enough room for children to wonder if that incorrigible Peter will be back in McGregor's garden tomorrow.

David Almond - The Dam
A haunting, stunningly illustrated story of loss, hope, and the power of music from multi-award winners David Almond and Levi Pinfold. Kielder Water is a wild and beautiful place, rich in folk music and legend. Years ago, before a great dam was built to fill the valley with water, there were farms and homesteads in that valley and musicians who livened their rooms with song. After the village was abandoned and before the waters rushed in, a father and daughter returned there. The girl began to play her fiddle, bringing her tune to one empty house after another -- for this was the last time that music would be heard in that place. With exquisite artwork by Levi Pinfold, David Almond's lyrical narrative -- inspired by a true tale -- pays homage to his friends Mike and Kathryn Tickell and all the musicians of Northumberland, to show that music is ancient and unstoppable, and that dams and lakes cannot overwhelm it.

David Almond - Half a Creature from the Sea
An anthology of dark, powerful and moving short stories from a master storyteller and Hans Christian Andersen Award winning author, inspired by his childhood in the north-east of England.A diverse collection of stories from the author of the internationally award-winning Skellig, deftly interwoven with illuminating autobiographical pieces on the inspirations behind the fiction. David Almond says of this unique volume, "Stories on the page are so beautifully neat. All that lovely black print; those lovely straight lines and paragraphs and pages. But stories are living things, creatures that move and grow in the imaginations of writer and reader. They must be solid and touchable, like the land, and must have fluid half-known depths, like the sea. These stories take place in a real world - but in fiction, real worlds merge with dreamed worlds. Real people walk with ghosts and figments. Earthly truth goes hand-in-hand with watery lies."

Alan Alexander Milne - Now We Are Six
Now We Are Six is a classic book of children's verses, some about A.A. Milne's best-loved characters Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh and others in a more general nonsense vein. The title comes from the final poem of the book: ___ _When I was One,_ ___ _I had just begun._ ___ _When I was Two,_ ___ _I was nearly new._ ___ _When I was Three_ ___ _I was hardly me._ ___ _When I was Four,_ ___ _I was not much more._ ___ _When I was Five, I was just alive._ ___ _But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,_ ___ _So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever._ However, the author says in the introduction: ___ We have been nearly three years writing this book. We began it when we were very young... and now we are six. So, of course, bits of it seem rather baby-ish to us [...] So we want you to know that the name of the book doesn't mean that this is us being six all the time, but the it is about as far as we've got at present, and we half think of stopping there. The poems are illustrated with Ernest H. Shepard's familiar art, including a few into which Winnie-the-Pooh wandered by accident.
