How to choose from this Kiwi writer’s fabulous store? Don’t. Devour this entire volume, with eleven stories of pirates, librarians, witches, lions, meadows and more.
Best known perhaps for her picture books (such as the Mog series), Judith Kerr has also written this page-turning children’s novel based on her childhood experience of fleeing Nazi Germany.
This novel about an Afghan family seeking refuge in Australia was published in 2002. Would their experience be different now?
The farmyard tale of friendship between a spider and a pig has prompted countless children to say 'no' to meat.
Jack reckons boys don’t write poetry. Miss Stretchberry (his teacher) suggests otherwise. Short and sweet — but what a powerful punch this story has!
Itself a box of delights, this Christmassy story of good and evil came out in 1937. It features such anachronisms (now) as a Punch-and-Judy man, carol singers and a boy called Kay.
A prairie family’s life-changing loss and gain. Biblionado Kate de Goldi drew our attention to this plain and small book. Its story is anything but.

Not the first book featuring the gentle, sea-loving folk who look a little like hippopotami, but the one that many people start with. Jansson, a celebrated Finnish writer, here introduces major characters Snufkin and the Snork Maiden.
Some of us grew up with the Wombles of Wimbledon Common. In the Australian bush lives another set of tidy-upperers, the Gumbles, whose neighbours the Bottersnikes like making a mess. A 1960s gem, now a Netflix series.
