Trick Number Two is a new book from popular creators Nick Bland and Stephen Michael King (their second team up I believe! The first being The Magnificent Tree), and is a magical story about about three little (adorable) wizards who just want to learn magic, but will have to learn some patience first.
Happy Hoppy Home is an adorable story about a family of rabbits who go on a journey to find the right place to live, and who discover what home means along the way.
Papa Hare and his four children all live together in a cramped little burrow. There is no room for the bunny children (Dot, Pip and Pap, and Baby Cottontail) to play and dance and rest. So Papa Hare comes up with a brilliant plan – they will move to a bigger burrow! They dig up and down and sideways, but they can’t find anything that is big enough for them. Until finally, they find somewhere that seems just perfect, but does it really suit them?
Happy Hoppy Home is a gorgeous humbling book about home and family. It is easy to read and the illustrations are so sweet, I particularly like the different characters and how every page feels like you’re peeking into a burrow itself. The bunny illustrations are adorable and have so much character. A straightforward story, that is told with enough charm to be very enjoyable, and features an important lesson that all kids and adults need to remember – home is wherever your family are.
Ash and her grandpa are sitting in a tree when they start talking about leaves. Ash thinks they are all the same, but her grandpa tells that not all leaves are the same, and these leaves are magic! He then shows her the steps in turning the leaves into something special that everyone can enjoy. Once the process is finished and they make a lovely cup of tea, the magic works and it brings all kinds of mysterious animals to enjoy the tea (even a big giant dragon!), all who get something different out of it.
I just adored this book. There is something special about the gorgeous illustrations with the bright minty green and how it contrasts against the black and whites and greys – it’s just a delight for my eyeballs. I love the themes of family and culture and friendship. Afterwards, I had a new appreciation for tea and gained some new knowledge into the actual process on how it is made. I really enjoyed this book, although my toddler was a little hesitant until the dragon turned up, then he was hooked.
