The Wheel on the School
Written by Meindert DeJong & illustrated by Maurice Sendak
chapter book
Recommend Ages: 8-12

Why do the storks no longer come to the little Dutch fishing village of Shora to nest? It was Lina, one of the six schoolchildren who first asked the question, and she set the others to wondering. And sometimes when you begin to wonder, you begin to make things happen. So the children set out to bring the storks back to Shora. The force of their vision put the whole village to work until at last the dream began to come true.

The Ugly Five
Written by Julia Donaldson & illustrated by Axel Scheffler
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-8

A charming new picture book from the bestselling creators of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom!

Who’s that singing on the savannah? It’s the top-five ugly animals in Africa! The wildebeest warthog vulture hyena and marabou stork swagger proudly across the savannah rejoicing in their ugliness - and delighting their babies who think they’re perfect just the way they are. Inspired by the real-life Ugly Five safari animals Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s brand-new picture book is a jubilant celebration of animals who are often rather unloved. The funny heart-warming rhyme is a joy to read aloud while bold comical illustrations bring the savannah spectacularly to life.
