Allow me to introduce you to two new books published by a small independent publisher called alanna books. Both books are delightful.
Little Frog by Jakob Martin Strid (Translated from Danish)
A warm and amusing book that reminds you of a very naughty child.
After crash landing through the roof of the Frog families house in a meteorite Little Frog becomes an integral part of the family. All goes well until Little Frog starts to display the mischievous side of his personality. His parent try everything to get him to fit in but nothing works. He draws on his fathers face, melts the telephone by putting in the oven, cuts the telephone cable of his counselors and set fire to his hair.
Fed up of being told off Little Frog storms of in search of a new home where he will be appreciated. Unfortunately he cannot change and is left feeling that no one likes him. But, out of the blue a helicopter appears. The Frog Family have come to find him and take him home. They love him, miss him and want him back.

A Splendid Friend, Indeed by Suzanne Bloom
A highly amusing books with the best version of pester power that I have seen. Bear wants to get on with his reading, writing and thinking on his own but that’s not going to happen if duck has anything to do with it. As Bear tried to read his book Duck wanted to read it with him. When Bear wanted to do some writing, Duck wanted to write as well. And when Bear sat and thought Duck was not going to be left out. All through this Bear doesn’t want to know but Duck is persistent.
Bear is finally won round when Duck appears with a snack he has made to share with his friend Bear.
Wonderfully expressive illustrations that seem to have been executed in chalk.
