In a rare moment of inactivity, the dog rested his head on his front paws. The thick logging chain weighed heavily across his body as he pulled his back legs from beneath the oppressive steel.
His eyelids drooped, and even though his feral mind urged him to remain vigilant, told him he was in constant danger, sleep had its way with him anyway.

In slumber his consciousness freed itself from its bonds, and he revisited an immortal life once known—only to lose the beloved memories upon reawakening. He dreamt of a woman. His brain, his heart, his mind—they all called out for her, whispering of bonds and mating rituals and a shared future that was theirs and theirs alone.

Little Conner was born on the 3rd day of June, to a proud mama cow, one warm afternoon. His mom gently cleaned him, as a good mother would, then he wiggled and wobbled, until finally he stood.

Nobody noticed the egg hatching; the youngster stretched and looked around, feeling small and all alone. He was greeted by row upon row of snails just like him, as far as the tiny eye could see. Soon upward movement caught his gaze: a group of snails was creeping up a nearby pipe towards the ceiling! Moe decided he wanted life to be an adventure, so he latched on for parts unknown…and ended up on a journey much bigger than one little snail could imagine.
Will Moe find a safe, loving—and most of all—fun place to call his own?

Shepard's illustrations, however, which are plentiful in this book and give even more of an innocence to Pooh and his pals. Publisher: Egmont 9 Feb. The Velveteen Rabbit is nearly years old, and yet the story feels so familiar apart from perhaps the scarlet fever part. It's the tale of a rabbit who is loved and cared for by a boy who pretends he is real, and goes on a journey of discovery to find out what that really means. The illustrations are very of their time, in a charming way, and the story is a little longer than most books aimed at this age group.
But in a way that Toy Story made you think twice about throwing old toys away, the Velveteen Rabbit sucks the reader into empathising with inanimate objects and caring for them a little more. Summary: Join Professor Astro Cat on an educational trip through the galaxy. From the big bang to life on earth, this book is a modern take on educational science literature. Professor Astro Cat is like the Brian Cox of children's books, breaking down the Universe into easy to understand metaphors. With Ben Newman's lovely retro-styled illustrations the book will delight young scientists, and likely teach adults a thing or two.
Summary: A story of a girl who loses her sense of wonder and is helped to rediscover her youthful exuberance. A much more sombre book than most of Oliver Jeffers other offerings, The Heart in the Bottle will really strike a chord with anyone who suffered loss at a young age.
Conditioning is not a guarantee
The title of the book addresses the metaphorical situation the main protagonist puts herself in by closing her heart to the world and not allowing it to be filled with life and joy. Her life becomes mundane and day-to-day as she grows into adulthood, and it is up to a child to help her open up her heart. Publisher: Particular Books; 01 edition 2 Mar. Summary: A collection of one page stories about women throughout history who broke barriers and achieved great things. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls is an incredible collaboration between the authors, the women they write about and the 60 contributing artists from around the world.
The tales are a mixture of stories you may know Cleopatra, Jane Austin, Harriet Tubman and ones that are lesser known, or even being told for the first time in this book. They range from Mexico's first female doctor to a transgender schoolgirl, covering a broad history of girl power. Each story is accompanied by an illustration equally as powerful, and combined together this makes for some inspirational reading — regardless of the reader's gender. Summary: Once there was a Fox who lived in a deep, dense forest.
For as long as Fox could remember, his only friend had been Star, who lit the forest paths each night. But one night Star wasn't there, and Fox had to face the forest all alone. The Fox and the Star is one of the best-illustrated books you can buy, let alone in the children's book category. It's like flipping through a series of framed art that also happens to contain an intricate and heartfelt story across its 64 pages.
This is a perfect gift for any age. Summary: Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a magical mind, but is oppressed by her horrible parents. When she signs up for school, she is top of her class but has to deal with her bully of a headteacher, Miss Trunchbull. Matilda is probably one of Roald Dahl's most accomplished and balanced works, mixing horrendous caricatures of the worst parents and teachers with those of hope and delight: Matilda, her teacher and her classmates — who shine like a beacon throughout the book.
Even in its most absurd moments, Matilda still feels incredibly relatable. Miss Trunchbull is the worst teacher you've ever had, and Miss Honey is the best. Everyone should have a Miss Honey in their school lives. Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books; 01 edition 1 Sept.

Unbeknown to him, Harry is a wizard, one who survived a deadly attack from one of the most powerful dark wizards of all time.

Summary: In a parallel world filled with daemons, children have been disappearing.
Lyra, with a magical instrument that can tell the future embarks on a dangerous journey. Much like Harry Potter, The Nothern Lights is a beloved children's fantasy book with huge lore associated with its magical world.

The world is familiar to our own, yet much darker, and the gritty story stars Lyra, who is feisty and smart as she battles the Gobblers.
Publisher: HarperCollins; UK ed. Summary: Bilbo Baggins is a Hobbit who enjoys the quiet things in life. That is until Gandalf the wizard comes calling with a band of dwarves in tow, who are looking for help stealing back their treasure from a dragon named Smaug. The world of Middle Earth has one of the most developed in fantasy lore.
The journey from the shire to the lonely mountain is wrought with trolls, goblins and enormous spiders as Frodo and company are guided by Gandalf. The Hobbit sets the scene for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but it is just as good as a standalone book, as Bilbo faces his fears and trades his comfortable way of life for adventure and gold.
Aimed at a younger audience, The Hobbit is a little more deliberate than its successor, the pacing is better and young readers will find it more engaging. The linked book is an illustrated version, which will help bring the world to life. Summary: The very first outing of Luke Pearson's blue-haired heroine, Hilda. While out on an expedition, magical Hilda discovers a Troll but becomes lost in a snowstorm.

She lives in a strange world that has been beautifully illustrated and has brilliant dry humour. Hilda and the Troll is the first in the series, but there are many more, and the stories were recently made into a Netflix series, which is equally as good.

Not everyone expects to find an egg hatching in their sock drawer, not to mention an egg hatching a living, breathing baby dragon! Jesse and Daisy have always craved magic in their lives, and Emmy the dragon, is tiny, loud, and life-changing in a big way. In the world of Talon, dragons were hunted to near extinction by a group of dragon slayers called the Order of St. George; then the dragons disguised themselves in human form, secretly growing their numbers and planning to take over the world.
