MARVELLOUS MUMMY

an ode to all mothers.

Written by Katie Poli

From brave to being silly, Mummy makes every moment special.

Marvellous Mummy is an inspiring book. It not only celebrates the gentle, caring side of motherhood, but also the fiercely protective side of motherhood. It’s a feel-good picture book that hits you in the heart with an explosion of warm fuzzy feelings.

Young MacDonald is one rollicking ride that embraces imagination in the most playful and exuberant way. Kids will love the sing-along familiarity of this tale and like me no doubt, will have little trouble accepting the beautiful reality of living out your fantasies. Poli’s debut attempt at authoring and illustrating a picture book is a positive combination of explosive colour and creative word play that creates plenty of literal and metaphysical movement making it real joy to read. A fun, shared reading experience for toddlers and pre-schoolers and anyone who wishes their bike was really a horse, as I did.

YOUNG MACDONALD

for young kids who love adventure

By Giuseppe Poli

In this fun twist on an old favourite, Young MacDonald's vivid imagination transforms an otherwise ordinary day on the farm into his grandest adventure yet...

Children will enjoy this bright and happy book as they join in the choruses of digging and splashing and chopper-ing and burbling and zooming. I’m sure it will be a favourite go-to book for young children, requested to be read over and over again.

BABY BAND

written by Diane Jackson Hill

On a normal day, a baby creates mayhem in an apartment block.

Diane Jacksons words express her passion for music, and its ability to soothe the soul.

Giuseppe Poli brings to life the musical theme in the book, transforming an apartment block into a vibrant community.

absolutely stunning

OLIVER'S GRUMBLES

written by Yvonne Mes

Oliver is a happy little boy, until one day he wakes up with Grumbles in his head…. and Grumbles IN HIS BED!!

The Grumbles dance on Oliver’s chest, tug at his ears and cause all sorts of trouble for him, but when they run away with his snuggle blanket it’s the last straw!

Will Oliver work out a way to tame those terrible Grumbles?

…a delightfully close up and personal look at dealing with emotions such as anger and frustration. And, a reminder to us all that, sometimes to change everything, you simply need to change your attitude...The many subtleties of both text and drawings make this a winner for me. Recommended for grumbles under 10 or anyone having one of ‘those’ days.

FEARLESS WITH DAD

written by Cori Brooke

A little boy’s lovable celebration of the endless possibilities and adventures he has with his dad.

… It should be found in schools, libraries, and homes, for although it is a boy and his dad, the message is clear. All we need is encouragement and someone to believe that we can, so we can also believe it ourselves.
— Buzz Words review
....the perfect read-aloud title or a beautiful bedtime book, read by a dad of course.
— Children's Books Daily
...a lovely read for a father and son at any time of the year!

HOOTIE THE CUTIE

written by Michelle Worthington

A magical tale about a brave little owl in an enchanted wood who proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes

…Hootie the Cutie is sweet and heart warming. It hides several layers of truth beneath its gentle text. Giuseppe Poli also does something a little magical in his illustrations. I have never seen characters in shades of brown that look so soft and even the darkest of pages seem to vibrate with a warmth and light...

This seemingly simple tale of courage and fear is as much a story for parents (if not more) than it is for children.
