About this deal
We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child. First in a really charming, fresh, funny series starring a STEM-loving, British-Indian Sikh girl and her huge, hilarious extended family.
And now someone is messing with our habitat project - breaking things and dumping litter on the beach. Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. Emma McCann (Illustrator) Emma McCann is a freelance illustrator, sporadic painter/print maker, occasional cake baker, and regular mess maker. I studied illustration at Kingston University, London, and my second children’s picture book was longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2005. Milo can't wait to see the wildlife, Manny's learning survival skills, and even Granny's going to have a go at archery.

Full of gentle humour while addressing some of the big issues that affect many of our children, here is another story which is an absolute delight – packed with fun, written and illustrated with charm and one that covers the excitement and concerns of both a residential visit and the prospect of a new baby in the family. Except, Granny Jas has turned up as a surprise chaperone, and she won't stop showing everyone my embarrassing baby photos. Anisha's personality leaps off the page, completely realistic for a girl of her age and the various embarrassments caused by grown ups in her life that kids of that age can easily relate to. It is also a great book for British Indian girls who now have a central character in a book, that they can relate to. At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills.Omar's mosque is in danger of being closed down, so quick-thinking Omar holds a school talent show to raise the money needed for the emergency building repairs. That's Yasmine by the way, Milo says he can talk to animals, and she's not so happy about the situation either.
We are eagerly anticipating the second book; I hope to hear much more from this author in the future.
The books are fun and entertaining but also encourage critical thinking and highlight STEM subjects, which is a bonus. As you can probably guess, I love books and you can often find me making a fool of myself preaching the good gospel of the library to local school children.
