From The Guardian:
For the very youngest picture-book fans this month, Nosy Crow’s collaboration with the British Museum yields two enticing board-books, 123 and ABC. The alphabet book features stylish photographs of exhibits from around the world, ranging from Japanese porcelain elephants to Austrian woodcuts of oranges; the counting book gives infant curators the delightful illusion of handling ancient hats, dolls, keys and rings.
Fairy Magic (Scholastic) by Cerrie Burnell and Laura Ellen Anderson
Meanwhile, CBeebies luminary Cerrie Burnell and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson join forces in Fairy Magic (Scholastic), starring Isabelle, who uses a hearing aid, and discovers that her silence-filled world allows her to understand fairy speech. A gentle, empathy-fostering story, full of light and flowering forests.
The Night Box (Egmont) by Louise Greig and Ashling Lindsay is a bedtime book with a difference, in which a small boy unlocks a secret box to release the night. Tender and domestic, luminous and star-shot, Lindsay’s illustrations perfectly complement Greig’s soaring, unrhymed poetry, creating a sense of night’s scale, richness and enveloping magic.
