The Paper Dolls (written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Rebecca Cobb)

It All Began When I Said Yes (written by Simon Philip and illustrated by Annabel Tempest)

Sometimes saying yes is a brilliant thing. You can meet new people, discover amazing things, and go on exciting adventures . . . but not always.  When a gorilla named Gideon shows up at your house with lots of questions and some pretty bonkers requests, perhaps “yes” will lead to trouble, trouble, and maybe just a touch more trouble. One thing’s for sure – it definitely won’t be boring!
