A Hundred and One Daffodils:
Dusty the fox cub can't wait for her very first spring; Dad has told her there will be a big party if she can find 101 daffodils. That is a lot of flowers! Will Dusty and her friends be able to find them all? This charming story from Malachy Doyle has fun illustrations by Denise Hughes.

Fizzy and the Party:
It's Fizzy’s bedtime, but next door Mrs Crumbleboom and her band are having a party. Fizzy is desperate to join in the fun. Will Mum let her stay up just a little bit longer? The characters from Fizzy and Bandit return in this family comedy from former Ireland's Children's Laureate Sarah Crossan, with delightful illustrations by Nicola Colton.

Let’s Play, Daddy Bear!
Little Bear lives with Daddy Bear at weekends, and usually they play games. But today, Daddy Bear is too busy working. Waiting is so boring! Can Little Bear convince him to play? With quirky illustrations by Andy Rowland, this entertaining story from Dawn McNiff explores a topic children will easily relate to.

Manju’s Magic Muddle:
Manju's stuck at home and she is BORED. She hopes the genie will be able to help her but he’s ill and his magic is even stranger than usual… Can Manju help him sort out the muddle? The characters from Manju's Magic Wishes return in this quirky comedy from Chitra Soundar, with colourful illustrations by Verónica Montoya.

The Gingerbread Man:
An old woman dreams that a gingerbread man will make her happy so she bakes a beautiful one. But as soon as he's out of the oven, he has other ideas! With delightful illustrations from Richy Sánchez Ayala, Kandace Chimbiri's retelling of The Gingerbread Man has a Caribbean twist and a chase children will love.
