A Winged Collective

Polly Pullar's new book
Illustrated by Clare Mackie

Ever wondered about what to call a group of ducks or swifts? A Winged Collective is an A-Z of the collective nouns of birds of the world.

Written by Polly Pullar, each bird section gives the reader some understanding about the bird and why they have the collective noun they have. The humorous illustrations by Clare Mackie make the book fun as well as informative.

You will soon be able to say there goes a Scream of Swifts over the heads of that Raft of Ducks!

The Jungle Book

By Rudyard Kipling and illustrated by Lute Vink

The tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised in the Indian jungle by a family of wolves. He is taught the laws and languages of the jungle by his mentors: Baloo, a wise old bear, and Bagheera, the panther.

However, peace is soon shattered; Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger, has returned and he is not pleased to learn of the presence of Mowgli.

He determines to prove his dominance. And so begins the battle for survival between this young human and a tiger. Personalise your Gift book with a loved one’s name or even your own. Write a special message inside.

It is often hard to find the right gift for someone, especially a gift that is uniquely made for them and will not be discarded, like so many other gifts. A classic story, beautifully illustrated is a great gift - but one with your name printed inside with a loved one's message is unique and very special! It is one that will be treasured and passed down. We use award winning illustrators and the finest materials to create our books. Our products are sourced from responsible sources and have been awarded the 'Made in Britain' marque for supporting British industry.
