      About the Book Lord Myopic is determined to cover Murktown in fog, and take control of its people. Only Professor Plano knows how to defeat him! He is on his way to pick up his Clear Vision potion when he ends up in the backyard of a certain pair of twins! Little does he know, this is the exact place he needs to be to succeed. About the Series Myopia (short-sightedness), device dependency and lack of outdoor activity are public health concerns worldwide. Stories from the plano adventures are based on years of scientific research, written specially to empower young readers to tackle these adverse effects of excessive device use.
      About the Author Dr Mohamed (Mo) Dirani is a world leading expert on myopia, or short-sightedness. At age 26, Mo earned his PhD with the world’s largest twin study on myopia in Australia. His research showed that the environment can influence the development of myopia even in twins who share 100 per cent of their genes. In 2009, Mo led a national study on myopia in Singapore, which confirmed that myopia can occur in very young children, putting them at risk of developing sight-threatening myopia later in life. Therefore, early prevention is important. The Professor Plano Clear Vision Recipe is strongly based on this science. Today, Mo heads plano Pte Ltd, a company with a single mission to help families all over the world manage device use and myopia.

      What if Peter Pan wanted to take you to Neverland? Would you go?

      A contemporary sequel to J. M. Barrie’s timeless classic Peter Pan, perfect for kids who loved THE LAND OF STORIES and dream of going to Neverland.

      Clover and Fergus are the great-great-grandchildren of Wendy Darling (yes, that Wendy). And now Peter Pan wants to take them to Neverland for the adventure of their lives! But Clover is a little nervous—she’s supposed to look after her brother. Fergus is autistic, and not everyone makes him feel welcome. What will happen to him in this magical world?

      Fergus isn’t nervous at all. To him, Neverland seems like a dream come true! He’s tired of Clover’s constant mothering and wants some independence, like Peter and the Lost Boys have. He wonders, Why can’t the real world be more like Neverland?

      Neverland is fun and free, but it’s also dangerous and even scary at times. Unfamiliar creatures lurk in the shadows, and strange sounds come from the waters. And then the mermaids start to go missing….

      In an imaginative and thoughtful continuation of the story of Peter Pan, Susan Adrian explores Neverland with a fresh perspective and indelible warmth, offering a new adventure based on a beloved classic!

      Story Locale: London and Neverland
      Susan Adrian is a fourth-generation Californian who somehow stumbled into living in Montana. By day she is a scientific editor, and by night she dreams up wild adventures that sometimes turn into books. She is the author of the holiday fantasy Nutcracked and two thrilling books for teens.

      With a box of colored crayons and an eraser to rub things out, one child sets out to transform the world. By rubbing out ‘hunger’ and coloring in ‘wheat’, the world can be fed. By rubbing out ‘crying’ and coloring ‘laughter’, the world gets to sing, dance and be joyful. Told with poetic simplicity, this book shows how creative imagination – through the use of color and imagery – can change the world from bad to good. An unusual and deceptively simple picture book that imagines a world without discrimination, poverty or inequality.
      Ahmadreza Ahmadi is one of the greatest Iranian contemporary poets. He has written numerous children’s stories, some of which have won major literary awards in Iran. In 2010 he was among the five shortlisted nominees for the Hans Christian Andersen award. His books for Tiny Owl also include Alive Again (2015). Ehsan Abdollahi is an illustrator and animator from Iran. He teaches at Tehran Art University. Ehsan is inspired by the environment and fabrics of South Iran (where he was born), and uses bold colours and rich patterns in his illustrations.

      This is another simple and beautiful story where a child uses crayons to colour and change the world. Each page the child uses a colour to turn something negative in the world into something positive: yellow turns despair into hope; silver turns drought into rain; purple turns crying into laughter; light blue turns war into peace and so it goes on page after page. It is a message throughout that offers opportunities for discussion at each turn of the page with endless possibilities for children to use their own colours to create their own worlds of hope and a kinder place to be. This is definitely a book I would use for philosophical enquiry and to encourage creativity. - English Association An unusual and deceptively simple picture book that imagines a world without discrimination, poverty or inequality. Beautifully imagined illustrations and thoughtful text give glimpses into the life of other cultures and explore the fabulous colours of the Earth. - Book TrustThis is a story that is told with poetic simplicity, offering beautiful images but also raising questions to set thoughts going in readers' imaginations as a child uses an eraser and crayons to bring happier colours to the world, replacing bad with good. A wonderfully positive, life-affirming book which takes negative topics and turns them into positives. A great basis for discussion. - Parents in Touch A child sets about transforming the world with a simple box of crayons, an eraser . . . and a healthy dose of imagination and creativity. In a story that combines vibrant illustrations and simple poetic text, boredom becomes children playing under a blue sky; drought becomes big silver drops of rain and beautiful umbrellas; hunger is transformed into a lush green field of wheat. This is an uplifting book, full of hope, joy, beauty and peace. - Kids Book Review
      A lyrical exploration of the power of colors. When I Colored the World prompts readers to imagine that silver can make it rain, orange can turn winter to spring, and purple can transform tears into laughter. This brightly illustrated picture book will be a great conversation starter for kids of all ages.
      "I love this poetic book. It is thoughtful and inspiring. The illustrations are vibrant and colorful. They draw the reader into the story. "When I Colored in the World" provokes conversations about how we can change and make the world a better place. I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages." - Story Wraps Blog
      "A beautiful story with simple text, lots of colorful imagination, and a hopeful message to make the world a better place...A nice read aloud for a creative poetry and/or art lesson using colors to express emotions. Also good for a kindness/empathy/global citizen world peace collection."

      There is a ghost in my house. I’ve only seen it out of the corner of my eye, but I think it is a cat, says a little boy in this comforting tale of love and loss.

      There’s something oddly familiar about this ghost cat—it does lots of things that remind the boy of the cat he used to have. The boy’s not sure why the ghost cat never stays for more than a few moments, or why the ghost cat has visited him in the first place. He follows the ghost cat all over his house, until finally it leads him to something new and wonderful.

      Bestselling author/illustrator Kevan Atteberry’s artwork and story strike a perfect balance of evocative and haunting, as well as warm and hugely comforting to anyone struggling to cope with a loss.

      With a few carefully chosen words and simple, expressive illustrations, Ghost Cat captures both the poignancy of losing a pet and the importance of moving on without erasing or forgetting what came before.
      Kevan Atteberry is a commercial illustrator who has written and/or illustrated several books for children, including Puddles!!!, Bunnies!!!, Tickle Monster, and Boogie Monster. Many of his books have been bestsellers, but one of his biggest claims to fame is that he created Clippy, the paperclip helper in Microsoft Office. Kevan lives in the Seattle area.

      * “Digital illustrations in vignettes, single and double spreads offer mainly golden backgrounds with the pale blue cat surrounded by a misty white aura and the young tan-skinned child looking a bit bewildered as he attempts to catch glimpses of his lost pet…. Though the youngster misses his pet, the story is not sad and could be helpful for parents discussing the loss of a pet with a child.”—Booklist, Starred Review

      “Losing a pet is always difficult; finding a new one isn’t the solution for everyone, but in this case, it’s a decidedly happy development.”—Kirkus Reviews 

      “The drawings are reassuring and cozy and the ghost cat is never spooky, instead depicted as a hopeful memory of the boy’s missing pet, up to its old antics once again. This story gives parents and caregivers an excellent framework to discuss loss and grief with young children.” —School Library Journal

      “In a comforting story of memory, longing, and hope, a boy is convinced that his home is being occupied by a ghost…. The heart, it seems, has room for everyone we’ve ever loved.”—Publishers Weekly

      “Atteberry keeps the spreads unfussy—the focus is always on the boy and the cat—in this tender and restrained story…Even the palette is spare: the cool blues of both the boy’s shirt and his cat (outlined in white) stand out atop an orangey rust color that dominates most illustrations. There is subtle humor in the creature’s ability, despite being a ghost, to knock items off furniture, as well as a spread showing the ghost cat taunting a petrified fish in a tank.”The Horn Book
      “On every page, Atteberry poignantly recognizes a child’s deep sense of loss. The boy has toys, books, music, a comical pet fish, yet Atteberry never shows more than wide-open eyes and a little nubby nose on his face, seemingly suggesting dampened reactions: the child still mourns. The first smile appears only in a photo from the past—and doesn’t return until book’s end, when the opening ’There is a ghost in my house’ gets revised to ’There is a ghost in our house.’ A beloved pet never truly disappears, but joy with a new pet is possible, too.”—Shelf Awareness
