It’s a brand new year and Quarto have got some STUNNING titles lined up to start the year with a bang. Firstly, they have a beautiful picture book by Yooju Cheon that captures the beauty and joys of spring and making new friends. In Blossom will appeal to for fans of Philip C. Stead and the Fan Brothers.
One day, a cat and dog meet on a bench. The cat eats her lunch. The dog reads his book. But the sun twinkles, the breeze blows, and there’s something sweet in the air…A sweet, gentle, and poetic story to celebrate Springtime.
After you’ve finished In Blossom, why not go back to the classic tale of Puss in Boots? With Quarto’s Storytime Classics series now publishing in paperback, bring the tale to life once again and use the supporting notes at the back to facilitate further discussion between you and your child. Storytime Classics: Puss in Boots simply told for young readers, breathes new life into the popular story.
To follow up on these two stories, Quarto have thrown in a book of poetry. From the acclaimed performance poet Joseph Coelho and illustrated by Kelly Louise Judd, Quarto bring you A Year of Nature Poems. See how animals behave through the seasons, and learn about the cycle of trees and plants, from the first blossoms of spring through to the stark winter wonderland in December.
And last but not least, Quarto are publishing a story about life, love and especially hope. A Story about Cancer (With a Happy Ending) is an uplifting story of one girl’s journey through cancer. A teenage girl heads towards the hospital waiting room where the doctors are going to tell her how much time she’s got to live. As she walks, she thinks about her journey up to this point… the terrible decor in the hospital, wearing a headscarf, the horrible treatments, but also being with her friends, family, and her new boyfriend Victor.
