Hope by Sébastien Pelon and Corrinne Averiss tells the story of Finn and Comet, his dog and very best friend. They do everything together. But one day Comet won’t get out of his basket – not even for his very favourite things! The vet tells Finn that Comet needs to stay in overnight for an operation. That evening, Finn sits in his den feeling very alone. Dad tells him to keep on hoping. At night, as Finn sleeps, thousand of little lights appear in the sky, each one a hope from a different person in the world.
Emotional, funny and uplifting, this beautiful picture book is a pure delight from start to finish. A wonderful story that shows children not to give up hope when times are uncertain.
In Ready to Ride by Sébastien Pelon a little boy is told to play outside by his mum, and bumps into an imaginary friend with whom he goes for a bike ride. At first he finds it difficult to keep up, but with the imaginary friend’s help he takes off the bike’s stabilisers and learns to freewheel – all the way home. This funny, feel good book about freedom, friendship and the joy of cycling without stabilisers for the very first time is perfect for anyone who has ever tried to ride a bike.
