Jim Curious : A Voyage to the Heart of the Sea
Illustrated by Mattias Pichard
Published by Abrams Books
ISBN : 9781419710438
This is a stunning 3D adventure book, which feels as though you really are stepping into the depths of the Sea. The story follows deep sea diver Jim, as he traverses the wonders of the ocean through magical coral reefs, sunken galleons and ancient underwater cities. The interactive 3D illustrations make the oceanic encounters jump off of the page and allow you to feel as though you are sharing Jim’s adventure with him. With two pairs of 3D glasses included with each book, it’s great to share this story with a friend. This is a book which will spark discussions about ecology, the threat to the world's oceans and our appreciation and preservation of our beautiful seas. A must for any classroom library.
Wigglesbottom Primary: The Shark in the Pool

This is the second book in the popular Wigglesbottom Primary book series. Featuring more fun adventures from class 2F - the swimming lesson when Joel Jack announced he’d been bitten by a shark in the pool, the morning Gavin Ross found a dinosaur bone in the school playground and the day Jayden King disappeared from underneath a parachute in gym class-this book is sure to have you giggling along with the typical exaggerations of primary school aged children as they seek to understand the world around them. Becka Moor’s simple and quirky illustrations are a perfect match with Pamela Butchart’s drama filled story telling and antics. A fun book for readers aged 5-8.
