If I Was a Banana & A Day with Dogs - two lovely new books for pre-schoolers from Gecko Press

By Alexander Tylee & Kieran Rhynhart - Hardcover - $29.99

If I was a banana, I would be that one, all yellow and fat and full of banana…

This boy’s-eye-view of the everyday brings alive all the wonder and oddity of the world inside our own heads. It beautifully captures the magic that a child can find in common objects and day-to-day encountersbananas, clouds, toys, breakfast, stars.

Each of these simple things sparks a new train of thought, and the result is a gorgeous mix of the poetic and the prosaic which will touch the child—and the heart—in all of us.
If I was a cow I would want to be the one standing over there. That cow makes you feel like there is nothing more important than being a black cow standing on green grass

by Dorothea de Monfre - Hardcover - $34.99

Nine funny dogs live their everyday lives in these pages where you can learn all about seasons, colours, food, town and country, night and day, school and work, and much more—including dog breeds, of course.
Each of these funny and endearing dogs are a different breed and very distinctive character
