Patch the pony is lonely. He has fun with his young owner, Sam, and the other farm animals are friendly, but sometimes it feels as if he still doesn't quite fit in. Then one day Sam has an idea and something happens that changes Patch's life forever. Patch and Ruby is a wonderful, often very funny tale about friendship and finding out where you belong.
Grumpy old Mrs Gooseberry from next door has lost her love. 'I didn't know you could lose love,' says Ella, her young neighbour. So she begins her quest to find out what love looks like and how she can help Mrs Gooseberry to rediscover it. Her mother says love is warm, like a home-cooked pie. Her teacher says it's like lanterns in the night, sparkly and bright. Perhaps though, for Mrs Gooseberry, love might look like a little kitten. Ella and Mrs Gooseberry is a heart-warming picture book about a child's understanding of love and how it makes you feel. It's a story of community and the ripple effect of selfless giving, ideal for creating opportunities for discussion about kindness, empathy and helping others.
