We hope this inspires you to get behind picture books, don’t forget to use the hashtag #GetBehindPictureBooks and share it with us too!

Chocolate Lily Award

The short-list for the 2015/2016 Chocolate Lily Book Award has been announced. Tundra has a nominated title under the Picture Book category, congratulations to Linda Bailey and Colin Jack!

If You Happen to Have a DinosaurIf You Happen to Have a Dinosaur
Written by Linda Bailey
Illustrated by Colin Jack
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 3-7
ISBN: 978-1-77049-568-5
“This playful picture book encourages children to contemplate the ‘oddles of things you can do with a dinosaur’ through a subtly ironic narrative that speaks directly to them. Two-page spreads capture the many hilarious scenarios…. Buried in all the rambunctious fun, the story leaves young ones with a message that can be applied to real-life situations: if you take the time to think critically and creatively, you can make effective and logical choices.” – Booklist
