Have you seen our Shine-a-Light series yet?
Pair these with a small flashlight and these make fantastic gifts. Each right-hand page has hidden secrets that can be discovered by shining your flashlight behind the page. What fun you’ll have gathering round at bedtime to discover the hidden pictures!
Children love learning about the habitats hidden in the foliage, a tree trunk, or underground. Train lovers and fans of construction vehicles get to see the inner workings normally hidden from sight. Get one or invest in several. Your kids are going to love these!
Our Shine-a-Light books are a great big hit with kids from ages 4-8. As you read the story they get to shine a flashlight behind every right-side page to reveal the hidden secrets of nature. What fun!
Let your kids guess what they’ll find hiding in each illustration. They won’t easily forget what they learn about habitats, tide pools, and tree trunks. Pair these titles with a small flashlight for a delightful birthday gift or a special treat for overnights at a grandparent’s house. Purchase one or purchase several in the Shine-a-Light series.

BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR
“A diverting interactive introduction to several coastal species, from otters to oystercatchers.” – Publishers Weekly
Told from the girl’s perpective and then the beast’s, A Tale of Two Beasts depicts what happens when a little girl rescues a strange beast from the woods. This wonderfully entertaining tale introduces children to the idea that every story has two sides and it’s important to consider the other side too. This is fantastic for reading aloud and for reading in groups as well.
Here’s a new one called Secrets of the Seashore for all your spring and summer beach vacations (and to remind you of past vacations). This one’s just like Secrets of the Apple Tree but you get to see the hidden habitats of the seas and oceans instead. These make great gifts when paired with small flashlights to shine through the pages. Enjoy these with the favorite people in your life and share loving reading experiences that will encourage your child’s natural curiosity and love of learning.
Duck in the Truck (published in 1999) heralded the start of another bestselling series, this time featuring the irrepressible Duck and his three friends – Frog, Goat and Sheep. There are currently nine books in the Duck series and 1.2 million copies have been sold.
In 2000 Jez created Hug – a powerful and touching book of only three words about a baby chimpanzee called Bobo who loses his Mom. Oprah Winfrey raved about it on her show when she chose it for her recommended reading list while Richard Curtis (the writer and director of Four Weddings and a Funeral) selected it as one of his ‘Best Books’, calling it ‘classic family drama which holds up well next to Jez’s other masterpieces.’ Bobo went on to star in two more classics; Tall ( which along with Hug won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award ) and Yes. The series has sold 1.76 million copies.
Jez’s latest publication is Nat the Cat’s Sunny Smile, the first book in a new rhyming series featuring Billy the Goat and Hugo the Hare. You can share Nat the Cat’s journey from idea to publication in his Nat the Cat Blog and Billy’s in his Billy the Goat Blog.
Jez lives in West London and is a keen musician and music lover.
