  1. My favourite Gecko book is Have You Seen an Elephant? by David Barrow. Very funny, and the illustrations have huge appeal to children.

    Ooh what a toughie to choose just one. For me it’s “Donkeys” – children enjoy it and it has a wonderful message for the adults too.

  3. I have more than a handful of favourites but for now I’ll choose D.E.S.I.G.N. by Ewa Solarz as it’s so rare to find a book about about design for kids. It’s a treasure.

    Thant’s a hard one! My favourite Gecko Press book (for today) might have to be ‘The Best Singer in the World’ by Ulf Nilssen. Nut then, that might change tomorrow!

    Only one? My favourite would have to be “999 Tadpoles Find a New Home” written by Ken Kimura and illustrated by Yasunari Murakami.

  6. Favourite book?!!! NOT POSSIBLE!!
    But I do love “Mr Whistler” by Margaret Mahy – actually I love everything by Margaret Mahy and lots of other awesome NZ authors 🙂

    • I love Margaret Mahy too. I think there’s only one book I’m not fussed about: “A Summery Saturday Morning”. The kids at my local school didn’t seem to be impressed by it either.

    We are fans of “Poo Bum” in our house – it guarantees giggles every night! The sequels to Poo Bum are pretty funny too!

  8. Glynis Dart

    Toucan Can by Juliette McIver …. a hilarious, tongue-twisting story in rhyme and much loved by our kids.

  9. Helen Muxlow

    My favourite is H.O.U.S.E. : habitable, objects, unique, spatial, extraordinary by Aleksandra Machowiak and Daniel Mizielinski, an amazing concept book which never fails to inspire students

    My favourite Gecko Press book is ‘Snake and Lizard’ by Joy Cowley/Gavin Bishop. My niece is also a great fan of this book – she loved ‘performing’ it when she was younger, with different voices for Snake and for Lizard.
