New children’s books – World of Happy series
New Children’s books World of Happy is the title of author/illustrator Giles Andreae’s new thirteen book series, which includes stories about a tortoise that plays football, a drum playing pink cricket, an elephant that befriends a spider, two lovely wales, belching sharks, dancing hippos and a knitting gorilla.
Each of the thirteen stories introduces a different animal dealing with a different emotion such as love, happiness, courage, trust, manners and teamwork.
Giles Andreae is responsible for popular children’s books including Pants, Giraffes Can’t Dance, Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean and The Lion Who Wanted Love.
His stories are imbued with a brilliant sense of humour and his written rhymes are fun to read as well as listen to. The illustrations are quirky and colourful, and there is always a lesson to be learned by each of Andreae’s characters.
Egmont (publishing house) has created a site to coincide with the launch of World of Happy. Worldofhappy.com contains blurbs on each of the stories in the series as well as extra info about Giles Andreae.
There are also games as well as other fun stuff to be downloaded.
The site shares the news of a world of happy iPhone app that features four mini games for children and adults to enjoy, which will soon be available from the Appstore.
Books in the World of Happy series can be purchased from Egmont.
