Abel S Island. Winner of the Newbery Medal and Honor: a heartwarming tale of one mouse's struggle to go home, with delightful illustrations by the author Abel has been happily married to Amanda for over a year. He has a comfortable home, an allowance from his mother, and no reason to worry. But one summer afternoon, a sudden storm blows away Amanda’s scarf. Abel rushes after it – and is swept away by the wind. When he finally comes to rest, he finds himself marooned on an uninhabited island. Ever resourceful, he is sure he will escape. He tries everything – bridges, boats, catapults, stepping stones – but gradually comes to realise that there is no way out... As the winter draws in, the canny mouse must endure hunger, danger, and the ever-present threat of an owl with nasty intentions. And will he ever get home? Will he see his beloved Amanda once more?

The Real Thief. The charming story of a loyal and wrongly-accused goose, with delightful illustrations by the author Gawain is a kind, honest goose. He loves King Basil very much, and while he does sometimes long for his pond and his prize cabbages, he carries out his duties as Chief guard of the Royal treasury with utmost diligence. But then, one day, the treasure starts to disappear. As only Gawain and King Basil have the keys, and the king is beyond reproach, all eyes turn to the miserable goose. Much as Gawain protests, much as he professes his innocence, it is not to be: he is found guilty. While Gawain languishes in self-imposed exile, the real thief realises that he has done an awful wrong. But does he have what it takes to confess? Can he clear the poor goose's name and restore harmony to a kingdom? William Steig (1907-2003) was an American author and illustrator of award-winning books for children.

Dominic. The delightful tale of a wandering good samaritan dog, by the author of Shrek! Dominic has decided it is time for a change. So he packs up his hats and his piccolo, and sets off into the unknown. But no sooner does he feel the air on his snout and the grass beneath his paws, than disaster strikes: he encounters the dreaded Doomsday Gang. But Dominic is not one to complain - and nor is he one to lose a fight. As legend of his victory over the villains spreads, more and more creatures turn to him for help: a 158-year-old turtle, a heartbroken wild boar, and a family of grateful geese all encounter Dominic's heroism and generosity. But his trials are far from over: the Doomsday Gang is alive and kicking, and how can one young dog face a mob of hooligans alone?
