There’s nothing like curling up with an absorbing read over the summer holidays. This season, there’s a brilliant book for every child and teen. Enjoy!

Age up to 4

Not a Cat in Sight by Frances Stickley and Eamonn O’Neill (Simon and Schuster)
This is in the great tradition of picturebooks like Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins and There’s a Ghost in this House by Oliver Jeffers, where the words are not telling the full story. On the first page, Mouse says there’s “not a cat in sight” but he’s wrong, so very wrong. Cat is following his every move. Luckily his friend Dog is on hand to save the day.
