Hi! I'm Rocket!

My family says that one day I'm going to change the world. But every day I like to make a difference - even if it's just something super small . . .

Join picture-book hero Rocket from the award-winning Look Up! series as she explains her ten 'Rocket Rules' for living life in the best (and most fun!) way possible.

From always being curious to standing up for what you believe in, this mini guide to changing the world - one small step at a time - contains empowering and engaging ways for little ones to make a big difference.

Bestselling duo Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola have created this inspirational mini picture book especially for World Book Day 2022.

It's World Book Day, but the Squirrels can't decide which story Duggee should read! Should it be about a clown? A detective? A potato? Perhaps they could make up their own story . . .

Settle in for story time - as told by the Squirrels - in this new funny Hey Duggee adventure.

This mini picture book has been created especially for World Book Day 2022.
