    What a great selection. I’ve heard of most of these. They are all a bit old for our household yet but I do want to get the illustrated harry potter book asap. I think it’s a lovely idea x

    David Walliams books are really good! Lamb has the hippo on the moon one. When he’s older I’d love for him to read Harry Potter x

    My little man is a huge fan of David Walliams and I’ve never seen the one you mentioned. Must get it for him…. we’ve ran out of stuff to read. Has your little one read Jack Stalwart’s adventures?
