Blake's small adventure book cover

But no one saw Blake,
No one at all,
No one saw Blake
Because Blake was too small.

Blake’s Small Adventure

A tale for 3 – 5 year olds.

Living in a pool on the marshes, Blake is lonely and dreams of finding friends to play with. Join Blake as the high tide sweeps him away on a hair-raising adventure.  Will Blake ever find friends his own size?

‘ Engaging young readers is so important and the opportunity to show them the wonder and excitement of science at such an early age is a real treat. This book brings together a whole host of characters, from so many different species, to take the reader on another miniscule adventure.’

Ben Garrod (writer and presenter)

Aggi and the Mystic Boots

An underworld adventure to discover the smallest living creatures.   Aggi really wants to win the Jurassic Cup.  Will an ant be small enough to win the prize?  Or can she find something even smaller?

On the edge of a lake a friendly Stegosaurus shows Aggi the Mystic Boots.  Where will they take her?  And what will she fine there?

‘As a lover of mini beasts, I’ve always been convinced it’s the small things that run the world. It turns out though when it comes to biology, the smaller you go, the more important the organism can be! This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the hidden ways our world works.’  

Steve Backshall (explorer, writer and presenter)
