New Bright Books for Spring 2019

last updated 07 January 2019


The new year is underway and how better to start 2019 than with beautiful new books! Our talented Bright Artists have been busy bringing an array of new stories to life and we are thrilled to showcase the releases hitting bookshelves this winter.

From adventures that fizz with fairies and enchanting mythical creatures to stories that inspire love for the natural world, there is a something for everyone. We have a magical author/illustrator debut ‘Once Upon a Unicorn Horn’ by Beatrice Blue, the much-anticipated ‘Tad’ by Benji Davies, not to mention the third installment of the hugely popular Lightning Girl series illustrated by James Lancett. Enjoy!
