New Bright Books for Summer 2019

last updated 04 April 2019


As we start to look towards the warmer months ahead, we are getting excited for the stack of new titles from our Bright artists set to publish this season! Here is a round-up of the wonderful stories on the horizon.

There are some superb sequels from popular author illustrators such as Fiona Woodcock and Sebastien Braun, a dazzling new addition to the bestselling Supertato series by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, not to mention many much-anticipated new titles including Wakey Birds by Maddie Frost and Paper Planes illustrated by Richard Jones.

From seaside stories and jungle expeditions, to lots of lovable animals and a magical creature with a big heart, these titles are united in their joyous storytelling and beautiful artwork, putting a splash of colour into the season ahead.
