Rufus, The Bat Who Loved Colours by Tomi Ungerer (Phaidon)
We are huge fans of Tomi Ungerer and his books always feature on our Santa's list. This one, first published in 1961 but re-issued this year, tells the story of a bat who decides to stay up all day and discover what colours the world is made of. A gem. Get yours here.
This delightful book is the perfect introduction to the work of Monsieur Monet. The first kids book published by the RA, it focuses on the Master of Impressionism's famous garden and is bursting with lovely rich Tintin-esque illustrations. Get yours here.
This funny little rabbit refuses to have any other foods but spaghetti and that's for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Until... chocolate cake is offered. This lovely book captures kids' food fads like no other books! Get yours here.
All this little chap is trying to do is paint a wall, but that's proving difficult with the mischievous surprises lurking about. A charming wordless book, perfect for non readers and budding artists. Get yours here.
