The Discovery of Ramen
by Phil Amara, Oliver Chin
Illustrated by Juan Calle

"[My daughter] sat and read the book completely engrossed in the contents... she did thoroughly enjoy reading about the history of ramen, and how it came to be a staple for many Japanese restaurants."

The Octonauts and the Frown Fish
by Meomi

"Although the book appeals to young children, it has a wry sense of humour which will also appeal to adult readers... Readers perceive a great deal of this story through the illustrations and not just through the words of the story... All in all, the book engages the readers through its visual appeal!
