Tania's Picks: Sensational Picture Books, September 2016

How are you going with your picture book addiction? Still terribly and gloriously afflicted? Good. That makes two of us.

Here are my recent sensational purchases. I try to snaffle them from local bookstores (please frequently harvest books from your local bookstores) whenever I can, but also succumb to online buying if I can't find what I want.

I was reading recently that the children's book market in Australia 'is expected to comprise one third of all national book sales for the first time in recent memory'. Could that be any more happy-making and could we be any more proud of creators, publishers and booksellers?

Grab a cuppa and peruse this latest stash--I highly recommend each and every *one.

*Most of the books you'll find in Tania's Picks are not Australian titles--this is because more often than not, Australian titles are featured on Kids' Book Review as full reviews.
