WORD OF THE WEEK Balatron: a clown, jester, or just general buffoon (particularly a selfish one)

JUST ARRIVED We’re still expanding our children’s collection this week. Chengdu Can Do, about a determined (and very hungry) young panda. Now finds a girl celebrating all the things she can see. Claymates features two lumps of clay, one brown and one grey, who transform into anything they can imagine. Garcia and Collette Go Exploring follows the adventures of two best friends who can’t agree whether to explore outer space or the ocean depths. Also exploring the ocean – all the weird fish it contains and the strange island nearby – is the main character of The Secret of Black Rock. Lastly, we have three books based on the popular TV series PJ Masks.
