Thames & Hudson is one of the world’s leading publishers of illustrated books with an ever-increasing children’s books list. Here are some of Minipreneur’s favourite Thames & Hudson children’s books this season.

Morris and the Magic of Stories by Didier Levy & Lorenzo Sangio

Morris is a cat with a clever plan. Instead of chasing mice, he’s going to make them come to him. And how will he do that? By reading them stories. But little does Morris realise that his brilliant scheme won’t work out quite the way he expects. If your children love reading and storytime as much as Minipreneur does, they will love this beautifully illustrated ode to reading, and in particular to reading aloud.

I Can Open That! by Shinsuke Yoshitake

This is a humorous new picture book from the acclaimed author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake about a little boy who starts wondering what life would be like if he could open anything he wanted after he has trouble opening a chocolate wrapper. The book reinforced what Minipreneur already knew about the power of being able to do things by yourself and the fun of helping other people do them too.
