Tripi Takes Flight
(The Amazing Adventures of Tripi the Fly: book 1)
Lori London
(USA: Lori London Entertainment, @lorilondon13, 2016)

Tripi is a fly who can’t fly, but who longs for adventure! Tripi is different, and special you see; he can talk, read and write – he can even dance and sing! He tries and tries with all his might, but it remains that he cannot take flight!

Written in a rhyming style similar to Dr Seuss and including important lessons about remaining positive in the face of challenges, embracing your differences, and never giving up on your dreams, Tripi Takes Flight is a story the family will want to read again and again.

Cecil and Psalm 8
(Lost Sheep)
Andrew McDonough
(UK: Sarah Grace Publishing, @malcolmdown, 2018)

When Jesus wanted to change lives he told stories. That’s what the ‘Lost Sheep’ series is all about. At the centre of the stories is Jesus. Some stories are about him, some are by him, but all of them point to him. The series takes the spirituality of children seriously but also believe the gospel is fun.

What on earth are you doing? Not sure? Well, leap on a giraffe and join Jesus, Cecil and the kids in this star-gazing, God-praising, a-mazing journey through Psalm 8.
