The Haiku Zoo: The Haiku Zoo Book 1: Lion (Volume 1)
by Mark Watson (Author),
Dunstan Carter (Illustrator)

Welcome to the Haiku Zoo!

Meet Lion, the first animal we’ll visit on our trip to the Haiku Zoo.

Featuring fantastic illustrations from Dunstan Carter and stunning Haiku from Mark Watson, here comes a brand-new twist on the short, Japanese poetry form, the Haiku.

A delightful new animal books series by Mark Watson, author of the multi-award-winning, bestselling children’s picture books “Milo & Ze”, “The Shark in the Park”, “The Travelling Circus” and “The Hairy Fairy”.

Haiku

What is a Haiku?

A Haiku is a very short poem with only three lines.

To understand how a Haiku works we need to know what a syllable is.

A syllable is a unit of pronunciation, a piece of a word.

Each piece is one vowel sound, ignoring the consonants.

So, “Lion” has two syllables.

“Boom” has one syllable.

“Integrity” has four syllables.

Now we know what a syllable is the next thing we need to know is the form of a Haiku.

A Haiku must only have three lines.

Each line has a number of syllables.

The first line has FIVE syllables.

The second line has SEVEN syllables.

The third line also only has FIVE syllables.

So a Haiku has a total of only SEVENTEEN syllables.

Hooray, we know what a Haiku is, when you finish reading the Haiku Zoo there are some exercises to do at the back and some activities to do with your friends in the classroom.

Welcome to the Haiku Zoo…

Milo & Ze: A Bull Terrier Puppy Adventure (Mark Watson Children's
Books Book 2) by Mark Watson (Author),
Pablo Michau (Illustrator)

THE BEST SELLING BULL TERRIER BOOK IN THE WORLD!

Join Milo, the long forgotten Bull Terrier, as he travels the world in search of nothing more than a friend he can call his own.

Milo & Ze is the eagerly-awaited second illustrated children's picture Bull Terrier dog book for kids by Mark Watson and Pablo Michau, authors of the bestselling, "The Shark in the Park". Milo & Ze makes the perfect Bull Terrier gift for kids, dog lovers and bully fans alike.

"Milo is a cute bull terrier puppy who has been forgotten, locked in a kennel, until one night a blinding light comes out of the night sky and smashes his kennel creating a crater that the bull terrier braves his way to peer into and hears a mole who asks his name and the little bull terrier discovers a fallen star: `'Never again need you wish for a friend, he waits for you at your journey's end.' And off our bull terrier puppy goes on a journey, sees a truck, meets Big the Pig who invites him to his yacht which turns out to be a leaky barge but bull terrier Milo jumps ship and ultimately comes ashore to see Big the Pig safe and free.

Milo meets a pelican who gives him a ride. The next ride is on a camel but a sandstorm hits, covers the little bull terrier, but he is discovered by an elephant who helps him on his journey. But more adventures arise - a tiger, a mountain goat, a cavern and finally, the little bull terrier puppy arrives at the door where lives an Indian lad by the name of Ze: Milo finally has a friend of his own.

Enchanting rhyming verse, exquisite illustrations and a heartwarming adventure that simply is restorative and makes the reader feel good. Searching for friends - a great goal and a wonderful destination. Highly recommended for children and art loving adults."

Grady Harp, January 15

Terrifying, funny, thrilling! This new, beautifully illustrated children's Halloween book is available in paperback and kindle versions.

The Kindle version includes links to exclusive interactive content.

Perfect for early and elementary readers.

This book may be adorable for young kids but is also enjoyable for the whole family.

Also fun or to be read aloud, this fun but scary children's picture book has become one of the most popular ebooks ever.

The little boy’s biggest and best present,

was an awesome, fold-out circus tent.

He put it up and played in it all day,

flatly refusing to tidy it away.

In the middle of the night,

when all were sleeping sweetly,

music came into his dreams,

although he slept so deeply.

He tossed and turned and mumbled,

then in his sleep he spoke,

“The Circus is in town!”

And with that he awoke…

He rubbed his eyes and shook his head,

fairylights were on his bed!

On the top, down the side and

along the floor they went,

like softly glowing fallen stars,

leading to the tent…

"What initially appears to be a straightforward tale delivers a sinister twist that is certain to capture kiddy imaginations, as will the sumptuous artwork with its eye-catching detail, richly atmospheric colour palette, and excellent use of light and shade. Kids will be happily enraptured, but be warned: their mummies and daddies might feel icy fingers tickling their spines!"

Mark Hodder: Science fiction author, winner of the 2010 Philip K. Dick Award.

"The detailed, spectacular and vibrantly colored illustrations make this original and gifted story come to life with a special magic. Mark Watson's children's books are a must read for all children."

Jackie Ferrell: Readers' Favorite.

"This is what the little ones want - stunning illustrations and a magical, exciting story. Mark Watson’s ‘The Travelling Circus’ is his best yet, and really raises the bar for children’s authors.

A little boy receives an unexpected present, which turns out to be much more than just a toy. What starts out as pure joy, ends up with a valuable lesson that things are not always what they seem.

One of the most visually exciting books I’ve seen in a long time."

Rick Smith: Best-selling author and publisher.

A delightfully funny fairy tale that also manages to be deep, dark and haunting. This macabre, multi-layered bedtime story features stunning illustrations. Including a cover by the world famous comic book artist Drew Geraci and scintillating rhyme by master storyteller, Mark Watson.

The Travelling Circus is the third illustrated children's picture book by the multi award-winning, best selling children's author, Mark Watson - winner of IPPY, Moonbeam and Readers' Favorite awards.
