Na Willa is a bright, adventurous girl living in Surabaya’s suburbs, her home in the middle of an alley surrounded by cypress trees. She spends her days running after trains with Dul (she always beats him), going down to the market with Mak, and thinking about how people can sing through radios. But while everyone else tells Na Willa what to do and who to be, Na Willa wants to be free. She doesn’t want to be “just” a girl, she doesn’t want to look just like Pak, or just Mak. She wants to be both and more.
Indonesian author Reda Gaudiamo has created a collection of stories of curious adventures and musings of a multicultural girl growing up in Indonesia with an East Indonesian mother and a Chinese-Indonesian father. Set in a time when children spent the day outside, listening to Lilis Suryani’s songs on the radio, and when race and gender would still go undiscussed, this is Na Willa’s story as she grows up unafraid to ask the big questions.

The beloved fable about loving your home from four-time Caldecott Honor-winner Leo Lionni.
A young snail dreams of having the biggest house—or shell—in the world. Then one day, his wise father tells him the story of another snail with the same dream. He grew and grew, adding bright colors and beautiful designs, until he found that his house came at a terrible cost. The young snail decides that a small, easy-to-carry shell might be best for a life of adventure and exploration.

Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy found a wardrobe that brought them to the secret country where adventure begins. Lucy found it first at Professor’s mysterious old house, but no one believes her when she tells of her adventures in the land of Narnia. But soon after, Edmund, Peter, and Susan discovered the magic and met Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves; and their lives were changed forever.
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is the second volume of The Chronicles of Narnia series.
These particular illustrations were originally created to decorate the walls of a children’s hospital wall but a specially commissioned text by long-time collaborate John Yeoman has propelled these colourful characters into a book for all to enjoy.
A simple rhyme introduces each exuberant personality and talks us through their assorted talents and tricks, from Philbert’s egg juggling to Uncle Phoenix’s firebreathing. There is lots to enjoy here, with something suitably silly on every page. The Foskett family circus is fabulous indeed, and Blake’s majestic lines, colours and space steal the show again.
Meet Lela – a clever little girl who is also very stubborn. Despite her mum and dad encouraging her to learn a new language, Lela refuses, arguing that dogs don’t try to neigh. This leaves her in a bit of a pickle at an important international party where she can’t understand anything the grown-ups are saying and feels utterly miserable. Lela vows from this moment on to learn all of the languages of the world, one word at a time…
Join Lela on her journey, learning words in Latvian, French, Finnish, German, Spanish, Italian, Estonian, Swedish, Slovenian, Dutch, Maltese and Russian. Filled with humour, adventure and learning, this delightful book will leave you wanting to learn more and more languages.

The story follows a little girl who misunderstood different meanings of words that sound alike, so her imaginations took her to unusual sights as “a king who rained” (as opposed of one who reigned) and “the foot prince in the snow.” Sometimes mistakes make things a lot more interesting!
Hujan turun terus dan Kira mulai bosan. Kan jadi tidak banyak yang bisa dilakukan.

By Lauren Child
Clarice can’t think of a single thing for her project on the environment, that is until her (usually inert) brother Kurt dashes in and delcares that he is going to become an eco-warrior and mount a protest at the proposed felling of a very old tree.
Kira always feels gloomy when it rains. She can’t read outside, can’t play in the park, and has to wear all her thickest clothes.
But one day her friends Ana and Ilo ask her to join them on an adventure outside during another downpour. Kira discovers the joy of all the things that happen outside when it rains – from the new friends she makes, to the umbrellas on the streets, to the thrill of lightning, and finally, the warmth found at the end of each rainfall.
With her delightful artwork and enchanting words, Rassi Narika spins a story of hope and discovery that will brighten even the rainiest of days.
