New book alert! Our latest kids picture book, Empty Fridge by Gaetan Doremus, is released today. We’re delighted to announce it has been selected by Readings Books Music Film as their Kids Book of the Month for August.

Angela Crocombe, children’s book buyer at Readings St Kilda, also reviews the book inside. Here’s an extract from her review:

This beautiful evocation of modern living and the pleasures of sharing by French author and illustrator Gaetan Doremus was first published in France and won a prominent kids’ choice award there in 2010. It has been lovingly translated and published in English so that now everyone from three-year-olds to adults can enjoy its delectable delights!
