The Lonely Tree

The Lonely Tree is utterly completely and splendidly charming. Originally illustrated and delightfully told.

Stephen Fry

HallidayBooks' bestselling title The Lonely Tree has been created by the acclaimed children's author and illustrator Nicholas Halliday. In this moving and universally praised story we follow the first year in the life of a lone evergreen tree growing in the heart of the ancient oak woodland of the New Forest. The evergreen is befriended by the oldest oak who has lived for hundreds of years. When winter arrives all the oak trees must go to sleep but, of course, evergreens never sleep. Finally, after a long, cold and lonely winter, spring brings both sadness and joy to the little tree.

Enchanting! The trees are the heroes: the illustrations are full of secrets: the message is love.

The Scummage

From the acclaimed children's author Nicholas Halliday, comes another fabulous book! The pampered family cat is upset and confused – he can't understand what this new 'pet' is that's arrived in the house.

 

The Scummage is enchanting! Full of care, detail and imagination.

Joanna Lumley

 

This crazy story unfolds page-by-page as the author leaves clues to what this creature might be. It has sharp teeth, sleeps all day, screams all night, throws its food about and is very smelly! The cat begins to imagine the terrible possibilities, which every parent and sibling will understand. However, it doesn't take long for him to understand..."I love the Scummage and the Scummage loves me. It's not monstrous at all, it's a sweet little... baby!"

 

The illustrations in this book are extremely compelling. The Scummage will help toddlers and youngsters alike to understand the needs of a new baby.

The Times Education Supplement

 

The Scummage was created to help children (and their pets) understand the needs of a new baby and is charmingly narrated in rhyme by the cat and filled with beautifully detailed humorous illustrations. Why not invite the author and illustrator to your event, book fair, school or library?

The Scummage is a fabulous tongue-in-cheek look at the arrival of a baby and is the perfect gift for any sibling with a new family member.

Bigg Books

Bigg Books is an independent philosophy publisher based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Their goal is both to publish innovative works of philosophy aimed at a general readership as well as to add momentum to the North-East's philosophical and cultural scene by running events and attracting speakers to the region.

 

Beginning with their new identity, we have undertaken a complete rebranding of the company. An intrinsic part of this is the book covers and the first two – Philosophy in the Borders and Reality is the Great Unifier – use quirky, red and black block-print typography to create a strong and instantly recognisable series.
