ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- One of my favourite board books is the clever Rhymoceros by Coat and her new board book will join it on my highly recommended list! It explores homophones, words that sound the same but have different meanings. Using a somewhat resigned Llama to illustrate the differences, this incorporates the occasional touch and feel element, and is stylistically attractive whilst retaining a certain joyfulness and wit. Preschool ages. Lindy Jones


In Janik Coat's much-anticipated follow-up to Hippoposites and Rhymoceros, Llamaphones will feature witty words that may sound the same but are spelled differently - and have different meanings. Like the other books in the series, this one will feature surprising novelty features, including a touch-and-feel element, making homophones an easy and fun concept to learn.
