This issue’s cover is from J K Rowling's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third book in what is already a classic new series. The first two titles were Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Thanks to Bloomsbury Children’s Books for their help.

Rhyming text of the ‘Splish-splosh/Let’s have a wash’ variety is illustrated by Apperley’s pleasant but unspectacular watercolours of twin bunnies as they get up and go to bed. These board books do not quite work either as straight rhymes or as action poems, and did not impress my young testers. Innocuous but unexceptional.
