Our Favourite Picture Books of 2018 (The Ones You May Have Missed!) December 10, 2018 – Posted in: Top 10s

2018 was an amazing year for picture books – we got a couple of new books by Julia Donaldson, a new release from Benji Davies, a pirate picture book by Jonny Duddle and so, so many more.

But as much as we love all these, there was also an abundance of picture books that (mostly) didn’t make it on to the bestseller lists, yet are our firm favourites of 2018.

We hope some of them find their way to your bookshelves as well!
