The title ofÂ The Girl with a Parrot on her Head by Daisy Hirst (Walker, RRP Â£11.99) is immediately intriguing. Why would anyone have a bird as a hat? It turns out that Isabel, theÂ girl, has an extremely vivid imagination, which she loves to use to invent amazing games with her best friend, Simon. But when he moves house, Isabel is left feeling lonely and confused and doesn’t want to play those games any more. Luckily, an incident with a displaced wolf and a big box prove the solution. A heartwarming tale of friendship and imaginative play accompanied by fab faux-naif illustrations that your little one is sure to ask for again and again.
