Where to buy them
On this site, if you go to "Shop Online" and then choose "Books" and then choose "Children's Books" and then choose "award winning" http://www.shopinhk.com/home.php?cat=109
I myself usually buy them via Paddyfield <http://www.paddyfield.com> (over HK$ 150 and the delivery is free) or else online from the US
sometimes from the used book seller www.alibirs.com and sometimes from amazon.com. Once or wtice I have had to go to amazon.co.uk to get what I wanted (all the Dr. Xargle books, for example)
I also buy books when I go to visit the USA, and when I am in China I also visit book stores to find decent kids books in Chinese.
In addition to Dymocks & Page One, don't forget The Commercial Press and other smaller ones.

Here are some of our favourites (many of which I rememeber having read to me as a child),
'Dear Zoo,' Rod Campbell
'We're going on a bear hunt,' Rosen/Oxenbury
'Peepo,' Janet and Allan Ahllberg (there are several good childrens books writeen by the Ahlbergs includ. 'The Jolly Postman,')
'Meg and Mog,' Jan Pieowski (there are lots in the serious about this cat and witch duo who get into all sorts of ridiculous happenings)
'Spot the dog,' (again lots of Spot books)
'The very hungry Caterpillar,' Eric Carle (Eric Carle has written many, many books for children and anything by him is pretty good)
'Guess how much I love you,' McBratney (this is a beautiful book)
'Harry and the dinosaurs,' Whybrow/Reynolds
'Can't you sleep little bear,' Martin Waddell

Agree with all the list above (I think we have them all too), would also add Julia Donaldson to the list.
Her books are fab and include ...
The Gruffalo (probably her most famous)
Smartest Giant in Town,
A Squash and a Squueze
Room on the Broom
The illustrations are great and involve so much more than just what's happening in the main story. She also has rhyme books and songs.
www.juliadonaldson.co.uk for info.
Also love the Dr Suess books as they are silly and bright.
I also found amazon as a good source for book info as they have lots of recommended 'lists' that you can take a look at.
