We were very disappointed to yet again not be able to hold our Children’s Book Week celebrations this year. Especially as we had lined up such a fabulous group of local authors and illustrators to treat us all to a storytime of their books in store.

We have arranged the next best thing though – Storytime in your living room!! Each of our guests has recorded a special video, which you can view below. These will only be available for a short time, so be sure to celebrate your Book Week at home by watching each one. Enjoy and we hope to see you all back in store really soon!!
