Royal Celebrations!

Dress Up Dollys and Knitted Princesses

To celebrate the upcoming royal nuptials, we decided to enter into the spirit and put in this lovely Royal London window display. Walker Books kindly supplied us with the cut-out of Westminster Abbey (an illustration from their beautiful new London Souvenir Cityscape) and our very own Holly and Annie put the window together around it.

We've carefully selected from the avalanche of books about the Royal Wedding and we think there will be something for everyone. One of our favourites is the William and Kate Dress Up Dolly Book, which is a perfect way to while away the time until the big day (for grown-ups too!). As well as it's eye-catching cover, this book has dozens of different outfits for the royal couple to model.

For your own mini princess, this Royal Wedding Activity Book from
Scholastic is a great way to keep little hands busy over the Easter holidays. From designing the dress to decorating the wedding cake, this book has everything necessary to join in the wedding fun!

We haven't forgotten about the grown-ups, don't worry! We also have the brilliant new Alison Jackson book Kate and Wills Up the Aisle, with hundreds of her trademark lookalike photographs of the Royal Family, as well as the bestselling Knit Your Own Royal Wedding, a joy for those knitting fans among you.

So however you'll be spending the 29th April 2011, don't forget that there are some great books to keep you company and provide a perfect souvenir of the
historic event.
