Riversdale School Competition Winner

We were honoured to be asked to judge local primary school Riversdale Primary's Make a Book competition a couple of weeks ago.  The children and their families were tasked with creating a book of their own, and the entires were FANTASTIC!  It was a really difficult decision, but after much deliberation we chose the wonderful entry 'Dogs' by Brian Picicco in Year 2.

We loved Brian's hand-written and hand-drawn pages, as well as the carefully cut out and stuck pictures.

We displayed Brian's book in our World Book Day window to be admired by our customers and we are very proud to have been involved in such a lovely project.

So well done Brian, and well done to all the Riversdale pupils who entered the competition!

World Book Day...week

World Book Day came, it conquered and has now gone.

I'm rounding off a mad, busy, fun and exhausting week of school bookfairs, author events and meeting new readers, with a cuppa next to a certain Mr Rosen.

This is Michael Rosen's head of poetry hair, made by visual artist Laura X Carle as part of the Southbank's Imagine Children's Festival. Best set of pearlies this side of the river.
