Event description

Description

To celebrate World Book Day earlier in the week we are holding a day of events and activities for children.

We'll have a book hunt throughout the town, a children's book swap (a great opportunity to refresh their book shelves for free), activities in the library/hub and authors reading from their books - see below for timetable.

We are encouraging children to wear their World Book Day costumes (because once is never enough for dressing up) and they will of course be able to swap their WBD vouchers for the special £1 books which will be on display in the bookshop.


10:30: Sunday Storytime in the bookshop. (Free but please register)

Bring your little ones along to listen to a reading from a picture book and enjoy some cake.


11:00: Make a Book Badge (hub/library). Free.

Show your love of books with a badge to wear with pride.


12:30 The Umbrella Mouse with author Anna Fargher £2 per child.

A timeless tale of courage, resistance and friendship, The Umbrella Mouse is a heart-stopping adventure drawing on the true stories of animals caught in the conflict of WWII. Winner of the 2019 Sainsbury's Book Prize for Fiction and selected for Waterstones Book of the Month and illustrated by Sam Usher (who grew up locally). Suitable for 8-12 years.


1:30: Make a Bookmark (hub/library). Free

Never lose your place again! Make your very own book mark to keep.


2:30: Fabio: the World's Greatest Flamingo Detective with author Laura James. Tickets £2 per child

This is the third book in the hilarious and stylish illustrated mystery series from the author of Captain Pug. When a tiny plane that Fabio is riding in crash-lands near a remote village in the savannah, all Fabio wants is a pink lemonade to calm his nerves. But the town well has dried up, and the water didn't just disappear on its own! Fabio's on the case, and it's going to take a daring sting operation to set things right. Suitable for 5 - 8 year olds.


4:00 The Adventures of Rolo with local author Debi Evans.Tickets £2 per child

Meet Rolo, rescue Jack Russell who explores and explains history to children and interested adults, aided by dragons! The latest book - Phoenix and the Dragonling - is just out, and there's a colouring book to match. If you are lucky you might see the real Rolo too!
