Julia Donaldson Independent Bookshop of the Month

This year Macmillan Children’s Books have a new monthly award to recognise the best child-focused independent bookshops in the UK … and guess what … we’re Bookshop of the Month for April!

Julia Donaldson says, “I am a big fan of independent bookshops. I like the way they each have their own character, with window displays by local artists or creative staff members, and with stock reflecting the tastes and passions of their owners and customers.  But one thing they almost all have in common is the knowledge, dedication and enterprise of their staff.  So I was over the moon when Macmillan Children’s Books suggested this initiative to reward the best children’s booksellers in the UK.”

The Gruffalo will be visiting us later this month – take a look at our Events page for more information – and keep your eye on our shop window, Facebook and Twitter pages for special events, offers and news throughout month!
