We’re thrilled to be participating in Independent Bookshop Week for the first time between 18th and 25th June. We have lots of special deals including £1 off every new Where’s Wally book and the very funny 13 Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths for just £1! On Saturday 18th June we have artist Amanda Sunderland visiting the shop from 2pm to preview her first book for children – Wee McAsh to the Rescue! This lovely story of a Scottish Dachshund dog has been written and illustrated by Amanda who lives in the Isle of Whithorn. She will be giving a first reading of the story and will also have games and activities in this free event.
On Saturday 25th we will be taking part in The Phoenix comic book fun with a workshop to help create our own comic book characters. The fun starts at 2pm and again this is a free event.
We also have a great competition running over the first weekend of the national event. The prize includes a copy of the classic children’s picture book ‘Five Minutes Peace‘ by Jill Murphy, a lovely tote bag, a Gisela Graham mug, a copy of ‘The Quite Big Rock‘ by Alan Grant and a Curly Tale Books activity pack.
