World Book Day exhibition at the Houses of Parliament
To the Upper Waiting Hall in the Houses of Parliament last night for the Opening Ceremony of the World Book Day exhibition. We have been in touch with MPs to encourage them to take part in World Book Day activities in their constituencies - and were also offering the chance for one MP to win £1,000 of children’s books to donate to an organisation of their choice, sponsored by Scholastic Clubs and Fairs. We were also delighted to welcome authors Francesca Simon and Cressida Cowell. A good night was had by all with MPs promising to spread the World Book Day word!
