About the The World Book Day Monster
by Adam Guillain and Charlotte Guillain, illustrated by Ada Grey
Anna can’t decide what to dress up as, but her dad knows just what to do to help . . . He takes Anna to a bookshop where a friendly bookseller helps her to pick out the perfect book for her. Now she knows exactly what to dress up as! But when she goes to school in her monster costume, no one knows what character Anna is supposed to be and she wishes she could share her favourite book with her classmates. Can Anna find someone to share her favourite story with and discover just how much magic is hiding inside a book?
This magical rhyming picture book is the perfect story for sharing around World Book Day celebrations or for sharing the joy of reading all year round. Perfect for children aged 3 years and up, this is a fantastic celebration of stories, teachers, librarians and libraries, booksellers and the magic of discovering your favourite book and sharing it with others.
Lost in a Good Book: A Song for World Book Day!
The Snazzy Badgers, an Oxford music production company run by author Adam Guillain and composer Greg Hooper, have created a brilliant song to celebrate World Book Day. Featuring children from Wood Farm Primary School, the song is all about the power of reading and of sharing stories, something that is a big part of our #ShareAStory campaign. Adam commented, “We want to generate as many hits as we can for them and give the children the buzz they truly deserve for such an outstandingly spirited performance. We’re hoping to mirror through the joy of singing something of the joy of communities coming together to celebrate books on World Book Day.”
Anna Neal, the teacher who oversaw the project, added, “It was actually quite moving at points, seeing the children have this opportunity and rise to the challenge…I was really impressed by their level of skill and confidence.”
