Even in this 'heat wave' (which is a bit of a laugh for someone from Los Angeles) hopefully the shop remains a cool destination on Stockbridge High Street! (Added a fan today, just to be safe.)
Children's books have been proving incredibly popular at The Bookmark, even before school holidays start officially. Everything from multiple Julia Donaldson titles to classics like 'Anne of Green Gables' are showing that David Walliams isn't the only author in demand -- despite his domination of the best seller lists. Also pleased that we seem to have as many boys as girls wanting to read real books, and quite a bit of 'gender neutral' choices being made. When I mentioned to a keen 9 year old boy that the Abi Elphinstone fantasy series featured a girl and her cat - he told me that was fine because ' girls have just as cool adventures as boys'!
Bring on the next generation!
