Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Award and formerly a teacher, author Rob Starling takes young readers on a magical adventure all about the power of books in The Bookshop Mice. Expect a lot of the same charm and imagination of Starling's previous work, Fergal in a Fix and The Little Island!

The book follows Astrid, whose family has just moved to a mousehole in the bookshop on Maple Street. Astrid discovers the amazing adventures she can have with books and soon shares them with her family and classmates. This is a great book for displaying the marvellous possibilities of reading and is sure to delight young readers.

We are delighted to be giving away a copy of the wonderful The Bookshop Mice to five lucky winners who fill out the form below by 11pm Friday 15th July 2022. Good Luck!
