Celebrating World Book Day with Nosy Crow

FM - World Book Day 2018-8

Nosy Crow authors and illustrators were out in full force to celebrate World Book Day yesterday – despite the weather!

The theme of this year’s World Book Day has been #ShareAStory – encouraging everyone to read with a child for 10 minutes a day. There are lots of resources available on the World Book Day website for everyone who’d like to take part – for parents, schools, bookshops and more.

On Wednesday, Pamela Butchart – author of The Baby Brother From Outer Space, one of this year’s World Book Day £1 books – met with First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon to discuss #ShareAStory – and here are some of the pictures!

And after battling the snow and making her way to London, yesterday Pamela made her way to Downing Street to celebrate World Book Day with fellow author Tom Fletcher (and Education Secretary Damian Hinds) – here’s a video showing some of what they got up to:

And we’ve also LOVED receiving your photos of World Book Day costumes featuring Nosy Crow characters.

Here’s a fantastic Lionel the Lion:

Here’s an absolutely spot-on Princess Daisy:

And here’s a whole class of Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sams!

We’d love to see your World Book Day pictures – tweet them to @NosyCrowBooks, or send an email to [email protected], and we’ll send some prizes to our favourites!
