National Poetry Day!

How did you celebrate National Poetry Day?

We were delighted to showcase our love of the poetic form with an abundance of activity for And Everything Will Be Glad to See You –  our recently published, inspiring collection of poetry for women and girls, selected by Ella Risbridger and gorgeously illustrated by Anna Shepeta.

A Visit to The Children’s Bookshop

Ella Risbridger kickstarted the day by spending a lovely morning at the Children’s Bookshop in Muswell Hill, London with the wonderful pupils of Sarum Hall Schoolwhere they got stuck in to write lots of poetry together!

Q&A with Ella Risbridger

Ella also recently sat down with UK Mums TV for a coffee-break interview, where she discussed the key ingredients for a good children’s book, and lots more! Grab a cuppa and read the full Q&A here.

Pie Lady Books

Pie Lady Books, online book reviewer, artist, and creator of the Book Pie had the Crow’s Nest in awed wonder as she revealed her creation of the cover of And Everything Will Be Glad to See You in pie form – it’s almost too good to eat!

You can read her delicious review on Instagram here.
