I have written MANY times about Down the Rabbit Hole on this blog before (here, here, and here). It is one of my great loves: a radio programme dedicated entirely to children’s books, led by unparalleled experts, and brimming with passion and enthusiasm. If I could I would give its hosts, Katherine Woodfine of Booktrust, Melissa Cox of Waterstones, and Louise Lamont of LBA, damehoods on the spot for their services to broadcasting.
The next episodes airs tomorrow, with excellent guests Anna James and Phil Earle – and I was very pleased to see from the Down the Rabbit Hole Twitter feed that one of the featured books will be Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Cat Burglar, written by Tracey Corderoy and illustrated by Steven Lenton!
The programme will be broadcast live at 5pm, and you can listen on the Resonance FM website here – it’ll be available on catch-up from the Resonance FM Mixcloud channel.
Here’s a look inside The Cat Burglar – the second FANTASTIC Shifty and Sam picture book:
