I am so delighted to be able to offer UK readers the chance to win this fabulous children’s treasury, A YEAR OF STORIES AND THINGS TO DO by Shirley Hughes.
I have been a huge fan of children’s author and illustrator Shirley Hughes since I first discovered her works nearly 20 years ago. Since that day she has had a chunk of the bookshelf dedicated to her and all three of my children have been brought up with many of the wonderful characters she’s created.
Shirley Hughes has a unique style and talent for making the ordinary, magical and extraordinary. The characters in her children’s stories are just day-to-day people doing day-to-day things but Shirley Hughes brings them to life in a very special way that makes them our best friends, and part of the family. Her illustrations are truly captivating and bring the characters to life in your living room like no other illustrator I know. Truly!
A YEAR OF STORIES AND THINGS TO DO is a fantastic new treasury that brings together some award-winning stories and poems from Shirley Hughes with crafts, games and activities for every month of the year.
It’s a beautiful book that you will want to read again and again. There are some favourite stories in it that you probably all know and love like ‘Alfie’s Feet’ and some that might be new to you like “Looking for Winnie”.
The activities, games and crafts will give you some wonderful ideas to explore with your children all year round, year after year.
We are delighted with the treasury A YEAR OF STORIES AND THINGS TO DO, it is everything you would expect from Shirley Hughes, and it will always have a space on our bookshelf.
