Maisie had an exciting World Book Day last Thursday! She headed over to Blackwell’s in Edinburgh to check out what books she could get with her £1 voucher! If you didn’t know about World Book Day, it is a charity event that happens annually and is sponsored by the National Book Tokens Ltd. The charity allows every child in full-time education in the UK and Ireland to get a book £1 token that they can redeem in local bookstores for a brand new book.
Over 1.2 million children redeemed book tokens last year and this year Maisie was one of them! There were so many books to choose from, Maisie was spoilt for choice! Thanks to the helpful staff at Blackwell’s, Maisie picked her friend Douglas’s book ‘Hello, Hugless Douglas!’ by David Melling. Maisie tweeted all about her fun day over on her twitter page and so did her friends Blackwell’s.
You can still trade your £1 token in at participating bookstores until the 30th of March! For more information about World Book Day check out their website here.
