World Book Day

On World Book Day this year (7th March) we ran a competition in all 11 libraries of the Borough.  As part of the competition entry, there was space to draw a picture of your favourite book character and they were so good we thought we'd share them with you.
Admire the artistry, be inspired to read the books from which the characters are taken, and take part yourself next time!

Some of the most popular books - click on the book to check availability on the online catalogue:
Horrid Henry's guide to perfect parents; Francesca Simon The Tracy Beaker - Jacqueline Wilson  The Twits by Roald Dahl  The Wind in the Willows by Grahame, Kenneth  The Gruffalo by Donaldson, Julia  Little Priness - Bedtime - Tony Ross
