The Scottish Friendly Children
’s Book Tour kick started the new year
with the award winning author Jonathan Meres travelling
to Yorkshire. Since then the tour has seen a host of world class children
’s authors travelling
the country promoting literacy and a love of reading
to children of all ages.
During June the tour travelled to Brighton and Hove with award-winning Scottish picture book author Chae Strathie. To celebrate the success of the tour I have a signed copy of Chae Strathie’s book “The Loon on the moon” to give away to one lucky reader.
Enter below by following the instructions on the rafflecopter form:
This is the Loon who lives on the moon. Every night he collects children’s dreams to make the moon glow. But then one night the light of the moon goes out, and the Loon must go in search of new dreams…
The book tour has been a brilliant success and up next is the fantastic zoologist and children’s author Nicola Davies
. She will be visiting Argyll & Bute this September! You can find out more about each of the tours by reading
the daily blogs written by the authors on the road as well as seeing photos and videos from each tour on Scottish Friendly’s Facebook page
and Twitter account @BooksOnTour. The Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour is organised by Scottish Book Trust
, Scotland’s leading agency for the promotion of reading and writing.
The prize was provided by Scottish Book Trust in association with Scottish Friendly.
