Happy World Book Day!

Whatever you are doing today I hope you have time to squeeze in a little reading to celebrate World Book Day.

Here are this year's completely brilliant £1 World Book Day books.
World Book Day 2015
The World Book Day website has lots more exciting stuff on it too.

HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY!
