Julia Donaldson is one of the most popular authors of our time, and with her magnificent rhyming style and charming stories, it’s no wonder children all over the world have fallen in love with her characters. From the Gruffalo and its sequel the Gruffalo’s Child to Superworm, the Stick Man and Room on the Broom – all her books have quickly become bedtime favourites for toddlers. The great thing is her universal sense of humour and the way the text flows makes them just as good for parents or guardians to read aloud too.
At the Book People, Julia Donaldson has long been a favourite author with our customers and the former Children’s Laureate’s creative partnership with illustrator Axel Scheffler is especially well admired. As we know all our young readers are eager to get their hands on some of Julia’s best novels, we’re selling a 10-book collection for just £9.99 until 31 August 2014 – meaning not only do these picture books work out at less than £1 each, but you also save over £55 on what you’d be spending for them separately in the shops. There’s also a handy ziplock bag included so they can be taken wherever you go.
Sure to inspire a love of reading and highlight the joys of books from a very early age (suitable for children aged 3+), our collection contains famous Julia Donaldson stories like the Snail and the Whale and Goat Goes to Playgroup alongside the ever-popular Gruffalo’s Child and Room on the Broom, which were both adapted into hit BBC animations over recent Christmases. With the help of illustrators like her regular collaborator Axel and Nick Sharratt (famed for his iconic work with Jacqueline Wilson), the books also have eye-catching and bold artwork that will capture the attention of even the most restless young reader. As well as these hugely popular titles, the collection showcases some of Julia’s lesser-known work like Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book and Freddie and the Fairy – books we believe are just as enchanting.
If you know a child who is just starting – or is yet – to discover the pure pleasure of reading and need a set to get them started, we can’t think of a better author than Julia Donaldson. Fun to read and share together, this collection is a dazzling, rhythmic delight.
