Watch him wiggle

See him squirm

Hip-hip hooray for Superworm


Help! Disaster! Baby Toad

…has hopped onto a major road!

Quick! Whatever can we do?

Look! A Superworm lasso






Watch him wiggle

See him squirm

Hip-hip hooray for Superworm


Bee is feeling bored today

She needs a nice new game to play

Cheer up, Bee

No need to mope

It’s Superworm, the skipping rope!






Watch him wiggle

See him squirm

Hip-hip hooray for Superworm!

Sophie’s BookTube

Reading anything – and everything – from young adult fiction to crime thrillers and celebrity cookbooks, Sophie is a new, charismatic book vlogger who is already admired for her frank and straight-talking approach to book reviews. Fair, insightful and always capable of provoking great discussion around books old and new, Sophie is a BookTuber whose opinion can always be trusted. Usually uploading two or three videos a week, Sophie’s BookTube channel on the Book People’s YouTube is a must for any reader!

Dipping into all the elements of the BookTube community, including bookshelf tours, readathons and the BookTubeathon, Sarah really knows her stuff. A huge fan of young adult books, she’s helpful, honest and informative. When it comes to YA fiction, you’ll want to check out her videos – she’s a big fan of graphic novels too!

Books and Quills

With over 105,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel, Sanne is a certified juggernaut in the BookTube community – and with good reason. A Dutch girl who moved to London and works for Hot Key Books, Sanne’s book review videos are fresh, funny and enlightening. She always manages to put her own twist on the literature topics she covers in her videos and communicate her thoughts in new and exciting ways. At the Book People, we particularly love her Read It First videos, which review books before their film adaptations are released.

Jean Bookishthoughts

Describing herself as a ‘part-time YouTuber’ and ‘Imaginary Dragon’, book lover Jean Menzies’ YouTube videos are fantastically varied as she delves into all kinds of fiction genres. Her great reviews of chick-lit, romance, young adult books and fantasy are testament to her passion for reading and her reviews will certainly help you make the right choice when deciding on which new book to buy next. She’s very active on Twitter (https://twitter.com/JeansThoughts) too!


A very creative individual and a Photography student, Amy’s passion for books and reading comes through in every YouTube book review that she posts. She leads great discussion and you can trust her to provide informed recommendations for books to read.

Hosting a rapidly growing YouTube channel, Charlotte recently ran an under-hyped books readathon, which encouraged BookTubers to read books that weren’t widely talked about. This was – naturally – a huge success and from this she has gained a great reputation within the BookTube community. One to watch!


Incredibly mature beyond her years, Ellen posts highly in-depth book reviews, some on books that tackle very serious themes. Look out for her Bookshelf Tour video, which is one of the best of its kind on YouTube.


The only male featured on our list of best YouTube book reviewers, jessethereader is a fantastically bright and vivacious character – who reads a lot! A big fan of dystopian YA fiction, Jesse’s book vlog oozes humour and light-heartedness. Great to watch

The Book People on YouTube – Ultimate Top 5 Book Heroes

Who’s your favourite hero from literature? Books are full of wonderfully inspiring characters, from the flawed anti-heroes of Holden Caulfield, Raoul Duke and Artemis Fowl to more everyman types like Atticus Finch and Alex Cross  and then the reluctant heroes like Katniss Everdeen and Tris Prior who appear in dystopian young adult fiction. You also have fantastical characters from the minds of Roald Dahl, George R. R. Martin and Terry Pratchett, or those who appeared in text written by everyone from William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens to Stephen King and David Walliams. No matter what genre, adult or children’s books – a strong character can live with you for a lifetime…

One of our latest videos on YouTube finds our resident BookTuber Sophie describing her favourite five characters of all time, covering characters from the likes of Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, Fredrick Backman’s A Man Called Ove, Louise Rennison’s Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging series and J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series – but maybe not the boy wizard you were expecting. Watch the video, like and subscribe and let us know if you agree with Sophie’s choice(s)?
