    The winner of Book People's Bedtime Story Competition 2017, Frasier Cox's There's a Boy Just Like Me is a heart-warming tale of friendship between the author and a refugee who shares the same interests and childhood hopes and dreams.

    In 2017, we asked children aged 5 to 11 to write a bedtime story between 200 and 800 words on the theme of friendship. The response was astounding and out of over 1,300 entries, Frasier's story was selected as the winner by a panel of judges that included TV favourite Claudia Winkleman and radio DJ and Radio Boy author Christian O'Connell. Frasier's story was chosen for his focus on important issues and beautiful storytelling.

    At least 35% of the price of the book will be donated to Save the Children, a charity that fights every single day for children's futures. Sold exclusively through us at BookPeople.co.uk, Frasier's book features illustrations from top children's book illustrator Alison Brown and published by Little Tiger.

    Please note that this book is exempt from all promotions due to its charitable donation.

    From bestselling Landmarks author Robert Macfarlane -- a gorgeous, illustrated collection of spell-poems to re-wild the language of childrenAll over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives -- words from the natural world, from the countryside and the landscape. Words like Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn should be familiar to every child: they are the simple, beautiful symbols of nature as seen by a child. They represent a space of discovery and imagination, of play and freedom. Yet this rich landscape is rapidly fading from children's minds.The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of the poetry of nature words and the living glory of our plant- and animal-filled countryside. With acrostic spell-poems by peerless wordsmith Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
