A Free Gift of Hope

For all our families looking for comfort, inspiration and entertainment at home, why not dip in to The Book of Hopes, a collection of words and pictures from the biggest and best names in children’s writing? In response to the coronavirus crisis, Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers and The Explorer, has quickly assembled an unbeatable collection of authors and illustrators to contribute to this compendium. Famous names include Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson and Chris Riddell, and it also features many of Strand’s visiting authors, including Katherine Woodfine, Piers Torday and Ross Montgomery. Each piece will only take a few minutes to read, so you can dip in and out each day. And at over 350 pages, you’ll get enough hope to power you through a good few weeks yet. But the best thing about this book – it’s totally free! Just click here.
