To continue celebrating World Book Day, our friends at Penguin,  Puffin and Ladybird have given us three fabulous books to give away this week – The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, Coco Caramel by Cathy Cassidy and Baby Touch: Tummy Time.

There’s something for all the family – here are a few facts about the book to entice you.

Share, enjoy and have fun!



Baby Touch: Tummy Time

  • Ten minutes of tummy time for a baby has shown to be developmentally beneficial for babies as it helps strengthen their necks, heads and backs and much more.
  • The author is actually Ladybird while the illustrator is Fiona Land.
  • The Baby Touch series has expanded and is continuing to do so, helping stimulate the minds of young children everywhere. 



Coco Caramel

  • When she was a kid Cathy Cassidy used to make comics and sell them to her friends. Once her friends were done with them she used to take them back and resell them because they didn’t have photocopiers then!
  • Cathy Cassidy has her own YouTube channel called Cathy Cassidy TV where the girls from the chocolate box series come to life. Watch it here
  • Cathy Cassidy has been nominated for the Queen of Teen Award three times, even winning it once in 2010.
