A very special collection of new illustrated stories and poems by children’s writers and illustrators to support Pop Up’s vital work in schools, and communities.
The British Library is presenting the 10 Stories launch event on Thursday 24th June both in venue and live streamed. Registration is open to all.
A shelf full of stories celebrating difference is a great leap forward towards diversity by UK children’s publishing. Pop Up has collaborated with 20 writers and illustrators ,plus editing and design professionals from 12 publishers to create a wonderful set of 10 books, unique in their style and presentation. They range from books for ages 5 – 11, covering diverse and creative subjects ad themes.
All the books are beautifully presented in hardback with information about the project and the stories, they are so much more than just the book itself.
Books we like especially are…
Mistaken for a Bear ( age 9 and up…)by Philip Ardagh and illustrated by Jamie Beard
That Thing ( age 10 and up) by Avital Balwit & illustrated by Alexis Deacon
Forbidden ( age 11 and up) by Anjala Tiwari & illustrated by Danica Da Silva Pereira
