I know it took place nearly two weeks ago, but this year’s World Book Day got me thinking about my favourite children’s author and Bird Kids’ fantastic range of book-related gifts.
Growing up, Roald Dahl was easily my favourite author. I read all of his books and adored them, and it’s great to see that this generation has the same enthusiasm for his work. I simply fell in love with this great canvas print when I saw it! James and the Giant Peach was my favourite of all of Dahl’s books, and this print of Quentin’s Blake’s iconic illustration is just wonderful. Its bright colours will look simply wonderful in any child’s bedroom.
First published in 1999, The Gruffalo has become something of a phenomenon in recent years. It combines the wonderful rhymes of Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson with the adorable and colourful illustration of Axel Scheffler, and I’m yet to meet a child that doesn’t love it! This lovely dinner set makes a great gift for any Gruffalo fan and because it’s made from melamine, it’s perfect to take away on picnics.
Another favourite from my childhood, and one I’m very happy to see making a comeback, are the Mr Men books. I love Wild & Wolf’s great collection of matching mugs, and they even have ones for the Little Misses, too. Featuring original artwork and a great quote from the matching book on each one, I have a whole collection at home!
We have a brilliant range of gifts based on ever-popular children’s books, and they’re just perfect for adults and kids alike!
