World Book Day in Dartmouth

It was World Book Day on Thursday 6 March. From opening its doors in the morning the Dartmouth Community Bookshop in Higher Street welcomed parties of school children from Dartmouth Academy,
many of them dressed as their favourite characters. More than 170 children from all classes in Primary were ferried in relays by bus from the school to the shop to choose their free books in exchange
for vouchers, right through the morning. One child was so impressed with the shop that he wanted to buy it, and enquired if £500
would be enough!
School librarian Liz Wilson was dressed as Where’s Wally and other staff came as witches, fairies and other characters. Bookshop Manager, Andrea Saunders, was kept very busy. She said, “It is
wonderful to see so many children choosing books to enjoy – I hope lots more come to exchange their vouchers and to see our wonderful stock of children’s books”. There are 10 books this year, with titles
suitable for children from 5-10 years and favourite authors such as Robert Muchamore and Maureen Johnson, plus titles such as a
Horrible History about Terrible Trenches, Worst Witch, Hello Hugless
