London Book Fair 2012

Today was the final day of the LBF 2012 and our very first time visiting. It was a great opportunity for us to get to grips with some of the nitty gritty of bookselling, as well as a chance to do a bit of networking with publishers.

The experience was invaluable, as it really helped to cement some of our ideas and answered a lot of our questions. The only problem is that we need to build an extension to house the catalogues and fab proof books that we were plied with!

We now have contacts to push our dreams even further into the realms of reality, including wonderful people from Bounce and Letterland who are so passionate about what they do, that you can’t help but be swept along by their waves of enthusiasm.

Our next daunting step is to make choices about the titles we want to offer at Chicken and Frog, but that’s a whole other blog entry…


The independent children's bookshop and tuition centre in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Owned and run by Mr Frog & Mrs Chicken (happily married book-nerds), with the sole aim of bringing high quality books and tuition to our community.
