We have exciting news! Local artist, Russel Newton, has been commissioned by our good-selves to add a bit of interest to our wall and stairwell. Stairwell sounds very fancy – it’s literally three steps and a handrail!


At the moment the walls are purple and in need of a face lift. As neither myself or Mr Frog are overly handy with a paintbrush, plus the fact that we wanted something more inspirational, it was over to Russell for ideas. Russell has created a beautiful book-themed mural at Holly Trees Primary School,


So we know that he’s the perfect man for the job. In hindsight, this may not have been the best time of the year to start out on such an endeavor, but it’s coming along beautifully nonetheless.

Here’s the mural so far…let’s hope that rain doesn’t stop play for too long!


We’ll let you know when it’s finished!


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.
