Stories, stories everywhere.

The past two weekends have been packed full of stories here at Chicken and Frog, and beyond.

We rounded off Independent Bookshop Week with a visit from local author Josie Dom and illustrator, Nic  Phine. Josie and Nic shared their delightful book, Lum, with a group of enthusiastic children. They also lead the group through a drawing exercise, inspired by (not so) scary monsters.


Joise and Nic have left behind signed copies of Lum, so pop in for yours before they sell out!

This Saturday, we were joined by Sade Fadipe, who shared her beautiful book, A Fun ABC. The illustrations and text marry perfectly together to breath life into the ABC. There’s so much to see, you could spend an age just studying each page.

We love the way that the sun streams in behind Sade.

Again, Sade has left signed copies behind, so you don’t have to miss out. This book would make a great addition to any EYFS classroom or your bookshelf at home.
