It's World Book Day Today! Stop Reading Blogs And Go Read a Book Instead!

It's World Book Day today! Well, it is for the UK and Ireland, at least. The UNESCO one isn't until 23 April.

But who cares! Any World Book Day is a World Book Day to celebrate!

And to celebrate World Book Day this year, I shall now do something I haven't done in this 'book blog' for quite a bit.... write a post about BOOKS!

In case you didn't know, every year for World Book Day, several authors are chosen to write a short little children's book that will then go for sale for One Quid (that's about RM8, I think), and this year, the following books were published:
  • Paddington Rules The Waves (Michael Bond)
  • Princess Poppy: The Fancy Dress Party (Janey Louise Jones)
  • Magic Kitten: A Very Special Friend (Sue Bentley)
  • Adventure According to Humphrey (Betty G Birney)
  • Where's Wally? (Martin Handford)
  • Jane Blonde the perfect spylet (Jill Marshall)
  • Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets (Dav Pilkey)
  • Odd and the Frost Giants (Neil Gaiman)
  • CHERUB: Dark Sun (Robert Muchamore)
Yes, Neil Gaiman wrote a nice little children's story specially for World Book Day too! I gotta get me one of those... Hmmm, maybe Kinokuniya might have some... Then again, their March newsletter didn't mention anything about World Book Day also...

But wait... Payless Books did!
