World Book Day is back for another year of promoting reading for pleasure, and offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

We are delighted to announce that the selection of £1 books includes Kay's Brilliant Brains by Adam Kay & Henry Paker and You Choose Your Adventure by Pippa Goodhart & Nick Sharratt.
