Christmas is Coming….

Books make great gifts

It seems I can’t get on Facebook lately without someone posting a countdown to the number of days or weeks until Christmas. I always take a week off that as it tells me how long it is until Mr Z turns 11!

If you missed the news, the second Teapot Tales is now out and the theme this year is Pirates, Mermaids and Creatures of the Sea, what better day to have a competition to promote it?
