Benjy Bunn's Busy Day book - Giveaway No 4


On April fifth my humble little blog will be seven years old. Seven years of sharing the ups and downs of life, the growth of my family from two grandchildren to seven not to mention a house move and the demise of two pets. 

So by way of celebration I am planning on running a series of giveaways. Some of the prizes I am providing myself and some have generously been donated by various companies. So I have ten prizes so will run one every three days to spread them out over the month.


Today's prize is a copy of Benjy Bunn's Busy Day. This book is not available to buy until May 15th so I am giving you a chance to win it before that. 







Bev Scott Prior first wrote the Benjy Bunn series in the early 1970's to read to her children at the local nursery. The pages of the first copies of the stories, typed by her husband 45 years ago, are worn and weathered, each page smudged and frayed by the hands of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Now in 2018, Benjy has been brought to life by her grandson James Burns, the main illustrator of the series. The Benjy Bunn Books series is filled with old-fashioned charm, wit and wonderful musicality.

The first book in the series is about Benjy Bunn's Busy Day around his home. Benjy Bunn believes that he is doing good, helping his Mummy in the house and Daddy in the garden, however it is evident to the reader that his actions are actually causing mayhem in his family home. Whether it’s preparing food, tidying his room, or doing the gardening, Benjy gets it ever-so wrong. 

We have reviews from young readers on Toppsta.comThe book is due to be released on 15th May 2018 in the UK, and is currently available to pre-order at Foyles.co.uk and Wordery.co m. It will shortly also be available on Amazon in both physical and ebook format.

This book is suitable for ages 4-8 years.
