A poem about names – Julia Donaldson

Children’s favourite Julia Donaldson grabbed us at the Cheltenham Literature Festival this afternoon to read us a very special poem, all about names…

Former Waterstones Children’s Laureate, and of course creator of The Gruffalo and many more favourite characters, Julia Donaldson has signed so many books for so many of her readers over the years, that she’s been moved to writer a poem about it. Let us know if you spot your own name in there – Julia promises they’re all real…

Julia’s latest book is Sugarlump and the Unicorn, which you can Reserve & Collect the book from your local Waterstones bookshop (http://bit.ly/GD5xGR), or buy online at Waterstones.com (http://bit.ly/GD5vie)

To have your book signed by Julia Donaldson, visit our shops in Stratford and Reading next week – find out more here.
