Free ToadPig books for Portsmouth schools!
Being local to the area Tomo and I wanted to give something back to some of the kids living in Portsmouth, a city with relatively high levels of deprivation, by donating copies of our new book to the schools they go to.
We recently donated a copy to every Infant and Primary School in Portsmouth (that’s about 40!) The Portsmouth School Library service helped us with the task of circulating the books. From our perspective the most important thing is for children to enjoy ToadPig, no matter who they are or where they live.
We also believe that the moral of the story is particularly pertinent at the moment and challenges us to think about how we might choose respond to what others say about us. It also helps a lot that the illustrations are awesome!!
