    Hello I saw that your birthday was coming up on Childrens books daily (facebook). I am a new author who like many is trying to get traction. I have just released my latest book How BIG is that Bear? which I am proud to say went #1 Amazon AU the other day. I also have my FREE book Sam Sam and Marzipan which I am proud of and that too has done well but like many authors I struggle because I really dont have a data base and NO ONE knows I exist…….ahhh.

    Would you be kind enough to get my FREE book and allow me to GIFT you my latest book – How BIG is that Bear?

      Hello Dan, thank you for your comment. I had a look at your website and your books look lovely. Unfortunately, I don’t tend to review too many book for very young kids as I only review books that I read and love. Even Book Boy Junior is now 10, so the books we like tend to be older now. Thank you for your interest in and best of luck wiht your books. BB
