This summer, independent bookshops nationwide are blowing up balloons and breaking out the bunting to take part in our Picture Book Party promotion. Over the months of August and September booksellers will be throwing Picture Book Party storytelling events up and down the country, giving away free height charts with Picture Book Party books! We’re also running a window display competition, giving the indie with the best window the chance to win a Fortnum & Mason Celebration Hamper. Here are a few of our favourites so far...

 Chicken & Frog's Picture Book Party, complete with squash, sandwiches and lots of stories! (above)

So party on down to your local indie and join in the picture book fun - let the parties begin!
