In the last few weeks there's been a bit of a thaw around here. The daffodils are starting to find their way through the previously frozen ground, and spring is trying hard to put in an appearance... which can only mean one thing. It's almost Easter!

We've a great selection of Easter books, cards and stationery in the shop now, and should you need the odd colouring book, story book, or project resource for kids at home over the school holidays then we've a few of those too. Pop in for a browse!

School Bookmark Competition!

Over the last few weeks the kids from Bo'ness Public Primary School have been hard at work designing and drawing bookmarks for a competition we ran as part of their 'Storytelling Week'. This coincided with this year's World Book Day and the re-opening of their school library. All the entries we had for the competition were simply fantastic and it was so hard to chose just a few winners so we ended up giving some special mentions too!  I went to the school on Monday morning for a special assembly where we heard all about the pupils' activities over the week, and I had the honour of presenting the winners with their prizes - it was a fun morning!

I'd like to thank everyone from the school for their hard work in taking part and I'm pleased to say that all the entries received are displayed in our shop windows for all to see (see pictures below!), and the bookmarks designed by the winners and special mentions are now available in our shop for our customers, and in the school library for the pupils.

I just read this...

It's not a big book, but it's good. If you're a writer (or a reader) it's definitely worth a look, and if you know someone who is, it'd make a great present.
New in the shop this week.

A Fine Four Fendered Friend...

Hot on the heels of the brilliantly succesful 5 star variety performance back in January, Goodnight Productions' next event will be "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" - a screening of the 1968 film, then an exclusive audience participation discussion plus photograph and signing opportunity with Heather Ripley who played "Jemima Potts" in the film. The show will take place on March 14th at the Barony Theatre in Bo'ness, and tickets are available from us here in the shop priced at just £8.50 ... and if you are stuck for a Mother's Day gift this could be just the thing!

Catch up...

Well January and February have just flown by!

We've had a little bit of this...

(Yes, that really is a giant JCB parked outside the window)

And a little bit of this...

(Hurrah! Valentine's Day!)

Plus a huge big pile of this...

(Snow, snow, snow!)

And we're now eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring and some warmer weather!
