Celebrate World Book Day with Mr Silly

There are lots of ways you can celebrate reading this snowy and blustery World Book Day.

The theme of this year’s World Book Day is ‘Share a Story’, and thankfully cuddling up under a blanket and reading something with your loved ones is a perfectly lovely way to spend a snowy afternoon – whether that’s on World Book Day itself, or over the weekend.

Egmont have two books in the World Book Day titles list: My Book About Me by Mr Silly and I Have No Secrets by Penny Joelson.

My Book About Me by Mr. Silly is a World Book Day 2018 book for younger readers.

My Book About Me by Mr. Silly

What would you write a book about?

Mr Silly’s story began with himself, but then he decided to include his friends. He knew that if his friends were  in the book then they would want to read it, just like you.

Enjoy this very silly book about Mr Silly’s book!

Find out more about My Book About Me on the World Book Day website.
