The Children’s Bookshow is an annual tour of children’s author authors and illustrators from the UK and abroad that takes place in the autumn. Our national tour brings some of the best children’s authors working today to local theatre venues and give school children and their teachers the opportunity to hear world-class artists talk about their work.

Our 2013 tour is now over but we will be updating our website with details of the 2014 tour in the spring. Please come back and visit us soon. If you would like to be added to our mailing list please email the Children’s Bookshow. In the meantime, if you would like to see what we got up to in 2013, please browse last year's website using the menu above.

“The Children’s Bookshow gives [children] the opportunity to enjoy literature as an interactive experience and something wonderful that enriches lives and enhances our understanding of each other.”
Ruth Doyle Walter, Armadillo Magazine

“You only have to witness the impact of author events on children to see how their lives as readers (and therefore their lives) can be changed by them.”
Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
