The Lovereading comment:
Age 7+ poetry.
Selected by our poetry expert, Liam Parkin:
When Granny Won Olympic Gold is a lively, humorous collection of medal-winning sports poems that children aged 7 or 8+ will love. It includes plenty of humorous rhymes along with some moving and thought-provoking poems, and features all kinds of writing styles - from haiku to limericks.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
