A sparkling debut picture book about the irresistible power and magic of stories

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month January 2021

A celebration of the wonder of reading! Mabel HATES books. She gets given loads of them but has no interest at all in reading them. But, one night, the books piled up in her room come alive. The stories jump out of their covers and off the pages so that they can show Mabel their story worlds. She is intrigued by a detective adventure, excited by the chance to board a spaceship and take a trip to the moon, delighted by the thought of accompanying a knight on his quest to seek castles and to duel with dragons. But, there is no way she can find out what happens next in these stories unless she begins the read the books! An entertaining celebration of why reading is such fun.

We were lucky enough to ask Emma a few questions about her debut picture book..find out more!

I Don't Like Books. Never. Ever. The End. Synopsis

Mabel can’t be bothered with books. They’re fine for juggling, standing on to reach high shelves, and even bumpety-bumping down the stairs. But the stories inside? No, thank you! Until one day, the books decide they’ve had ENOUGH. They’ll show her!

Mabel is plunged between the pages of the books she’s ignored, meeting a whole host of characters who will change everything for her, forever…

A gorgeously warm picture book, celebrating the boundless potential of stories to inspire and delight. Sharon Davey’s superb illustrations add warmth, life – and over 1,000 books! – to Emma
Perry’s charming storytelling.
