The 11 £1 Book stories, read by their authors or actors, will be broadcast online during World Book Day. Available exclusively to schools and libraries in the first instance, and supplemented with a fun quiz about the reading, please visit to find out more and to register to participate. The films will be available for all to see for a period after the Day via this site, so if you're an interested child or parent, please visit us again.
