Imagine Children’s Festival, Sponsored by the Book People, Big Success

Imagine Children’s Festival has been hailed as a huge success, delighting children of all ages with a whole host of activities. Sponsored by the Book People and taking place at London’s Southbank Centre, the festival saw amazing authors, one-off events, craft activities, comedy and music add up to create a unique celebration of children’s books . Taking place from 11 – 26 February 2012, there have been numerous highlights – as detailed below:

– Children adored Horrid Henry author Francesca Simon’s speech and Jeremy Strong’s book signing also had queues stretching out of the door.
– Comedian James Campbell delivered his live stand-up show for kids to a sold-out Queen Elizabeth Hall and absolutely brought the house down, before delighting his fans by signing DVDs afterwards. He even spared a minute to talk to the Book People backstage and explained why he likes to grow parsnips, along with demonstrating his incredible pancake-flipping skills!
– The Spirit Level at the Craft Pavilion saw Paul Collicutt run his robot-themed workshop in the morning and there was even a baby disco, with the little ones bobbing along in their papooses to songs like ‘Jump Around’.
-The brilliant Jackie Kay read her poems, inviting the audience to join in with her, while the fantastically funny Roger McGough also treated a thrilled audience to drawings of some of his best-loved poems.
-An incredible 90 minute musical theatre production of Dennis the Menace was also a huge hit. With Beanotown in crisis and the grown-ups declaring a war on fun, it was up to Dennis, Gnasher and co to unite and show that kids still want to enjoy themselves.

Books from many of the authors that appeared at this year’s Imagine Children’s Festival are available to buy at discounted prices from the Book People.

Red House calls for final nominations for Children’s Book Award

Online bookseller Red House is calling for members of the public to cast their vote in their Children’s Book Award before nominations close on 20th January 2012. The 2012 shortlist has been drawn up and children can choose one of 10 books to vote for.

The Children’s Book Award, now in its 32nd year, was founded in 1980 by author and librarian Pat Thompson, is run by the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and sponsored by Red House, a mail order bookshop specialising in the sale of affordable children’s and babies books.

The literary award is split into three groups – books for younger children, younger readers and older readers. Voters must rank each book in the three categories and the overall winner of each is then put before a panel of judges. It is their job to select the best children’s book of the three.

Past overall winners have included ‘Skeleton Key’ by Anthony Horowitz (2003), ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief’ by Rick Riordan (2006) and ‘Shadow’ by Michael Morpurgo (2011). This year’s shortlist is incredibly varied and holds some of the best children’s books of 2011, and many of the authors have already won numerous prizes and literary awards for their work in the past.

In the Younger Children category the nominees include ‘Rollo and Ruff and the Little Fluffy Bird’ by Mick Inkpen, ‘Don’t Worry Douglas!’ by David Melling, ‘Peely Wally’ by Kali Stileman and ‘Scruffy Bear and the Six White Mice’ by Chris Wormell. The Younger Readers category contains ‘One Dog and his Boy’ by Eva Ibbotson, ‘Sky Hawk’ by Gill Lewis and ‘Brilliant World of Tom Gates’ by Liz Pichon. In the Older Readers category voters can choose from ‘Grace’ by Morris Gleitzman, ‘A Monster Calls’ by Patrick Ness and ‘My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece’ by Annabel Pitcher.

Lindsay Eyers of Red House said: “The Red House Children’s Book Award is always a big event and we want to make sure that people remember to get their votes in before the cut-off date.

“Once your children have voted, you should remember to take a look at our Pick of the Year, which showcases the top 40 books that didn’t quite make it onto the shortlist. And remember – all of the books included on the 2012 shortlist and our Pick of the Year are available to buy online from Red House.”

You can vote now by visiting www.redhousechildrensbookaward.co.uk.

The Book People Look Back On 2011 And Forward To 2012

Award-winning bookseller the Book People looks fondly back on the bestselling books and annuals of 2011 and looks forward to what’s hot for 2012. The Book People know that books make great presents all year round and that they are particularly popular as stocking fillers and Christmas gifts, especially with parents buying children’s books and colleagues buying cheap books for the all-important office Secret Santa.

Lindsay Eyers of the Book People said: “It has been a great year for the book, with numerous campaigns being started to get more children reading. Reading is one of life’s essential skills and our invaluable selection of cheap children’s books, fiction books and more is built with the customer in mind, and is priced to be affordable for all.”

The Book People’s ten best-selling annuals of 2011 include:
10. Match Annual 2012
9. The Simpsons Annual 2012
8. Ripley’s Believe it or Not 2012
7. Strictly Come Dancing Annual 2012
6. A Christmas Celebration by Avril Tyrrell
5. North – The Greatest Animal Journey On Earth
4. Moshi Monsters: Official Annual 2012
3. Top Gear: Official Annual 2012
2. Peppa Pig: Official Annual 2012
1. Doctor Who: Official Annual 2012

Such annuals are popular because they are very often family-friendly and can be read in manageable chunks after school, before bed, and as a family alternative to watching television. One review of the Simpson’s Annual 2012, left on 5 December on the Book People website, said: “It’s really good, funny, enjoyable. It’s child friendly and an all-round good book.”

The Book People expects classic fiction books to continue to sell well in 2012, as well as celebrity chefs books, boxed book collections and audio books for those who like to listen on the move. With the latest and most popular books available online at affordable prices, the Book People expects the book market to hold its own against video games and the like.

With Christmas less than four weeks away, fiction books and children’s books are in popular demand as parents buy books for children, friends buy books for friends and others treat themselves to classic books to get stuck into during the Christmas holidays.

Authors making an appearance on the classic library blog post include legendary children’s author Roald Dahl and his collection which includes the BFG, Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Enid Blyton and her Happy Days collection, and Roger Hargreaves’ must-have Little Miss collection.

Other classic mystery collections that make the cut include Inspector Morse, and the Crime Classics collection which includes works by Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Dickens. For those who prefer a collection of books from a range of different genres, the Man Booker Prize collection makes the perfect gift, with classics such as Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman and Snowdrops by A.D.Miller.

Lindsay Eyers of the Book People said: “Our customers love our book collections and if grouping a few of the best together in this way encourages adults and children to explore the classics then we feel our job is one well done.”

The Book People offers the latest fact and fiction books at hugely discounted prices all year round.

Which? Puts The Book People Fourth In ‘Best Sites For Books’ List

The Book People, online seller of fiction books, children’s books and more, has been voted into fourth place in the ‘best sites for books’ list and 14th in the ‘Top 75 Online Shops Rated by Their Customers’.

In the UK’s largest survey of online shops, the Book People beat Tesco.com, Waterstones.com, WHSmith.com and 10 other big name brands to the top five, only being pipped to third position by Play.com, second place by Abebooks.co.uk and first place by Amazon.co.uk.

The results were ranked in order of their Which? customer score, which was calculated on current customer satisfaction and how likely a customer is to recommend the site to a friend. The Book People’s customer score was an impressive 80%, with Amazon.co.uk at 88% more and Play.com just 1% higher at 81%.

The Book People’s 80% also saw them take 14th place in the overall ‘best sites’ survey, which didn’t break the websites down by industry or category. Online underwear shop figleaves.com and thebodyshop.co.uk also scored 80%, meaning they shared the same spot with the Book People.

Interestingly Apple.com, one of the world’s largest and most successful brands, only scored 1% more than the Book People, putting them in 11th place alongside Screwfix.com and Wiggle.co.uk.

The Book People trumped brands such as MarksandSpencer.com (24th with 76%), Boots.com (34th with 72%) and ASOS.com (39th with 71%) in the customer satisfaction survey.

Emma Whyman of the Book People said: “We pride ourselves on keeping in close contact with all our customers so that we can continue to deliver a selection of handpicked books that we know they will love to read.

“This, coupled with attentive and efficient customer care, means we can be very proud of the experience our customers receive. It also means we have great foundations to build on and become even better!”

The Book People has jumped from 16th place in 2010 this year and is looking to improve on this further next year.

The Book People Nominated for Prestigious Bookseller Award

One of the UK’s most successful online bookshops, the Book People, has been shortlisted for the accolade of Direct Bookselling Company of the Year in the prestigious 2011 Bookseller Industry Awards.

The Book People is already the proud owner of two such awards – one in the same category as they are nominated for this year and the other for founder Ted Smart’s Outstanding Contribution to Bookselling. Since their inception in 1988 the Book People has grown rapidly and developed into one of the nation’s most important retailers of fiction books, children’s books and more. This latest nomination is testament to the popular service they offer to consumers.

Organisers of the award remarked that the Book People (TBP) had “successfully honed its bringing books direct to the workplace model for 22 years, and added increased digital elements in 2010. TBP has upped its online product ranges to 18,000 lines, which has boosted average order values by a huge 150 per cent. Development in search engine optimisation also helped to raise sales.”

It is for these reasons that the Book People has been nominated in the direct bookseller category, alongside amazon.co.uk, The Book Depository and Scholastic Book Clubs.

Neill Denny, the Bookseller’s editor-in-chief, praised this year’s nominees, saying: “The overall standard of entries was incredibly high despite, or perhaps because of, the turbulent times we are living through. It will be a very tough job choosing the winners from such a strong field.”

This year, a total of 17 awards will be presented at the Book Industry Conference, a black-tie gala dinner hosted by London’s Park Lane Hilton on Monday 16th May. As well as the usual array of awards, this year’s awards will feature two new categories; Children’s Publisher, and Library Innovation of the Year.
