September 1, 2016


Indie Thinking competition winners Wenlock Books talk about the day the Tiger really did come to tea at their bookshop! Pictured right is the winning tweet, and below bookseller Jasmine Denholm shares photos and customer experiences from the day:

“On Saturday 27th August the wonderful people at HarperCollins sent a storyteller and The Tiger to visit us. At 11 am and 3 pm we hosted storytimes complete with cake and a surprise visit from the Tiger and at 12, 1 and 2 pm the Tiger met with customers for photos! We had the most amazing day and we’re so pleased to be able to share our fabulous photos with you:”
