Morpurgo champions internet book club for children

Morpurgo Backs My School Bookclub Website

Michael Morpurgo has given his backing to the online book buying for parents scheme established earlier this year by David Teale (read an interview with him).

myschoolbookclub.co.uk makes much of the fact that "With no magazines and no paperwork we're the greenest school book club", but is it? Rather than schools making collective orders for books and receiving them in one delivery, the concept behind myschoolbookclub is for parents to order books online as and when they are ready to purchase. Good businesss for the Post Office no doubt, but hardly a greener way of organising things. And, for the parents, not really cost-effective either, since Post and Packing is £2.95 for orders upto £25, thereby more than counterbalancing any savings made on the cover price of the books, the vast majority of which are discounted by between £1 and £2.
