Andy Stanbton, author of the Mr Gum books, has helped relaunch The Viilage Bookshop in Woodford Green, which is under new ownership since December. The shop’s website seems also be getting ready for a relaunch, as it is currently posting an ‘Under Cosntruction’ message.
A 30-year-old bookshop had its official re-launch on Saturday with a visit from a well-known children’s author.
The Village Bookshop, in High Road, Woodford Green, changed hands in December and is now owned by ex-lawyer Saba Rais, who is hosting a range of children’s literature events throughout the year.
Parents and children queued outside the shop for a book signing with children’s author Andy Stanton, author of the Mr Gum children’s series.
