Check out our new book Alexander and the Curly Wurly Caterpillar by Christopher Quirk. It’s the story of a young boy who has some amazing adventures playing with his ball but gets into trouble along the way!

Listen to the story

Visit our YouTube channel to listen to the author Christopher Quirk tell the story here.

Write a letter

Then why not help your child write a letter to Christopher?

Pop it into Blackfen Community Library and we will send it to Christopher.

If you want a copy of the reply then please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. (Depending on the number of letters we receive Christopher will either write back individually or jointly answering all the questions! Unfortunately we will not be able to post a reply without a SAE!)

Currently we are open Thursdays 9.30am-3pm

Deadline for letters is 25th February – dropped in at the Blackfen Community Library.

We are also going to host a live event with the author, Christopher, when we are able to meet in person again! keep an eye on our social media for details: Facebook or Instagram

“She loves the imagery, she follows the story along and picks up some of the words,” Chris said. “She does often choose it, so I think she likes it.”
