Se7en’s Celebrities: Zoe from Playing by the Book…

July 16th, 2011 · 6 Comments

Zoe from Playing by the Book chose a Book for each Hood:

As we’re all about books and playing at Playing by the book, my Se7en +1 list just had to be about books. I’ve chosen one for each of the Hoods – books I think kids of their age might enjoy. That said, a great book can be enjoyed by anyone any age so I hope, should the Hoods manage to find these in their library they’ll be sharing them all together!

Playing by the book’s Se7en+1 books:

  1. Hood #1: Toby Alone by Timothee de Fombelle.
  2. Hood #2: The Machine Gunners by Robert Westall.
  3. Hood #3: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
  4. Hood #4: Marcia Williams’ book collection, follow this link to see the whole wonderful collection!!!
  5. Hood #5: Pancakes for Findus by Sven Nordqvist.
  6. Hood #6: Waiting for Wings by Lois Ehlert.
  7. Hood #7: Thank you for looking after our Pets by Tim Hopgood.
  8. And the Se7en +1th

  9. Hood #8: Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates.

Would you just look at this fabulous list – a virtual gift for each of my children… would you look at the thoughtfulness that went into that!!! And can I say that Inkheart is a firm favorite and hood #4 loves Marcia Williams, we all do!!! And all the rest are new… and we will have to hunt them down!!! Playing by the book is really the place to go for anything bookish… trust me on this, you will love it!!!
