Playing the shape game for charity

I think most of us are familiar with current Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne’s, shape game, but I’m really looking forward to 26th July when Walker Books publish Play the Shape Game.

Play the Shape Game is a collaboration between Walker, Waterstones and Booktrust and proceeds from the book will be going to the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity which supports families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.

Over 40 writers, artists and celebrities including Quentin Blake, Jo Brand, Emma Thompson and Harry Hill have contributed to the book by playing the shape game. The original artwork will be auctioned off online on the day of the launch.

You can read more about Play the Shape Game on The Bookseller and Booktrust websites.

Happy bidding!

  1. Thanks for highlighting this – it looks great. And I’m so sorry to hear about the heartbreak (for everyone) re nursery. For us it just took time (about 6 weeks) and persistence. And reassurance from the nursery staff (who I already knew and trusted). I hope things are getting better for your all.

      Six weeks seems to be the magic marker for settling in. He had a good day on Monday – hardly any tears at all but no eating still 😦 Yesterday was a bit wobblier but last night a flipping nightmare so I think there’s a sneaky molar coming up and he was just not on top form. The nursery staff have been great and his key worker is awesome – she gets all the cars out for him for when he arrives and lines them up (as he likes them – in a traffic jam). Plus, on Milo’s days they try to spend lots of time outside as he is far happier in fresh air. It does make me feel much more comfortable leaving him.

      According to the Booktrust tweets and facebook page, The Shape Game book is coming together really nicely. Looking forward to seeing it on the shelves!
