Just seen that the local Waterstones is joining in and coloured dolls can be dropped off there. A nice activity to do with my grandson when he comes to stay tomorrow. smile

My 16 year old granddaughter and her friend are busy colouring in the paper dolls. They look so studious, by that I mean the girls!

Loved reading the book with the grandchildren. Paper dolls are lined up across our local bookshop window Mostly Books in Abingdon, ours are still work on progress but hopefully we'll have ours up shortly.
