INDIE CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE MONTH

AUGUST:

I'M STICKING WITH YOU

by SMRITI HALLS & STEVE SMALL

The BA Children’s Bookselling Group has announced is I’m Sticking with You by Smriti Halls and Steve Small, published by Simon & Schuster, as its Independent Booksellers’ Children’s Book of the Month for August.​

 

A gorgeously warm, funny book about everything a friendship can be – for anyone who's ever had a friend.​

Wherever you're going, I'm going too.
Whatever you're doing, I'm sticking with you.


It's wonderful to have good friends to see you through the good times and the bad. But sometimes, friends can also be a bit . . . well . . . overbearing.

This completely irresistible rhyming text by Smriti Halls is perfectly complemented by artwork from fantastic new picture book illustrator, Steve Small.

 

"I am absolutely overjoyed that I’m Sticking With You has been selected for Indie Book of the Month. Indie booksellers seriously know their stuff. They are passionate, discerning and abundantly wise… so to have a Book of the Month as selected by them means a huge amount. Indie bookshops are doorways to wonder and joy and belong in the very heart of our communities. We have never needed them more than we do now. Delicious children’s books and independent bookshops go together like… well… like jam in a doughnut… like arms in a hug! THANK YOU indies… we’re sticking with you!" - Smriti Halls

“There are few things as comforting and as intriguing than discovering an independent bookstore. Experiencing how the owners have used the space and the careful consideration they’ve shown in showcasing the books, contemporary or classic, brings a signature hypnotic quality all its own. When visiting a new city or village, rather than explore the streets, museums and cafés, I have often found myself wiling away the time perusing its independent bookstore, lost in its spellbindingly curated shelves.” - Steve Small
