Good bye October - Hello November!

It is nearly time to bid farewell to the month of October - and what a splendid month it was!

A BIG thank you to everybody who popped in to say hello to author Francesca Gibbons and picked up their signed copy of THE GREATEST KINGDOM - the third and final book in the Clock of Stars trilogy. Can the girls find a cure for Mark before it's too late? Their quest will take them through the door in the tree, and further than ever before, into the magical lands of Nedobyt.

If you would like a signed dedicated copy of The Greatest Kingdom or indeed any of the Clock of Stars trilogy please drop in or call us (01993 822539) and we can arrange postage.

We were also delighted to support Carterton library and their guest, Korky Paul, the illustrator who brings Winnie The Witch and her cat Wilbur to life! Plus there was a Book Club meeting and our Frederick The Fox treasure hunt continues until 17th November so don't forget to collect your entry form from Madhatters.

Another great BIG thank you to everybody who supported us over half-term, although we sell books for everybody and every age it is always a delight to see the bookshop full of children!

One of the joys of owning a bookshop is that I get to go book shopping every week and put together a selection of books to share with you and our shelves are full to bursting with books on every subject from BRILLIANT MAPS to THE GOLDEN MOLE, from TALES OF GREEK HEROES to DOGGER'S CHRISTMAS!

And it's not just our wall the authors are signing! Our signed copies bookcase is full, from Ranulph Fiennes to Gena Davies, from Gary Barlow to Dolly Alderton, can you spot a fav? Don't dally because when they are gone they are gone!

We have lots more to look forward to in November and December - we are in the midst of planning a children's storytelling session with some Christmassy crafts and our Book Bars return on 11th November and 8th December - details of all our events can be found at

I am off on a little literary tour over the next week but the Madhatter team will be hear to help with all your bookish requirements!

Happy reading and we look forward to welcoming you soon!

Until then....Dance!
