Synopsis

Julia Donaldson celebrates her readers in this delightful and imaginative picture book, inspired by the children she has met at hundreds of book signings over the years.

I've signed for boys called Romeo
and girls called Juliet .
I've signed for Roman, Saxon, Dane-
Though not for Norman yet.


From months of the year, colours, flowers, food and gemstones, Julia has seamlessly grouped together a charming selection of children's names and woven them together in her unmistakable rhyming style.

Set in a magical transforming bookshop, Julia Donaldson's Book of Names is a love letter to the world of books and young bookworms – illustrated by the award-winning Nila Aye.

Readers will enjoy trying to find their own name, and even if it isn't included, there is a special dedicated space for them to add it, or even better, for Julia to sign!
