book fairies at a primary school in London

London Primary School Children become Book Fairies!

We were delighted to see a sticker order come through from Copenhagen Primary School in Islington, London!

One of our London book fairies decided to deliver the stickers by hand, taking the opportunity to have a quick chat with the teacher who ordered them! Mrs Thompson was more than happy to share her plans to go out with her class and hide some of their favourite reads.

The class gets ready to drop

A few weeks before their book fairy day out (delayed due to wet weather!) the class got together piles of their favourite books and popped stickers on them. They chatted about ideas for where they would hide the books!

Next? The pupils popped on some wings and got out and about around central London to hide their books!

Hiding along the Regents Canal

As their primary school is right by the canal, the class knew this would be a great place to hide books! Here are some of their pics from this part of their day as book fairies.

A gift for shoppers!

These classmates know that the grocery shop is not exactly the most exciting thing to do, so they left a few surprises in shopping trolleys and by the loos outside the shop!

Can you spot the book they left in the trolley?

One pupil hid a copy of Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot (can you work out what this title is BACKWARDS?) and here is the info about this brilliant book:

Mr Hoppy, a retired bachelor, harbours a secret passion for his neighbour, the lovely Mrs Silver. Unfortunately, she lavishes all her affection on another. . . . Alfie, her pet tortoise. Mr Hoppy’s wildly ingenious plot to defeat his rival and win the love of his lady will delight and amaze, involving as it does a cryptic riddle and no fewer than a hundred and forty tortoises, large and small.

Just one book left! But where was it hidden?

This last book (also a Roald Dahl) was left outside the House of Illustration, near Granary Square in London, which up to recently held an exhibition with drawings and paintings by Quentin Blake, who illustrated all of Dahl’s books! What a perfect place to leave this book!

Thank you to the pupils at Copenhagen Primary School!

We loved following their book drop around their local area, seeing them spread the love of reading and the magic of The Book Fairies! We cannot wait to see what they do next time!

Thank you to each and every one of the pupils at Copenhagen Primary School, London!

Would you like to get your school involved?

Becoming book fairies is an amazing way to show children the joy of giving, of sharing and of working as a group! And best of all? It’s easy! Just order some stickers or a Schools Bundle and get started! If you order anything that isn’t the Schools Bundle, please include a note to say you’re a school, so that we can include a ‘mini book fairy guide’ exclusively for schools! We hope you have fun hiding books in your area 🙂
