The Book Fairies hide ‘Weirdo’ all around the UK!

Book fairies around the UK sought out colourful playgrounds, beautiful blooms and perfect nooks and crannies at which to hide copies of Zadie Smith and Nick Baird’s new children’s book Weirdo on the day of it’s release!

Book fairies went out far and wide to find the perfect spots for this new book on release day, and we hope that the lucky finders enjoy their new read! We look forward to seeing some of the books re-hidden after they’ve been enjoyed!

No park or garden was safe…

Book fairies found beautiful public parks and gardens at which to leave copies of Weirdo in order that mini book finders will be thrilled with their new book!

Playgrounds featured heavily too as it’s a pre-school book and perfect for little children who visit playgrounds with their families! The sunshine really helped as there were so many families out and about.

About the book:

Meet Maud: a guinea pig who inexplicably wears a judo suit – and not everyone understands or approves. When Maud is thrown into a new and confusing situation, it takes brave decisions and serendipitous encounters for her to find her place and embrace her individuality.

The charming characters of Magenta Fox, whose work is evocative of Raymond Briggs and Janet Ahlberg, perfectly offset Zadie and Nick’s warm, wry prose.

Weirdo is an endearing story about the quiet power of being different by two veteran writers, and introduces an exciting debut illustrator. Together they have created a picture book that adults and children alike will treasure.

A lucky finder!

The Book Fairies were thrilled to be sent this pick from a lucky finder – this copy of Weirdo was left on the swing!

We hope that everyone who found a copy will enjoy this charming story, and we look forward to seeing where the books are hidden next!
