Thank you again for the amazing service as always. Have a lovely Christmas
Here's a direct link to "The Cryptid's Walk", adult's storytelling tonight at 8.0 (Prologue for the Romsey Storytelling Festival). Tonight's will be based around Sussex stories: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87227499669
These are stories referred to in https://www.triarchypress.net/piltdown.html
Thank you so much for the books I received today. My daughter is delighted with her signed copies of Julia Donaldson's books, quick dispatch and carefully packaged. We will be back again soon for more!
Amazing service!
Ordered book this morning , delivered this evening!
Thank you Steyning Book Shop.
keep safe, keep well
Thank you so much Steyning Bookshop and Julia Donaldson! Our granddaughter loved her signed book. So glad to be able to send her something special when we can’t get to see her and cuddle.
🐞Thank you so much for the signed copy of "What the Ladybird Heard At the Seaside" which arrived this morning. 🐞

Matthew could not wait for me to read this to him. We loved spotting the Gruffalo puppet show on the beach (with Julia and husband Malcolm on guitar I assume!) and the "Sharing a Shell" reference too. Clever Lydia Monks.

One very happy 4-yr-old. We have "The Troll" and "Tyrannosaurus Drip" to look forward to at bedtime (if he can wait that long!)

📚Many thanks 📚
I ordered these 2 books from The Steynning Bookshop and my daughter LOVES them, thank you.
Thank you for your great service over the phone too. 😀
A bit of inspiring poetry for you today, from a young lad who travels the world engaging young people in literature, making right choices and building confidence. This is his latest escapade!
I LOVE The Steyning Bookshop!! Why? Well, apart from being super friendly and gorgeously full of wonderful books with a great atmosphere and that super comfy green velvet armchair to have a little sit and browse in... They have very kindly been my first ever bookshop to stock my new book Spun Into Gold - The Secret Life of a Female Magician (now with 161 x 5 star reviews on Amazon worldwide!) Who's going to rush in and buy one? It's a page-turning inspirational/giggle/full of magic experience!
Discovered this gorgeous bookshop yesterday at the late night opening and met the super friendly Sarah who encouraged me to bring my new book into the shop. It seemed a huge step to actually put it for sale in a real life bookshop. I went in today and met the lovely Gudrun and now... drum roll, my books are actually in the shop! A real life inspiring story of never giving up on a dream, in my case, showbiz and magic! 97% 5 star reviews and you can find your copy in their lovely shop! Spun Into Gold - The Female Life of a Female Magician by Romany Romany "Raw, honest and beautiful" (the book, not me!) And if you read it, please let me know, I love hearing how it's inspiring readers to change their lives!
It may have been a "squash and a squeeze" but we endured the crowds and Finlay got to meet his favorite author Julia Donaldson. So much love and care shown by all the team at Steyning Bookshop which made the wait a pleasure. Thank you so much. x

Look who just stopped by! Wonderful illustrator Axel Scheffler happened to be down, visiting Julia Donaldson, so they both popped in to sign some books! We now have a scattering of precious *double-signed* Axel / Julia books, including a goodly pile of hardback Gruffalo, quite a few hardback Stickman, and plenty of the new Squirrel's Snowman!
*edit* if you wish to bagsie one best to phone and establish what is on offer, if ordering online mention you'd like a double signed copy and you might be lucky! #juliadonaldson #axelscheffler #signedbooks @macmillankidsuk @scholastic_uk
*extra edit* Many thanks to all who phoned or ordered via the website yesterday and today. We don't have any dual signed Gruffalo or Squirrel's Snowman left, but have a smattering of other titles by this amazing duo, so do give us a ring. It was a very short signing pop-in!
Remember you can still have names added to Julia's signed copies of The Christmas Pine and Squirrel's Snowman if you order via our website.

Back on the road today with school author events! Thanks to @tomofsears and Rob Sears, a dynamic writing / illustrating brotherly duo who were talking to children at West Park and Ferring Primary Schools in Worthing about their new book 'The Biggest Footprint'. With the help of some plasticine and the giant 'Smoosh machine' , they helped the kids get their brains around some seriously Big Numbers and think about our human planet! Much fun and very topical the week of #cop26 @canongatebooks #biggestfootprint #schoolauthorvisit

Today (1st November) is the last day for all our local businesses on the High Street to return their forms, telling us if you'll be open or not on the Late Night Shopping Evening - Wednesday 1st December.
If we hear nothing from you we will assume that you are closed, so you may end up with a stall in front of your business, help us to help you.

It's also the last day for applying for a market stall. We've been inundated, but will select only the best and those we feel fulfill our criteria best. We will be celebrating all that is local so get your forms in now.

A few pics from our event last night with iconoclastic punk poet @attilathestockbroker
A really brilliant evening was had by all in the stunning ambience of St Andrews Church, Steyning, which made for a very atmospheric venue. Attila performed a rip-roaring set, including some early music numbers with his trusty crumhorn! @simonzecpoet did a great job as warm-up poet!

Our recommended children's books for October, as featured in @yoursteyning magazine, are these 3 wonders! The False Rose by Jakob Wegelius is a sequel to his incredible book The Murderer's Ape, and is an enthralling, twisty tale for anyone, ages 8-88, who loves a good yarn. Also has wonderful illustrations by the author. Utterly Dark and the Face of the Deep is a mesmerising and very exciting oceanic fantasy by the ever-excellent Philip Reeve, which will please readers aged 8+, and finally the incredible Locked Out Lily by @nicklakeauthor
is a captivating, and very creepy, at times, but ultimately happy & hopeful novel, brought to life with stunning illustrations by @emily_gravett
Like a fresh new take on Coraline! #booksellerrecommends #childrensbookstagram #readingtime #choosebookshops

Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet author Julian Sedgwick and manga artist Chie Kutsuwada who were talking to students at Ardingly College about their heart-wrenching YA novel, Tsunami Girl. It's a deeply moving, authentic story about Yuki, a half-Japanese, half-British teenager, who just happens to be staying with her Ojisan (grandpa) when the 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit. The chapters are neatly interspersed with beautiful manga panels, which complement the story perfectly. WE HAVE SOME SIGNED COPIES IN STORE! I highly recommend this wonderful book, and Julian and Chie do great school events, too! #teenfiction #YAlit #halfjapanese #ghoststory #booksellerrecommends
