‘Manfred the Baddie’

During the next few weeks all P1 children in Scotland will receive a free book with a message from Bookbug, the Scottish Book Trust’s Early Years Gifting Programme.
This year’s chosen book, “Manfred the Baddie” by John Fardell, won the 0-7 age category of the 2009 Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children’s Books. East Lothian Council Library Services, working with the Education Department and the Scottish Book Trust, will be delivering these books to Primary 1 classes in our Authority.

In addition, from the end of November local libraries will be holding “Manfred the Baddie” FREE events, for pupils. For more details please contact your local library or visit
