Climb Aboard The Book Bus!

When I was in England in July 2011, I spent some time (on more than one occasion) in the Waterstone’s bookshop in the village where we were staying. There I noticed lovely small reusable shopping bags illustrated with delightful pictures of children and a bus. I purchased more than one of these bags, giving several as gifts. I later learned that the illustrations on the bag were by noted British children’s book author and illustrator Sir Quentin Blake, and even more importantly, proceeds from the sale of the bags went to support an organization called The Book Bus.
