National Non-Fiction November: The FCBG Blog Tour

Today, it’s my turn to help The Federation Of Children’s Book Groups (FCBG) celebrate National Non-Fiction November (#GNNFN).

The theme FCBG have chosen for National Non-Fiction November (NNFN) for this special 50th anniversary year is ‘Food and Festivals Around the World’, and I’m delighted to share two fabulous titles from Quarto taking you from your garden to your kitchen. Just follow the links for the full review for each title.


The first is Plantopedia by Adrienne Barman, showcasing over 600 of the most beautiful and bizarre plants that can be found across planet Earth.

The second is Chef Academy by Steve Martin, illustrated by Hannah Bone, the ultimate guide to setting up your own kitchen and becoming a Michelin starred chef.

Whether you want to grow food or prepare it, both titles are perfect for inspiring curiosity, exploration and play beyond their covers.

About FCBG…

The Federation is a national voluntary self-funded organisation whose aim is to promote enjoyment and interest in children’s books and reading and to encourage the availability of books for children of all ages, from first picture books to young adult. Their groups around the country, whose members include parents and carers, teachers and librarians, along with individual and professional members, all want to nurture a love of reading through the sharing of books with children.

They have strong national links with children’s publishers, authors, illustrators and all organisations who support their aim of encouraging children to enjoy, read and share books and stories.
