Once Upon a Time by Vince Powell, Greg Watts, Michell Aspell


Once Upon a Time by Vince Powell, Greg Watts, Michell Aspell

Once Upon A Time is a book about childhood. To raise money for the NSPCC over fifty celebrities from show business, religion and politics have written touching accounts of their own childhoods. Some of these are simply hilarious but a number are as touching as Dickens and pull at the heartstrings. Children are our future and they need to be protected, so in celebrating childhood this book is also celebrating the future.In all these accounts there is an understanding that children must be at the forefront of our attention and that they can give us a glimpse of hope in the modern world. The NSPCC fights on their behalf.There could be no better theme for a book designed to raise money for the NSPCC - to alleviate the suffering and deprivation of young people. Today, children are too often the victims of hardship and cruelty and this book will drive home the message with poignancy.Contributors include Tony Blair, David Jason, Chris Tarrant, June Whitfield, Sir Roger Moore and Meera Syal.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!
