CBeebies Star George Webster Book Signing

May 10 @ 15:00 17:00

We are thrilled to announce that Leeds born CBeebies star, BAFTA winner, author and Ambassador for People with Down’s syndrome, George Webster is back, joining us in the shop, to meet fans and sign his new book, Why Not?

Developed in partnership with George’s co-author, Claire Taylor, Why Not? follows a little boy called George as he tells the reader all about himself – who he is, his life and his experiences. George knows that having Down syndrome is an important part of him but it does not define him.

A heartfelt and inspirational story, George encourages others to give things a try – however big or small. We are all different, we are all remarkable, and we are all capable of great things! Featuring George’s real – life family and friends as well as a joyful cast of characters reflective of society.

Celebrating uniqueness and being ourselves, Why Not? highlights the importance of representation, inclusion and how our differences make us special.

With bright and bold illustrations by bestselling illustrator, Tim Budgen.
