Egmont partners with hotel chain
16.08.13 | Lisa Campbell
Publisher Egmont Press has partnered with hotel chain Jury's Inn to provide 10 titles children can borrow over the summer months.
The Jury's Inn Little Library will have 10 books for bedtime reading published by Egmont Press, including You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum by Andy Stanton, Ellie May Would Like to Be Taken Seriously For A Change by Marianne Levy and Collette the Cow by Nina Govan.
The books will be available to borrow for free.
Jo Hardacre, publicity manager at Egmont Press, said: "When staying with children, bedtime stories are something no-one wants to be without, so I'm sure the Jurys Inn Little Library will be welcomed by many guests travelling with children. We see it as a great opportunity for children and their parents to enjoy some of the great books and authors from our extensive list."
Suzanne Cannon, group marketing manager of Jurys Inn, added: "After a great day out there's nothing better than curling up with a good book. We really hope our young guests will enjoy these fantastic stories when they stay with us this summer."
