It’s coming up on two years since the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown. To mark the occasion, on Wednesday 16th March, The Book Fairies hid copies of Max Counts to a Million around the country.

You know about the Book Fairies, right? They’re real and everything. Look, here is evidence of their activity:

Books were left in cafes, playgrounds, outside schools, at a swimming pool, a children’s hospital, and one in the capable hands of a statue in London.

I joined the fairies too, with copies left at the Luton bus interchange for children heading home on the bus after school.

If you love books and want to share them, you can be a book fairy too.
