Founded in 2013 the festival returns in April 2017 and will once again feature some big ticket events, presentations by popular children's authors and illustrators, and educational sessions for schools - all for youngsters who appreciate the magic of books, and grown-ups who want to write them.
Festival organiser,Helen Dunning, has once again put together a very nice programme.
With over 50 events to choose from, book lovers from toddlers to teens will be inspired by some of the best local and national contemporary authors and illustrators in both English and Welsh.
Authors will be making their words and pictures come to life with tales of fantastical creatures, pooping dinosaurs, crime-solving detectives, wimpy kids and even some big pants. Come and meet pirates, princesses, rainbow fairies and many more wonderful characters.
There are even some special events for adults too!
