A WEEKLY children's story time is launching at Abingdon's Mostly Books this month with a special literary appearance.

To kick off the regular event, which will take place every Thursday at 11am, popular character the Gruffalo will be stopping by the Stert Street shop on June 21.

Youngsters can hear stories about the Gruffulo, who was created by author Julia Donaldson, and meet the beast in real life.

There will be price promotions on all Gruffalo books and goodies for the children to take away with them.

No booking required and people are invited to turn up on the day between 11am and 1pm.
