Football legends, fantasy worlds, and the Alligator’s Mouth Shortlist!

What a line-up we have in store for you this week on Book Worms! There's authors aplenty, and Bex crowns her Fun Kids Book of the Month for June...

BBC Sports Personality of the year and Arsenal player Beth Mead is here to chat all about her new book, Roar: A Guide to Dreaming Big and Playing the Sport You Love. This is a guide to pursuing your passions and features plenty of activities and tips for you to dive into! 

Nazeen Pathak is here too, chatting all about her new book City of Stolen Magic. This is a spellbinding adventure with Indian and British colonial history woven throughout. For some fantasy with some educational context, you can look no further than Nazneen's wonderful story! 

We're also checking in with the nominees for the Alligator's Mouth Awards 2023 Shortlist. We're welcoming Paula Bowles, illustrator for Marv and the Pool of Peril; author Candy Gourlay on Mike Falls Up; author Kirsty Applebaum on Princess Minna: The Enchanted Forest, and last but not least author and illustrator Elys Dolan on Rex: Dinosaur in Disguise to the podcast!
