Konnie HuqBook Shambles
Konnie Huq was a much loved presenter of the children’s show Blue Peter for over a decade and now she’s written her first children’s book, Cookie. She joins Robin in studio to chat about that book, the books that got her hooked on reading as a kid, how we should be encouraging kids to read in school, fairy tales, National Geographic and much more.
