Today, Monday 17 November, World Book Day has revealed the live tour line-up for The Biggest Book Show on Earth, 2015. This year it will be bigger than ever in scope and size, featuring over 40 top authors and illustrators and visiting ten locations throughout the UK and Ireland.

The event will run between 23 February and 6 March, visiting regions all over the UK and Ireland, including Bath, Glasgow and Dublin, before landing in Rhyl on 25 February.

Each stop on the tour will give local children a chance to enjoy seeing up to six of their favourite authors and illustrators, including Steven Butler, Jonny Duddle, Jon Mayhew, Shoo Rayner and Heather Dyer.

Angharad Wyn Tomos, Reading Promotions Project Manager at the Welsh Books Council, organisers of the event in Rhyl, said: "We are so excited to be a part of The Biggest Book Show on Earth tour again this year and are pleased to be able to provide such an inspirational experience for the children of Rhyl and the surrounding areas. With a fantastic line-up of authors and illustrators, it is certain to be a wonderful day, full of the joys of books and reading. What better way to start off our World Book Day celebrations!"
