Grandad's Island docks at Waterstone's Hampstead with Benji Davies


Coconut cocktails and Tropicafruit punch all round as today is the day we kick off the official Benji Davies 
'Grandad's Island' blog tour! 

The lovely folk at Simon and Schuster have been kind enough to let us have a sneaky peek at the process involved in the installation of Benji's incredible transformation of a window display at Waterstone's in Hampstead. 

As a former bookseller I can say with great pride that imagining, designing and creating window displays to promote exciting new books was absolutely one if the most enjoyable and satisfying elements of my job. 

As you can see for the photos below, Benji got stuck in and the results are truly breath-taking and a more than fitting celebration of this completely beguiling picture book.  

You can read my review for Grandad's Island HERE - Buy a copy now, GRAB A COPY NOW , no book shelf should be without one! 

Tidy but a bit dull 

Benji - actually IN the window 

Is he for sale? 

Greenery goes in! 

Syd and Grandad.. and a few technicolour parrots 

Proud as punch! 

Just beautiful! 

Pop along and pay homage to this incredible creation - and if you are passing please tweet us a photo of you with this beautiful window display @maybeswabey - Follow Benji on Twitter @Benji_Davies
