Each year, World Book Day creates bespoke £1 books for children and young adults across the UK and Ireland, to promote the power of imagination and the importance of reading.

Through World Book Day, every child in Mansfield and Warsop will be given a £1 book token, which they can take to a bookshop or supermarket to get their free World Book Day book.

Mr Bradley said: “World Book Day is always an event that I’m keen to get involved with and spread the word about.
