By The Bookshop on the Green

Our bookshop is in the shadow of Cadbury's famous factory, so we couldn't not have a section devoted to chocolate! Our founder Sarah Mullen commissioned a beautiful children's book about Richard and George Cadbury from author Juliet Clare-Bell and Bournville illustrator Jess Mikhail, with a grant from the Cadbury Foundation and other trusts: Two Brothers and a Chocolate Factory. It's a huge favourite but only available in Bournville, so if you want a copy please email the shop: [email protected]
