    Since its launch in 2006, the Young Scot Awards has celebrated the inspirational contributions of thousands of young Scots who have made a real difference to communities across Scotland, recognising the amazing achievements of some of Scotland’s truly remarkable young people.

    Since signing a book deal for the trilogy at the age of 17, Estelle is now enjoying international success. Her DIMILY series has been published across the world in 11 countries so far, including the USA.

    Estelle is fresh off of a European publicity tour, meeting fans and press in Helsinki, Berlin and Madrid, with more planned trips for this summer. Estelle recently headlined at YAY! YA, Scotland’s first teen festival, and was also shortlisted for a Romantic Novelist’s Association Award for the Best Young Adult Novel 2016.

    The B&W Team were at the awards ceremony to celebrate Estelle being a finalist. We are all absolutely delighted for her and look forward to publishing Did I Mention I Miss You?, the final book in the DIMILY Trilogy in July this year!

    WTF – WHY PARENTS SHOULD NEVER TEXT

    We’ve all been there. ‘There’s been a horrible accident. LOL Mum.’ These are the kind of mistakes made every day when a parent gets hold of a mobile phone. WTF is perfect for anyone with a particularly text-phobic mum or dad, so they can share in the tragic hilarity of them falling prey to autocorrect, misusing internet slang, or forcing them to fake-laugh at dad jokes.

    Colouring is cool. Inside the lines, outside the lines, in black and white or colour. What makes colouring cooler? Colouring Scotland, that’s what. Create and Colour Scotland lets your imagination run free as you colour in beautiful Scottish scenes, recreate some of Scotland’s famous faces and animals, create your own tartan and fuel any suspicions you might have about the existence of the Loch Ness Monster as you make your own fingerprint Nessie. Colouring and Scotland have never been more creatively intertwined!

    F**K UP THIS BOOK

    You know those people who get angry when you borrow a book from them and give it back with one tiny bend in the spine? Yeah, this book is definitely not for them. This destructive therapy book works by encouraging you to take out all your frustrations and angst on it – run it over, tear it to shreds, take a hammer to it, answer its annoyingly insightful questions and feel all that stress melt away. Want to see a dog doing it? Of course you do.
