Derek Jacobi reads The Black and White Club for Cbeebies Bedtime stories!

Next Tuesday evening before little ones across the UK go to bed, they will be treated to the wonderful story of The Black and White Club by the one and only Sir Derek Jacobi.

On Tuesday 24th March, the celebrated actor Sir Derek Jacobi –  who stars in Cinderella, Last Tango in Halifax and I, Claudius – will read The Black and White Club on Cbeebies Bedtime Stories.

The Black and White Club is Alice Hemming’s first book. It explores themes of friendship, diversity and acceptance through the charming character of George the Giraffe.

This is not the only good news for The Black and White Club, however, as it will also be featured in the Summer Reading Challenge this year alongside two other Maverick titles, A Scarf and a Half and I Wish I’d Been Born a Unicorn.

The second George the Giraffe book, A Gold Star for George, will be released May 28th and is available for pre-order now. You can buy your own copy of The Black and White Club at your local bookshop or online here.

Make sure you tune in for your bedtime story on Tuesday, you’ll be in for a treat!
