Our founder, Adele Cleaver, has written a book! Children don’t dissolve in the rain is Adele’s memoir about parenthood and playwork.

Published on 1st July 2021, Adele is donating all profits from book sales to Big Blue Play.

If you can’t buy it from our shop we love local so order a copy from your local indie bookshop using the ISBN 9781898068082 And they might stock a few if you go back and tell them how good it is!

Hive.co.uk donate a % of each purchase to your local bookshop (the webpage often says Out Of Stock because they don’t have it sitting in their warehouse but don’t be mislead… the order is magically fulfilled by the playful book fairies)

Bookshop.org can’t order it for you – disappointing. But these global retailers can: Browns Books, Waterstones, Book Depository, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Boomerang.com.au etc


“Beautifully written, this book is in itself playful and a wonderful tale of play, adventure and self-discovery.”

Laura Walsh, Head of Play, Great Ormond Street Hospital
