Buy Boris Baloo for World Book Day

Figure image
March 4 is World Book Day and what better day to mark the occasion than with a copy of Ben Herring's new children's book, Boris Baloo?

The book is being sold in aid of the Matt Hampson Trust and is inspired by Tigers prop Boris Stankovich. It also features characters based on teammates Martin Castrogiovanni, Marcos Ayerza and Dan Hipkiss.

Herring, Stankovich and Geoff Parling gave the first reading to more than 100 supporters at the book’s launch in the European Suite at Welford Road last Sunday and supporters snapped up copies.

Watch an exclusive LTTV interview with Ben Herring as well as a star reading with the author and Boris Stankovich by clicking here.

Copies of the book are available from the Matt Hampson website by clicking here or pick up a copy in Final Whistle in the Caterpillar Stand at Tigers' home game against London Irish on Saturday (kick off 5.35pm) for a recommended £10 donation to the Matt Hampson Trust.

An eBook version, published by Leicestershire media ideas company Sleepydog, is available as an App for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It is available to download from the iTunes App Store at £2.99 with proceeds going to the Matt Hampson Trust.
