World’s Largest Children’s Book Is Unveiled

The world’s largest children’s book was recently unveiled in Staffordshire to celebrate the launch of Alton Towers Resort’s first storybook for children – The Enchanted Village. Standing taller than a giraffe and stretching as wide as a 4x4 vehicle, the book towered over surprised visitors, who previewed an exclusive chapter of the book and its colourful characters.  The enormous book, which also weighs more than a polar bear or the equivalent of five mini coopers, beat the previous world record by three feet at an impressive 18’4”.
