The Book Place

The Book Place was an Australian educational television show for children, which aired on the Seven Network from 1991 to 2003.[1] The show was originally presented by former host of Fat Cat and Friends, Lynn Weston with Brenton Whittle, and Andy Armstrong, with Michael Scheld as the Bookworm.
