Selby District Children's Reading Festival

This weekend saw the first Selby District Children's Reading festival.

Organised by the brilliant children's author Christina Gabbitas, creator of Felicity Fly and other poetry books for children.

I was invited along to sign my new book "I Want Puppy" and it was a brilliant success. Everybody seemed to enjoy the festival and hopefully it will be the first of many.

I sold several copies of my books including A Knight Before Christmas and the Dinki colouring book. One little boy spent ages scrutinising the Dinki Comic Collection and his mam ended up buying it for him, He was still reading it quite a while later as they were going.

The other authors and illustrators were really great to meet and the kids loved them. My boy Tommy particularly liked Blue Peter award winning Andy Seed and his new favourite superhero Rappaman (a.k.a. Donavan Christopher) who was really entertaining.
