Meeting the Children's Laureate

Posted by kate Poels on Tuesday, October 27, 2015
It is half term and what better way to begin than by letting my two daughters take me to an author event at our local book shop.  A tiny book shop but my favourite, (Chapter 1 in Woodley if you fancy going along to say hi to Mary and John there.) A visit to a book shop is never a bad thing to do and can be a very happy way to spend an hour or so.  Yesterday Chapter 1 had an added attraction, not one literary hero in our household but two.  A F Harrold, poet, author and very funny entertainer would have been reason enough but the fact that he was accompanied by the illustrator of his latest book (Things You Find in a Poet's Beard,) none other than the super talented Children's Laureate Chris Riddell.....
Well that was Monday, how on Earth do I find things of equal excitement for the rest of the week?
