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?
