|Andrew Weale & "Spooky, Spooky House"|
All of the authors I met today where brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed watching their talks/ workshops!
First up, I watched Andrew Weale who read from two stories, including Spooky, Spooky House, which was so much fun with it's huge array of hidden surprises under a multitude of flaps!
Next, was the "Cartoon Workshop" - more Comic workshop to be honest. Kev was incredibly funny, talented and entertaining!
I have to admit the fact he worked for The Beano made me in awe of him!
As a child, I wanted that job!
The amazingly talented, Diana Kimpton, was next...
She was excellent with the children.
They thoroughly enjoyed her various acts and role-plays (she chased children around), funny voices, and excerpts from her stories.
The children (& adults) asked a lot of questions at the end.
Very interesting overall.
|The Big Draw with "Bridget Marzo"|
Next up, was Bridget Marzo with her Tiz & Ott's Big Draw.
She had all the children and adults (myself included) on the floor drawing!
My youngest (aged 6) managed to see her at school and I managed to get her a signed copy of the book which she read to me tonight.
It truly is a brilliant book for children. Especially to encourage creativity with art.
Lastly, I watched Nicholas Allan who entertained us not only with his books, but with magic tricks galore & an assortment of chocolate prizes!
What a brilliant way to end the day...
Tomorrow, you get the chance to see Andrew Weale, Diana Kimpton, and Nicholas Allan again... so come along and join the fun!
|Ghost Walks to the Cellars!|
You can even visit the ghostly cellars!
I highly recommend you come along to the IOWLF
