Some snakes!

Here are a few action shots from my recent library event.  20 children drew dogs, penguins and made pop-up snakes.  I really enjoyed the event as everyone really got involved - and the feedback from parents was great!  Thanks to everyone who attended and to all the library staff for making me feel so welcome.

Pop-up Snake!

I will be at Cherry Hinton Library tomorrow morning between 10.30-11.30am reading stories and making pop-up snakes! It's a free event for ages 3-5 but places need to be booked. This is my demonstration snake - I'm sure there will be some much better ones made tomorrow!

Exciting times!

While I was away last week I had an exciting tip-off from my friend book I Got a Crocodile was read by Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor Damian Lewis on the CBeebies Bedtime Stories slot on Thursday evening!  I've taken a few screenshots to prove to myself that I'm not imagining the whole thing!  It's still available on the i-player for a couple of days: if you're in the UK and want to watch click here.

I've been away....

I've just got back from a short break in Cornwall.  While I was there I did a little bit of drawing as well as walking up and down lots of beaches.  It was REALLY windy so quite hard to draw outside so the second two were done hanging out of windows. It was also the first time I'd used my little travel set of watercolours for a long, long time (you'll notice I'm getting the excuses in early) so it's now chock-full of sand!

I Got a Crocodile!

Tomorrow is the publication date of my new book 'I Got a Crocodile!' (Simon & Schuster).  It seems like the publication date has come round very quickly since I finished the book, but the original idea goes back to when I was on the MA course at Cambridge five years ago!

The characters are still the same as they were all those years ago!  Here's a picture of my graduation exhibition:
