Children’s Books – Events & Visits


I enjoy visiting schools & libraries to read and talk about my picture books and work with children.

For libraries:
My typical storytime session includes book reading with puppets and some songs, followed by craft workshop (30min – 1h).

For schools:
My author visit sessions are best suited for children in EYFS and KS1. I share my stories, discuss with the children about where story ideas come from and how they can find ideas for themselves. Children can also have art activities based on the stories. Parents have the option to order signed copies of my books with a discount.

I offer schools a special SCHOOL PACKAGE. To find out more, please click the button below.
