A Saturday afternoon in Bristol!

This afternoon, Torie and I went to Bristol as both Waterstones and Foyles needed visiting!

Greet, from Book Island, was in Waterstones with a selection of their titles. There was a lovely atmosphere in store and a wonderful array of books. It was great to see her again and have a chat!

Then we were off round the corner to Foyles where Ben Newman was entertaining everyone, making masks and drawing pictures.

No one is as brave as me and nothing, I mean nothing, scares me...


His new book, 'Boo!' is absolutely delightful. Full of humour, the illustrations are fabulous, leaving us desperately wishing that we could draw! Fortunately, children will rise to the challenge and create masterpieces of their own!

Ben added a real work of art to each book he signed; I can't wait to share this with my class next week!

A lovely end to the holiday!
