Hifest is a great place to meet other illustrators and buy their beautiful work. Two of my favourite purchases were by Melissa Castrillon and Daisy Hirst
After reading Robin’s Winter Song to a lively group of children at Hay Winter Festival, I showed them how to draw a robin. Here are some of the amazing creations.
I met some lovely children on visits to Early Years settings in Wokingham. Three year olds are very good at making birds and I particularly liked a group effort ‘Harry Betsy’. It was great to find The Dawn Chorus in some of the Bookstart Treasure pack that Claire from Wokingham Library was handing out.
I was delighted to take part in the BAMB campaign in October, by reading Robin’s Winter Song at the lovely bookshop Mostly Books in Abingdon. We made birds and ate cookies. Robin also appears on the 2016 BAMB calendar but not until December.
