Last night saw bestselling author and illustrator Debi Gliori come to us for a night of spooky reading in front of a full house; the fire was blazing, the jack-o’-lanterns were glowing, children and adults were cosied up in front of the fire to find all out about The Scariest Thing of All…
Debi read from two of her picture books and two of her series for slightly older readers. An extremely talented storyteller, Debi had the room completely under her spell. With the ages of our young audience ranging from 2-8 years old, it was delightful to see everyone thoroughly enjoying
each story – proof that we’re never too old to appreciate beautiful pictures in our books and proof that ‘reading age’ is a term that shouldn’t have too much weight placed on it. Every child will develop their reading skills at their own pace… and that’s OK!
It was an utter pleasure to see so many happy little ones clutching their freshly signed (and illustrated!) books following this very special event.
