Children’s Book Festival 2013

Hi all!

Just a quick note to say a massive thank-you to South Dublin Library for inviting me out to visit their mobile library last week for Children’s Book Festival. Very proud that The Magnificent Toby Plum is now available as a classroom novel with South Dublin Libraries so schools in the area can borrow a set of 30 to read together.

Lovely librarian Bernie Meenaghan picked me up in Tallaght and brought me out to St Thomas’ SNS in Jobstown. I visited two groups of fourth class pupils and had a brilliant time with them. The children showed me their magnificent art work based on Toby Plum’s story and asked lots of questions about how to write a book. A big, big thank you to the children and teachers for the warm welcome!
