Type of Artist:
Talk with PowerPoint presentation based on my Stripes and Scholastic animal stories – showing photos of my own animals, and how they’ve inspired the books.
I base events around my different book series.
For Year 1 and 2, a fun event based around the Furry Friends books, with a marshmallow catapult!
For Years 3 and 4, the Animal Stories or Winter stories, discussing the real animals and events behind the books.
I can also bring crafts to support the stories. For older children, events can be based around my Venice historical fantasies, or Return to the Secret Garden.
DetailsPreferred age range:
Primary age children
Maximum number in any one session:
I don’t mind, although the crafts can be tricky for larger groups, so craft sessions should perhaps be 20-30 max.
No of sessions per day:
Usually an hour including time for questions and craft, and then signing after that.
Areas prepared to travel to:
Preferably within a day’s travel of Reading.
