‘Just one more slice of cake to celebrate, Percy?’ Mum and I are very chuffed to be appearing at Imagine Children’s Festival on the Southbank, on Thursday February 20th at 11am. We shall be chatting about Dixie O’Day in The Fast Lane, and while Mum reads a gripping instalment from the book I shall be doing some live-drawing. The model car will be on show, too – with a specially packed hamper for the occasion! Do come along to say hello – it’ll be lots of fun, a sunny half term treat. I can also now share a lovely piece of news I’ve been keeping under my tea cosy for a little while. Dixie O’Day in The Fast Lane has been chosen to be part of the for the Booktrust Read for My School campaign. It’s a huge honour, and really fabulous to know we are on board with this celebration of reading, encouraging children to embark on a lifelong love affair with books.
