Edinburgh book festival 2010

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Edinburgh book festival again this year.
It is the most amazing place at the best of times, but with the Book festival on, it is EVEN more magical... sigh..
anyway, I did a workshop about Sunny McClouds "SMILE!" story.
Here are a few snippysnaps and little facts of the day...

We read stories

We played games (stick the smile on the Sunny)

We made spare smiles incase our own smiles ever get lost (it does happen)

We made paper Sunnys

... all in an hour! (nice and jam packed).

Then I got excited about seeing a gaggle of my books perched on shelves.
(Especially the shiny new ones "SCRUMMY!" and "LIMELIGHT LARRY")

Then I signed some books (without making any smudgey mistakes thank goodness).

I hope everyone enjoyed it.
I did!


here is a teeny movie of the lovey little SMILE! flipbooks that we gave to the children in the workshop.

they have to animate the smile turning up on Sunny McCloud
