May merriment! Festivals and competitions…
Posted on April 21, 2015. More from Pip’s Blog
Oh, spring has sprung! And isn’t it just wonderful? I love getting out and about and meeting Squishy McFluff fans, so I’m very excited that Squishy and I are going to be making some appearances at festivals in May.
When I say ‘appearances’, the truth is that I might be ‘appearing’ slightly more than Squishy McFluff himself, what with him being invisible. But mark my words, he WILL be there – and children with big imaginations will be able to see him. 🙂
So, the dates. First up, we shall be at the inaugural Greenwich Book Festival, on Sunday May 24th, at 10.30am. Then, the following weekend, Squishy and I will be at Hay Festival, on Sunday May 31st, at 10am.
Talking of Hay Festival leads me to more exciting news! My picture book, Daddy’s Sandwich, launches on May 7th – and I’ll be bringing a Daddy’s Sandwich event to Hay Festival, too.
Daddy’s Sandwich is all about a little girl who wants to make a snack for her dad, including all his favourite things. Yes, ALL his favourite things, whether or not they make suitable sandwich fillings!
So, as well as reading Daddy’s Sandwich at Hay, we shall be working together to make the world’s most ridiculously inedible sandwich. Do come long and join the fun.
As part of the Daddy’s Sandwich launch celebrations, Faber Children’s is going to be running some competitions in the coming weeks. Follow @faberchildrens on Twitter and look out for details to win signed books and more!
Well, that’s all for now, folks. I very much hope to see some of you at the festivals in May. In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine.
