I’ve just come back from a wonderful trip to the Moscow Book Fair. It was so lovely to go back – almost exactly two years after my first trip to Moscow.
Thanks so much for Eksmo for inviting me, and to Nailia and Dasha for all their brilliant organising!
It was very good timing to be in Moscow, too – the city’s 872nd birthday, with lots of celebrations going on. This is me with Dasha in Red Square, wearing party hats!
There were lots of fabulous street performers.
I’ve been trying to learn some Russian as I have lots of Russian readers, so I was really excited to see that this archway said “goroda” on it – the Russian for city. It’s saying Happy City Day.
I had two lovely events, one at the book fair – which was held in a really beautiful park:
So many excited readers!
I loved the gorgeous cut out of Scout from The Unwanted Puppy!
There was actually a kitten too – ginger Bootle from The Missing Kitten – but he’d been hugged too much and went a bit wobbly!
Thanks so much to everyone at Eksmo, and to all the lovely readers I met!
