World Book Day 2022

I’m back home now after a great week travelling round different schools and events for World Book Day. It’s always so brilliant to see everyone’s excitement about books and reading! I got to visit three brilliant schools:

And about sixteen more online, through a fab Museum Kittens online event with Tameside Libraries. One of the schools got to visit the library afterwards to find my books – I love these photos!

I also did lots of reading on a book barge moored at Camden Market! They had gorgeous book themed food, a butterfly (from The Very Hungry Caterpillar) on stilts, and a chair made out of books!

It was brilliant to see so many children dressed up as characters from my books too!

This is a fantastic Star!

It was so lovely to see Museum Kittens costumes for the first time!

And I got to help make museums with Sarah Lodge’s brilliant artwork:

We also had Jess the Lonely Puppy

Maisie Hitchins, with beautiful red hair!

A fabulous Rose costume, from Rose and the Magician’s Mask

And me! I love this one – I do wear a lot of cardigans and big necklaces…

Hope you all had an amazing World Book Day too!

Tiger poems

I’m planning to add a new section to the website soon, with activities to download. For the moment, here’s a tiger poem! My book Star is set in Siberia, part of Russia, where there are tigers in the snow. The gorgeous cover is by Britta Teckentrup, but the Star on the poem sheet has lost her stripes. Can you write her a poem to bring them back?

You can see my version in the photo above, but I’m not very good at writing poems! I’d love to see your tiger poems and feature them on the website – have a go!
