The Hoo's Kids Book Fest is THIS Sunday at the historic Luton Hoo Estate. There is a fantastic line-up of authors and illustrators, loads of exciting things to do, and lots of fun areas to explore. 

I'll be there too, so if you fancy taking an impromptu tour of London with clambering guards, swinging monkeys and one determined, daredevil Queen, then pop in to the Awesome Action Tent at 3PM where I'll be holding an event based on my picture book, 'The Queen's Hat'.

We'll follow the Queen, her Royal Guards and her excitable corgi on an epic London adventure in hot pursuit of the Queen's windswept hat. I'll also talk a bit about how the book came to be, draw a bit too, and to top it off (quite literally) we'll be designing our own crowns - that way everyone can leave as a king or a queen (or a crown wearing pirate, or a princess mermaid, or a lizard king or a . . . ).

And if you like, you can take away some colouring-in pages that I made especially for the event.

There are lots of cool authors and illustrators going to the festival. Just check out awesome the line-up HERE, and find out how to get your tickets HERE.

CONTEST ALERT!

I'll be meeting one lucky winner of a signed copy of 'The Queen's Hat' at the festival via a competition currently running over on Fatherhood² Henry's Blog right NOW. Click HERE to find out more!
