Nottingham Telling Tales Festival • CLOCKWORK DRAGON event

If you live in or near Nottingham and are interested in children's storytelling you might like to come along to this year's Telling Tales Kid's Festival of Imagination on Saturday 10th October.

Aimed at children from 3 to 13 years, the festival is a great day out for all the family, with a varied mix of ticketed and free drop-in events. As well as author and illustrator events, there are filmmaking and claymation workshops, face-painting and plenty of other art and craft activities.

If you come along to my event at the Poppy and Pint pub you can hear me read The Clockwork Dragon, my picture book with illustrator Elys Dolan. I'll also tell you how the story came about and you'll get a chance to make your very own pop-up dragon mask.

Here's a quick description of the story …
The Kingdom of Rodney is being terrorised by Flamethrottle the dragon. Fortunately Max, a young toymaker, and Lizzie, an armourer, are more than a match for this man-eating monster and the two of them come up with a clever plan to drive it away.
Here's a trailer for the book …

And here's me wearing one of the masks we'll be making. Just think, you too could look just as handsome as this!

10.00 - 11.30 am Saturday 10th October
