Imogen and Mae at Barnes Literacy Festival

Barnes Literacy Festival

Imogen and Mae had a fantastic time at Barnes Literacy Festival last weekend! A.F Steadman held an all about me quiz. Their favourite part of her session was helping A.F Steadman to create a name for a new unicorn which will feature in her next book!

Creative skills were put to the test when Olaf Falafel, author, illustrator, stand-up comedian, football coach and Father held a draw with me session! The girls drew a bird dog – a birds head and wings and the body of a sausage dog! The emotions version of pass the parcel was fun with Olaf singing to people when they opened the parcel to reveal an emotion! They loved his cheese challenge! Olaf tossed a slice of cheese onto a book and read each word that was exposed through the holes in the cheese, there were lots of giggles!
Olaf writes and illustrates children’s books including Blobfish and the Trixie Pickle Art Avenger series.

The girls had a fabulous day and are planning to go again next year!
