300 young minds + two young-at-heart Etheringtons = FUN!

As you are probably now aware Lorenzo and I spend a lot of time on the road visiting festivals, book shops, libraries and schools all over the country. It is wonderful to be invited to speak to children of all ages, and share some of our tips and tricks while enthusing about the pleasure to be found in writing, drawing and reading.

Last week we journeyed south west to the world famous town of Glastonbury to spend a day with the pupils of Millfield Preparatory School. And when I say 'the pupils' I mean year 3,4,5,6,7 and 8!!! Wow!

We made excellent use of the largest projection screen I've ever seen and we had an absolute ball. Nice of them to provide me with a drum kit as well...

Thanks to Vicky Hayes for organising the day and all the staff for making us feel so welcome (the coffee and the lunch were exceptionally good!). Special thanks, as ever, go to the students who contributed to some truly hilarious workshops.

We look forward to returning in the future!
