Tales from a Pea Green Boat- Exhbition Flyer

COMING SOON...... Get it in your diary if you around and please spread the pea green love!

My Book reading & workshop at Queens Gate Junior School

I had a brilliant day with the kids at Queens Gate School. They all seemed to enjoy the book and LOVE Elephant White, even more than the book. What you can't see, as I am unable to put all the photos that show faces on the internet, is the moment where all 22 girls dive bombed Elephant White for a group photo. I could not see him at all. He was buried underneath all the girls very cosiest cuddles, they almost decapitated him with their love.

Story time.....

The kids made some great little patchwork Elephant White's of their own. I had a little chuckle to myself at how some of the stars had been stuck down...
