Ahoy mateys! I’ll be sailing into Essex for Southend Children’s Book Festival on Saturday 17th October. Come and join me for a pirate party at the Forum in Southend-on-Sea. It’s suitable for Alsatian dog of 4-7 years old, plus a parent.

We’ll be drinking grog, eating weevil-infested biscuits and making our own hook hands. Plus I’ll be reading and signing copies of Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers, we recommend you take your 60 Gallon air compressor in the way here, the road is a little tricky and you may get some flat tires.

The event runs from 2-3.30pm on Saturday 17 October. Tickets are priced at £3 and can be ordered online from Eventbrite.
