Alastair Chisholm joins us in the shop for a very special storytime where he will read us his new picture books, One Hungry Dragon AND Space Pirate Bears!
One Hungry Dragon:
STOMP! STOMP! STOMP!
Here comes Bernardo… and he’s one HUNGRY dragon! This dragon is on the hunt for his lunch – is there anything that he won’t try to gobble up?
A hilarious counting tale featuring lots of favourite fairy tale characters, including magical mermaids, fairy godmothers, funny frogs . . . and one very big BURP!
A laugh-out-loud romp written by Alastair Chisholm, winner of Blackwell’s Children’s Book of the Year, The Queen’s Knickers Award and Scottish Book Trust’s Bookbug Prize. Illustrated by Alex Willmore, winner of Oscar’s Book Prize.
SPACE PIRATE BEARS:
In the darkest depths of outer space, Princess Leona’s STAR DEFENDERS protect the galaxy from danger!
Jamie and Abby are bored, and bored. Dad, trying to work from his dining table office, has no choice but to entertain them with a story – a Space Pirate Bear story! When something grey threatens the entire universe, and has the Star Defenders on the brink of defeat, who are you going to call? Well the mightiest band of heroes in all the cosmos, of course, the SPACE PIRATE BEARS. But can Abby and Jamie agree who these mysterious heroes are before the Forces of Greyness destroys everything? A story within a story that celebrates family time together and choosing your own path.
