BOOK WEEK NEWS: Playford Library talk.

Right after doing my King’s Baptist Grammar talks I drove down to the Playford library to give another talk. It was a good turn out and everything went great. Here is what the kids came up with when I did my character creation bit.

Meet Milkshake the cat. He has a log for a body, brooms for arms and octopus legs. He lives in a magician’s hat in space


BOOK WEEK TALKS: Kings Baptist Grammar – DAY 2

On the second day of talks at King’s Baptist Grammar I had a bunch of kids waiting for me to sign stuff when I rocked up. It was awesome and I have never had that happen to me before.

As usual I did my talks and ended with a character creation part. Here is what the kids came up with.

First up we have Debbie the cat. She has bananas that shoot out puppies for arms, a KFC bucket for a body and chainsaws for legs. She lives in a giant hot dog in the land of doughnuts.


Next we have Bobby the pig. He has giraffes for arms, a snow mans body with bacon for legs. He lives in a whale in Candy land.


Last we have Fred the worm. He has a vending machine for a body, sausage dogs for arms and human legs. He lives in a giant Lego block in a forest.


I had an amazing time at King’s Baptist Grammar. I just want to thank Denise Visciglio and  all the kids for making we feel really welcome! Thanks everyone!
