Chloe Daykin will be visiting Book Corner to read from her children's novel, 'Fish Boy', and sign copies.
'Fish Boy' tells the story of Billy, a lonely boy who lives in a fictional town on the North East coast. Billy is struggling to come to terms with his mum's mysterious illness. Then one day he meets a talking mackerel, and his whole world changes.
'Fish Boy' is Chloe Daykin’s first novel, which she wrote while studying for her MA in Creative Writing at Newcastle University. It won a Northern Writers’ Award in June 2014, and has already garnered huge critical acclaim. An artist, designer, playwright and teacher, Chloe lives in Northumberland with her husband and two boys. She is one of New Writing North's Read Regional authors for 2018, and is visiting Book Corner as part of this campaign.
Bring some sparkle and a bit of bite to your half term with our Isadora Moon Day!
Half vampire, half fairy, totally unique, Isadora Moon is special because she is different. Her mum is a fairy and her dad is a vampire and Isadora is a bit of both. She loves the night, bats, and the colour black, but she also loves the outdoors, using her magic wand, and the colour pink.
Join us for Story Time at 11am or 2pm, and wear your very best Isadora Moon fancy dress for your chance to win a prize!
Activity sheets will be available throughout the day, so you can colour in Isadora or make a pair of fairy wings.
You can also pick up a copy of the brand new book in the series by Harriet Muncaster: Isadora Moon Goes to the Fair! Isadora is excited for her first ever trip to the fun fair, but when she arrives it's not quite as magical as she expected. Luckily, her cousin Mirabelle has a plan to make the fairground rides extra special. What could possibly go wrong?
This event is recommended for children aged 5-8. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
