Chiswick Book Festival

I had a lovely morning reading from a couple of my stories and then creating a craft session for the under 5's today at St Michaels church for the Chiswick Book Fair:
The organisers had even brought a special author armchair to sit at whilst reading the story to the children! They had also decorated the room with balloons and banners so it felt like a lovely fun atmosphere in the church.
The children seemed to enjoy creating their own chameleons after my story session and got quite messy with all the glitter's and sequins.
One girl, Lilly, one of the oldest of the group (aged seven) coloured her Chameleon and gave it to me to keep. Below is her colourful chameleon.
It was great to sell a few books and sign some copies too.
Overall a lovely way to start the weekend :)
