|Tales on Moon Lane bookshop display|
Bit nervous this morning as no Alex to charm and delight the kids with his wonderful drawings, stylish threads and lovely self…
However, my daughter baked some utterly delicious cookies instead:
"Mum", she said, "Trust me. The best talks have a treat at the end!"
"But we've got Activity Sheets…" I muttered.
"You can't eat those…" she said
She was right, of course.

The kids were fantastic and ranged from babes in arms up to 12 year olds: the bookshop was packed. They knew their stuff, too…
We even learnt a fact about Nelson's column: did you know that it's the length of his ship?
Some inspired drawings of bus passengers included:
1. A giraffe so tall his head poked out of a hole in the roof, who sported an umbrella similar to Granny Rose's
2. A carrot, dog & cat
3. Someone's dad
4. A bus driver with both hands on the wheel (excellent health & safety)
5. A rabbit that struck more than a passing resemblance to an alien
6. A tiny weeny magic door…
7. Some brilliant self-portraits
