Happy Halloween

School’s out and I’ve had a wonderful time during Children’s Book Festival meeting lots of you in libraries and schools all over the country. But now it’s time to tell a few spooky stories! Read a few spooky books and have a great Halloween Trick or Treating with your friends!

Children’s Book Festival 2013

The big annual Children’s Book Festival kicks off for the month of October.

I’m going to be busy visiting libraries and schools and bookshops all over the country, talking about books and reading and writing with lots of great young readers from all over Ireland.

I will be in Tipperary and Laois and Northern Ireland along with a few Dublin visits too. It’s always fun meeting everyone to talk about books. There will be lots of brilliant events all around Ireland so check out your local library or school library to see what’s happening and join in all the fun of the Festival!
