The year might be coming to a close, but there are still plenty of kid-friendly events to enjoy. Here’s a thought – maybe you can kill two chickens with one stone and buy a nest full of Christmas gifts while you’re at it? It’s a great way to support local authors and artists and we guarantee a good yarn under every cover.

Whether in class, online or at assembly, Cristy will give your students a rip-roaring sneak peek at her brand-new adventure story for ages six to ten. All you have to do is provide a strong cup of tea and a wildly enthusiastic young audience.
