Pigeon & Lotus Classics

Pigeon loved being in the company of Lotus Classics as they played a variety of soulful tunes both modern and old classics. The crowds flocked to listen and watch from the railings above. For a moment in time as thought time had stood still, it was silent and all you could hear was the beautiful soft sounds of the individual instruments.

Author visit to The Playroom, Wandsworth 🐦

I hope you all had a chance to celebrate National Storytelling week in your own special ways. Pigeon and I visited a sweet nursery in London called The Playroom. Greeted by lots of smiley faces and some beautiful pigeon crafts they had created in honour of Pigeon’s visit.

18th December – Sandown Play Cafe event

On this day Pigeon and I made our way to Sandown Play Cafe. It was freezing cold and we had loads of boxes to carry with all of our books and a polaroid camera! Just incase a little person wanted an instant photo to treasure of themselves with Pigeon!

There was a crowd of tiny people looking very intrigued by Pigeon sitting on the table, they thought it was very funny when I pretended that I couldn’t see Pigeon. This was a great experience and we would be happy to visit the cafe again! Perhaps with a craft next time! We signed lots of books.

Author visit at Little Sparrows, Esher

On Monday 11th November, Pigeon and I were invited to Little Sparrows nursery to read to three sets of ten children in their reading room. It was a really lovely time, Pigeon was a little shy to start off with and would not come out of his bag! The children were aged 2 to 4 years old, which I believe can be tricky age because of their attention span. It was a lovely experience!

Waterstones – Covent Garden, Book reading

On 19th October 2019, I was given the opportunity to read my book at the store! At 3pm, crowds of little inquisitive people spilled into Waterstones and waited in anticipation to hear Pigeon’s story. Seven years ago, I was working in Covent Garden and used to spend my lunch breaks in this bookshop. So as you can imagine this was truly a dream come true to be able to read my published book in this store. It is so important to focus on your passion and really strive to achieve your aspirations because their are so many amazing benefits from creating and making your dreams come true.

 

 

 

10th October 2019

Pigeon and I had a fantastic book event at Toddlestop. This time on a Thursday. There were more children than the last event. So that was a good experience. We created pigeon puppets with googley eyes and feathers and sold quite a few books! Signing books is a great honour!

 

 

First ever book reading! 2nd October at Toddlestop in Esher!

Pigeon and 1 had our first book reading at Toddlestop, a toddler group in Esher Baptist Church. It was a really nice experience. I read ‘The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden‘ and then the children had the opportunity of making their very own pigeon puppets!
