On 29th October 2019, Pigeon and I had a book reading event at Esher library in Esher, Surrey. It was wonderful to be reading The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden to local people so close to our home. The children were amazed that Pigeon could actually coo and they were given the opportunity to cuddle him afterwards. It was so sweet! I love watching their facial expressions when I am telling the story because my book is such a rollercoaster of emotions and drama!
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!
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!
So emotional to see so many people fighting for their future across the globe. I am feeling proud to be part of this historical event! The Tap-Dancing Pigeon of Covent Garden is particularly proud to support ‘Plasticspledge’ by Delphi which advocates the end of single use plastic.
When I first heard about the story it was all about how a little pigeon gets affected by plastic rubbish. Although that is the case I actually think that is a lot more to this book. This is a story about a young pigeon who leaves home and discovers his own passion and I loved that aspect of it. I think it is important to encourage young kids to go and find something that they are interested in, even if it is unusual, if you are passionate about it go for it.
