Tuesday 3rd March – author visit

Hi readers,

Today Pigeon and I drove to Putney. The traffic was a nightmare and I felt very flustered when I arrived. I literally arrived within a minute of 10am and rushed into the assembly hall, where lots of little people were sitting waiting patiently for me. I am a person who likes to get everywhere super early so you can imagine I was flapping! So was Pigeon!

What a lovely school. The teachers were super friendly and the children full of intrigue. I felt more confident in my interactive storytelling after practicing the day before. I introduced myself and talked about what inspired me to write The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden, introduced Pigeon and off we went into the story.

 

 

 

“What was that wonderful sound?” cooed Pigeon

Eight years ago I saw a pigeon with tangled feet, then I noticed a pigeon watching an opera singers busking in Covent Garden’s piazza & an invisible force of pure joy & excitement flowed through me. I began to write. I haven’t stopped! Pigeon was so excited to be snuggling up to his favourite sound, which he likes to call the ‘tra la la la laaaaaa’!

 

BBC Radio London

Is there anything you have done that you never imagined you would do in your life? A year ago, I would have never imagined I would be invited on BBC Radio London. I am so glad that I pushed myself to go on Sky News live as this gave me the confidence to say yes to my invitation on the Jo Good Show. I immediately warmed to Jo Good  as she was full of kind, positive energy and she adored Pigeon. I will always look back on this moment with warmth and joy. It was also a huge honour to meet Margaret from Alligators Mouth. A lovely children’s bookshop worth visiting in Richmond.

 

Author visit to Esher Church School

Wednesday 13th November, Pigeon and I were invited to Esher Church School. We were greeted by a crowd of 180 smiley and curious faced children, at their Year 1, 2 and 3 assembly. For the first time ever my nerves were silent. i do believe that practice is really important. Prepare with perfect pigeon precision before any pigeon performance! Afterwards the children asked some questions like:

How did you come up with the idea?

Why Covent Garden?

I felt really good afterwards. I feel like I can do anything now. I will continue to strive to spread the word about how important it is for children to understand the following messages:

— Always believe in yourself!

— Always be YOU

— Dream big!

— Explore!

— Be brave!

— Look after your local wildlife!

— Look after your planet!

 

 

 

 

Global Climate Change Strike – 2019

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.
