I have been wanting to visit the Seven Stories - national centre for children's books in Newcastle for ages and I was lucky to be taken to see it on my last visit to see my cousins, Jane and James.
It was great to see all the children reading the books and becoming interactive with the characters, dressing up and discovering new worlds of fancy. One minute you are going through a rabbit hole and the next you are transformed into a borrower sitting on a giant cotton reel.

|Dummy Book - Quentin Blake|
|So many dummy books!|
As always I had to go into the attached bookstore and was so happy and excited to see the book I illustrated The Three little Pigs for Ladybird Books. I have never seen it in any bookstore before so it made my day!
