David and the Giant book launch

David and the GiantI will be reading from my new book, David and the Giant, at CLC Bookshop, Newcastle on Saturday 4 August at 2pm. Bring along your 3 – 7 year-old sprogs. There will be juice, biscuits and colouring. Please share this with anyone you know with children / nieces / nephews/ grandchildren in that age bracket who live in and around the Newcastle area.

If you haven’t yet managed to get your hands on the first two books, David and the Hairy Beast and David and the Kingmaker, they will also be available to purchase on the day, signed by the author. If you can’t make it to the reading, you can buy the books from Amazon and many other bookshops around the UK.

Here’s a little sneak peek of one of the pages from the book:

David and the Kingmaker is going to press

I’ve just finished proofreading the second picture book in my Young David Books series – David and the Kingmaker. My erstwhile illustrator Amy Barnes has done an amazing job with the illustrations and I can’t wait for it to get into the shops for Christmas.
