There is no more elaboration than that when you buy a ticket to see Chris Riddell and friends, and in actually fact it clashed with another event I wanted to see. But I thought just get it, I’ve heard SO many good things about the current childrens laureate, it’s bound to be fun! But jeez was that an understatement.
Riddell starts by introducing each member of his panel with a quirky anecdote and the audience gasp with hand on mouth as they emerge. I’m so stoked right now I cant contain myself. So I promised to tell you who I had the pleasure of seeing yesterday DRUM ROLL please!!! ONLY Liz Pichon, Posey Simmons, Cressida Cowell and AND….
Mr Neil Gaiman, Oh dear lord!!! Can you believe it, I couldn’t and I was there lol. So here’s a snipet I managed to film of him reading an excerp from his book ‘Unfortunately for the milk’ -which I’ll review soon!- While Chris Riddell the illustrator draws in the background. Apologies, I couldn’t manage to pick up any of what he’d drawn which was a beautiful, angelic ‘pony’ and if you’re familiar with the story it will make complete sense. But I figured something was better than nothing.
