The whole of Yr 7 squeezed into the theatre to watch and listen to popular author, Philip “Beardy” Ardagh. I even saw the teachers chuckling as he regaled tales about second bottom underpants, a stuffed stoat and his wife, Dr Coffee, before reading a short extract from his Eddie Dickens Trilogy. The hour passed before we knew it, but there was still time for those who wished to buy a copy of one of his Grubtown Tales to queue up to have it signed by the big man (2 metres tall and size 16 feet, don’t you know!) Many thanks to Philip, Emma, the lovely ladies from Waterstones and Bath Kids Lit Festival.
Philip later tweeted:
@PhilipArdagh Two fun schools events for the Bath Festival. Over 500 kids. Great audiences. Long signings. Lovely welcome. Thanks, all.
If you missed the chance to buy a book, don’t worry, the Library has plenty of copies for you to borrow.
