A great evening reading scary stories in a beautiful shop in Mullingar called Red Earth. It was packed with children of all ages, dressed amazingly for Halloween.

I was delighted to attend the launch of Bee Hives sculptures, by Mark Rode at THE BEES BIG DAY OUT in Knocknacarra NS Galway yesterday when this Art Project was brought to fruition by the dreams, creativity and dedicated work of a brilliant and very busy team the KNS Hive and Team of Bees... the sculptures were stunning and I must congratulate the School on their 2 year project on bees. It is amazing. Looking forward to seeing the DVD which I had a small role in...

I was delighted to be included in this years Recommended Reads Rogha Leabhar 2012 by Childrens Book Ireland with my latest book Beelicious recipes with honey.....a first cookbook for boys and girls:
I am almost finished my tour of libraries as part of Children's Book Festival 2012 and I have to say I had a brilliant time. I really enjoyed my time in the Wexford Libraries, i.e. Bunclody, New Ross, Enniscorthy, and Gorey. Then on to Tallagh Library for four readings with four different schools. I also did some readings in Westmeath Libraries and Schools. Just a few more to go and it's all over until next year. I must say that the children in all the libraries and schools were absolutely fantastic and as far as I can tell they really enjoyed my visits. Thanks to all these lovely children and to the teachers and librarians that I met on my travels. The following are some lovely photos from the events:
