Roehampton Reads at Heathmere School

We recently spent a wonderful day at Heathmere Primary School for the first Roehampton Reads Festival. With a great line-up of events, it was a chance for children and families to listen to authors, poets, illustrators and performers in this festival of words, books and stories.

The Alligator’s Mouth Bookshop had a stall at the Festival

We were very happy to provide books and bags for children to take home at the end of the day – here are some of the festival goers waiting to get their books signed by Kes Gray, author of Oi Frog!  Thanks to Hachette for their help supplying these books.
