Meet Steve Smallman - the award-winning author of the Maggie Sparks children's book series

9:30am – 11:00am

Steve Smallman is coming to The Bookshop on the Green with his latest Maggie Sparks books – stories about a naughty little witch whose temper tantrums fizz into magic!

First Maggie accidentally turns herself into a cute bunny rabbit when her new baby brother steals her parents' attention, and then she accidentally turns herself into a shark at her really tricky swimming lessons!

Laugh-out-loud in these magical misadventures which bridge the gap between Isadora Moon and Amelia Fang for young readers aged 5+.

Steven - who has been a huge hit with BookFest audiences - will be reading from his latest book Maggie Sparks and the Swimming Pool Sharks, teaching a drawing workshop and signing copies of his books.

Tickets: £7 per child include a signed copy of Maggie Sparks and the Swimming Pool Sharks.
Siblings who want to come but don't want an additional book can buy a concession ticket costing £3. Concession tickets must be used in conjunction with a full-priced ticket.

Bring a pen and sketchpad so you can draw along with Steve!

This is an Independent Bookshop Week event sponsored by Oulsnam.
