“Danger Really Is Everywhere!”
I went to see ‘Danger Really Is Everywhere’ by David O’Doherty and Chris Judge. I’d already read their first book ‘Danger Is Everywhere’ and I got the latest book on the day. The books are funny because they tell you silly stuff about how to avoid danger that means you can’t actually do anything.
I really liked the event and I think Chris is a very good artist. David had a strong voice and was very funny. I like how David created Dr Noel Zone to look just like him. My favourite part was seeing Chris doing the pictures and listening to David being funny. My favourite picture was the shark coming out of the toilet.
Chris really inspired me to do some drawings after it as well. I liked it when I got my book signed by David, and Chris drew the toilet shark in my book too.
David also taught the audience how to get rid of the page 9 scorpion. (Take off your right shoe and bang it on the book really hard and lots of times.) At the end of the event there were free lollies and marshmallows covered in chocolate from The Fudge Factory that I really enjoyed. Yum!
I can’t wait to read the book.

I still can’t believe I actually met the queen herself…Sarah J Maas! Three hours later and i’m still suffering from severe fangirl symptoms. She was so funny and down to earth, and i’m so glad I actually got to see her. She spoke about many things from what inspired her to write Throne of Glass […]
“Have you ever seen anyone who can draw a masterpiece in a matter of seconds?” Biba Tarquini reviews Chris Riddell’s #BathKidsLitFest eventOctober 10, 2016
I only found out we were going to see Chris Riddle a few hours before the event started. We got off to a late start so we had to hastily rush into The Forum. As soon as I walked in I was taken aback. There was an immense screen above the stage, and in front […]
True Stories, Inspiration & more from Michael Morpurgo at #BathKidsLitFest
Michael Morpurgo talked about his relatively new book called Such Stuff – it is about the story behind the story. It sounds really good. He seems to use the truth as inspiration in many of his books for instance he told us all about the true story behind his new book The Eagle In The Snow… Someone […]

“If you have a dream to do something, you should try your hardest and imagine that you can do it. Even if you are scared.”
I don’t know what I thought an Astronaut would look like, but Commander Chris Hadfield just looked like a normal man, maybe even like a teacher. We listened to him talk about his new book ‘The Darkest Dark.’ It’s the real life story of how, when Chris was a young boy, he was afraid of […]
