“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.

Throne of Glass, Disney Movies & Fangirling – Sarah J Maas at #BathKidsLitFestOctober 13, 2016
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 […]
