Bath Kids Lit Super Fans! Lily Stanley

As part of Bath Children’s Literature Festival’s 10th Birthday celebrations we have invited a few of our biggest fans to describe some of their favourite memories from festivals past and what they’re looking forward to this year. This week’s blog is from Ottoline enthusiast Lily Stanley…

Hi my name is Lily Stanley and just like the Bath Children’s Literature Festival I am nearly 10 years old.  My mum works for Waterstones who support the Festival by selling lots of books at the events and sometimes I get to help which is really fun.

The first event that I can remember going to was Zoe and Beans-Pants on the moon.  I love the illustrations in both Chloe and Mick Inkpen books.  I also remember going to a Philip Ardagh event. He kept talking about beards a lot and he was a very funny storyteller.

My favourite event last year was Sam and Mark because they got some of the audience up on stage for a quiz which was entertaining.  I hope they do that again this year.  I can’t wait to see David Walliams because he always makes me laugh and Chris Riddell because I love the Ottoline and Goth Girl books – I have them all!
