Blackpool C of E Primary School, Liverton: My summer of storytelling began with a bang… well, a splash!

Empathy Week is a hive of activity among book lovers. It’s an opportunity to shine a light on the many benefits reading brings, not least the skill of seeing the world from someone else’s point of view;
‘In reading, you get to feel things, visit places and worlds you would never otherwise know. You learn that everyone else out there is a me, as well. Empathy is a tool for building people into groups, for allowing us to function as more than self-obsessed individuals.’ – Neil Gaiman
To celebrate the launch of my new picture book ‘The Tide,‘ illustrated by Ashling Lindsey and publishing with Little Tiger Press, we timed a special blog tour to coincide with Dementia Action Week, 20th -24th May.
It was lovely to return to Totnes Library, this time to delight in all things biscuits, books and pirate mice!
