"Saffron, so quite excellent" arrives in Hamilton
Diary of a writer: 2nd entry
What a delight it is to be in front of such a gorgeous group of children. This was my thought as I was preparing for my “author talk” about “Saffron, so quite excellent” at “Book for Kids” bookshop, last Monday in Hamilton.
My second thought was more like will I be able to successfully entertain these intelligent looking children?
Lucky for me Saffron has definitely gotten into an extremely tricky situation half way through the book; so it was actually quite easy to capture my audience imagination. Lots of giggles, lots of surprised faces, lots of laughter.
Laughter, when I hear laughter I know that I have been so quite excellent at entertaining my audience. And that makes me smile!!!!!!!
Thank you Judy and her team for being such wonderful hosts and for creating the most wonderful window display, the yummiest cookies and the most colourful cup cakes.
