seawigs london bookshop tour

The day after the launch of Oliver and the Seawigs, Philip Reeve and I went to six central London bookshops to sign and doodle in their books. I thought I'd start off the day giving a squidsy snog to Beau Brummell, fashion icon who supposedly took five hours to get dressed every day. (Actually, I knew him best from a line in a song in Annie.)

Our first stop was Hatchard's, where we signed books with Sabina. That was exciting, because I remember about ten years ago, my friend Kim Henwood taking my photo in front of the shop saying, 'some day you'll be signing books in there'.
