the new neighbours in the alligator's mouth!

Have you ever been to The Alligator's Mouth bookshop in Richmond? It's a real treasure box of an independent bookshop, with the most lovely carefully selected range of top children's books. And last week, I got to visit and present my brand-new picture book, The New Neighbours! Philip Reeve took this photo out front:

The little events area in the back was packed, and I did some reading:

And we all did some drawing. (You can learn how to draw a bunny step-by-step here on my website.) Photo by Fiona Barker:

At the end, Philip and I both signed books:

Then we got to out for tea with excellent local chilren's book author Smriti Prasadam-Halls and her family. Big thanks thanks to everyone who came along, and to David Fickling Books Sabina Maharjan for her help on the day!

Lots of love to the energetic team who keep this wonderful place going: Tony West, Mark Pembrey, Margaret Wallace-Jones and Helen.

You can follow The Alligator's Mouth on social media: Twitter - @alligatorsmouth - Instagram - @alligatorsmouth - and Facebook - and keep an eye on their blog for book reviews written by their staff!
