Happy Birthday Walker Bear
Last week it was The Walker Bear's 30th Birthday Party. And what a wonderful night it was; writers, illustrators, book makers and book lovers had fun together in The Mary Ward House to celebrate.
David Lloyd said on the night
'For the best Children's Books look for the bear. That's what we say and keep on saying. And making the best books is what we've done, what we do and keep on doing, to the best of our ability. Thank you. Thank you all. Now have a splendid party.
Keep on with radiance into the future. Take another dip into the lake of story. Say, again. Again.
Shock your systems with extreme celebration. In every moment. Forever, as Sebastian showed us how. Goodnight.'
And what a great night it was. Thank you for the stories Mr Walker Bear. Happy Birthday.
