Just back from an really amazing week in Cologne celebrating Irish Children's Literature. Every year the city focuses on a different country and invites their most well known Children's writers and Illustrators along to celebrate books, visit schools and have an exhibition of their artwork. I was lucky enough to be invited along with 10 other authors and illustrators, that included PJ Lynch, John Boyne and Malachy Doyle.
I travelled with Siobhan Parkinson and our host Uschi made us feel
Me and my translator Maike!
Me in action..
Another highlight was a chance meeting with Dayve Stewart Sax player who kindly serenaded Two Irish Laureates on the Cologne Street!
