The launch date of Wacky Bee’s two new picture books is fast approaching. 19th February is THE day and to celebrate the launch of both My Mum Is There and My Dad Will Do author Martin Thomas is doing a reading/book signing at Waterstones Oxford on Saturday 20th Feb, 2 – 4pm and another one at Waterstones Witney on Saturday 27th Feb, 2 -4pm.
Martin’s sessions are great fun so do check them out if you’re in the area. He’s passionate about story telling and we’re all excited to meet Little Elephant (from the books) in the flesh! You’ve probably noticed that we’ve added some promo videos of our books to this page, so scroll down for a taster of My Mum Is There and My Dad Will Do – both set to some fab music.
Martin is also offering an after-school children’s workshop on Thursday 25th February which will include a taster of Lifted! (a mini musical of the books) and little elephant puppet craft. This will be taking place at Oxford’s Story Museum. Tickets are free but you do need to book here workshop
The workshop is followed by an evening launch event where Martin will be doing further readings and signings. There will also be a special appearance from Little Elephant and Little Elephant’s creator, Sarah Lewis. Plus illustrator, Ag Jatkowska will be joining the throng along with publisher, Louise Jordan. It’s going to be a great evening and we’d love to have you there. Book a free ticket here launch party
