Julia Donaldson wows the crowds
Thursday 10th October 2013
The former Children's Laureate and best-selling author Julia Donaldson put on a fabulous show this week for hundreds of local schoolchildren from several local schools. With her husband Malcolm on guitar and two other actors, they brought to life some of her best known and best loved stories including A Squash and A Squeeze, and of course The Gruffalo, who had the audience squealing with excitement. The line to buy signed copies of her books was even longer than it had been earlier in the day at Waterstones.
