Look out! The aliens are coming! And there’s only a month to go!

It’s not every book festival that can boast such unusual guests.  But thanks to writer and illustrator team Michelle Robinson and Fred Blunt we are expecting some very special aliens in the library for the Bradford on Avon Mini Book Festival on Saturday 14 July.

Michelle and Fred will be introducing their brand new book Grandmas from Mars

Fred and Nell’s grandma is babysitting, but she’s acting rather strangely… Hang on – is that a spare eyeball? That’s NOT grandma; it’s an alien! RUUUUUUN!

Get ready for a completely crazy and brilliantly bonkers story telling and drawing session.

Michelle Robinson

Quite frankly, anything could happen. Michelle looks the very picture of sensiblenessnessness here, but don’t be fooled, you haven’t seen her dressed up as a sausage!

We can’t wait to find out what excitement she and Fred have cooked up for us this time. One thing’s for sure though – it’s going to be out of this world!

And that’s not all. Fred is running a master class in character creation for all your budding young illustrators. Design a character and put them straight into a story!
