Join the brilliant Guardian cartoonist and children’s author and illustrator Ros Asquith for a fab hour of family fun. Asquith, creator of the acclaimed Alien Schoolboy and Teenage Worrier books, has just written her first collection of children’s poetry – and she’s illustrated it too.
She will be reading some of her poems from Vanishing Trick at The Beacon, Wantage, on October 27 – as well as showing some of her pictures and helping you draw with squiggles. Here’s one of her poems…
Life is dull for a dragon.
For a dragon, time drags on.
Frighten kid, eat princess,
Breathe fire, cause distress.
Day after deadly day, the same.
Eat, scare, sleep, flame.
Tuesday, October 27. 2pm. The Beacon.
For families with children aged 5 – 10. Tickets: £3 per person (Children must be accompanied by an adult)
