The Upcoming Tour

The Children's Bookshow is moving steadily towards confirming all the theatre dates on the upcoming tour and we are delighted that Benji Davies has agreed to take part this year.

Benji will be performing at the Arnolfini in Bristol on Tuesday 14th October at 1.30pm and running two free workshops in Bristol Primary schools on Wednesday 15th October. Every child who takes part in a workshop will receive a free copy of The Storm Whale, Benji's recent picture book about a small boy and a stranded whale. 

Benji has just been nominated for the Booktrust Best Book Award which is also great news.

More info about Benji and The Storm Whale can be found at his website and on the Simon and Schuster website.

You can also follow him on Twitter under @Benji_Davies and find him on facebook under Benji Davies - Illustrator.
The bookshow website with all the updated tour details for this year will go live at the beginning of May. We are really excited to be introducing such brilliant authors and illustrators to a whole new wave of young people, and look forward to sharing more news soon.
