Last week James and I were invited down to Chessington World of Adventures Resort for a ‘Chessington Story School’ hosted by Binky Felsted and Kevin Graal. The event was lots of fun, and Kevin shared some top tips on how to keep kids enthralled when you read to them. There’s a video blog all about it and, some of the Chessington Story School for you all to enjoy.

Kevin Graal is nothing short of wonderful, he was fantastic engaging with all of the children and making a real effort to remember all their names. James was feeling a little shy, and didn’t want to go to the front with some of the other kids, but was very much up for it when I got dragged out to be a ‘cheeky monkey’ with the children. Alas, I wasn’t able to film myself looking like a fool, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.




Something very interesting that has come from the event are the publicity photos. They actually show inside Room on the Broom – A Magical Journey! The outside is still very much under construction, but the inside is looking pretty good! So.. while you wait for me to edit the blog, have a look at these pictures of inside the Room on the Broom – A Magical Journey
