Eleanor and Trevor performing Galdo's Gift at the Barnes Children's Literature Festival 2017

We've performed our book at a number of festivals.  Eleanor wears masks of the various characters (Velcro proved useful) made from blown up images of our illustrations to act out the story whilst Trevor has the easier task of reading the story.  As well as free stickers and a chance for children to have their photo taken wearing the mask of their favourite character, we also hand out activity sheets for them to create their own hero character and adventure.
