Past Events:


Book Reading at Blackwells

The dodo had a wonderful time at Blackwells on Broad Street for story time, talks about extinct animals and colouring.










North Hinksey School

The Magic Dodo walked along Willow Walk to North Hinksey School. Not only did we read the story, but we also worked on how to write a story. Lots of exciting stories started appearing!


World Book day 

The Magic Dodo flew to StAloysius School for reading and drawing. The children looked amazing and created beautiful drawings. In year 3 we read Tobey's new adventure taking place in The Netherlands.















Blenheim Palace Book Signing

The shop at Blenheim stayed open late for Christmas shopping.

Literacy Project


Part of the proceeds of the book sales will be donated to support literacy projects in foreign countries.

I am very pleased to be sponsoring the Sambhali Project in Jodhpur, India. Sambhali focuses on the development and empowerment of women and girls. The Scholarship Project is one of their many initiatives.
