Save Sydenham Library

Yesterday we took part in a special event at our local library, which is under the threat of closure. The place was packed with people, all there to lend their support and listen to the various author readings and speeches. Thanks to Louise Brooks for doing such a great job of organising things and to everyone who helped us sing our Monster Tomato song.

Let’s hope this nationwide day of action, to save libraries all over the country, can make a difference.┬áLibraries were really important to Karen and I when we were growing up. They played a vital role in inspiring us to write and illustrate books of our own. Without them, Stripy Horse might not have seen the light of day.

Here we are before they released lots of balloons to mark the end of the event…
