Join celebrated Tamarind author, Malaika and her lastest character. Baby Ruby won’t stop crying. Dad gives her a bath, Mum gives her a feed, Nana takes her for a drive and Grandad walks her around the garden. But Ruby keeps on bawling… until big brother, Theo saves the day. The whole family is so tired after all of this, everyone falls asleep – all except little Ruby. A delightful story telling session for all the family.
For ages 2+
Malaika will be signing copies of her book after the event.

Finished copies of Zilombo by S. P. Gates have arrived and look great.
I’ve really enjoyed reading this fast-paced adventure story about Jin, and his Goth sister, Frankie, saving their baby brother, Smiler, from the extraordinary monster, Zilombo. With magic, adventure and the remarkable Mizz Z (who is clearly destined to return) this is a great addition to the growing list of Tamarind fiction. http://www.rbooks.co.uk/product.aspx?id=184853051X
Really enjoyed reading Malorie Blackman’s first Rant of 2011 http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=755040814and her thoughts on the recent Guardian piece on illiteracy and innumeracy. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/may/03/illiteracy-innumeracy-prisons.
