An Eerie Event….

Saturday 29th October, 3pm

Halloween at St Spectre’s school brings out the cheekiest of ghosts! In Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Spooky School, the much-loved picture book pair of pooches appear for the first time in a two-colour fiction format, ideal for children growing in confidence as readers and beginning to read alone.

Join Shifty Illustrator Steven Lenton for some Spooky fun including decorating some bat cookies!


Please call 0203 6320823 or e-mail us: info@pickledpepperbooks.co.uk to reserve a place
