Inspector Brunswick and the missing Eyebrow event

Date: March 4th,11AM

Tickets: £5 redeemable against any book.

Introducing Inspector Brunswick: The Case of the Missing Eyebrow! A funny and charming debut picture book and the first in a series starring the world’s greatest cat detective!

Join author Chris Lam Sam and illustrator Angela Keoghan, co-creators of Inspector Brunswick and his loyal assistant Nelson, for a read-along of their debut picture book here at Pickled Pepper Books.

There will also be a family activity , a special ‘expressions’ drawing workshop from Angela Keoghan. Learn how eyebrows alter facial expressions by using Angela’s very own artwork ­– try to make the Admiral’s expression change. Can you make the face happy or sad, inquisitive or surprised, cheeky or sneaky?

A perfect event around World Book Day for anyone looking to get their youngest readers enthusiastic about reading in a fun and friendly environment!

    I was hoping to get hold of signed copies of the Julian Clary books. My children saw him today and are ‘disappointed’ with me that I didn’t pre-order them. Do you have any more by any chmace?
    Thanks! Claudia
