Waterstones Event

I was delighted to be invited along to Waterstones book shop in Cambridge to talk about The Phoenix Code and to lead some Ancient Egyptian themed activities. It was so much fun to chat to lots of children - including some familar faces I've met before on school visits.

Everyone listened politely as I talked about the legend of the benben stone and the bennu bird on which The Phoenix Code is based.  Then I read a passage from the book (in which Ryan makes a daring escape from a temple at night, comes face to face with a snake and hurtles through a market place on a runaway donkey cart). 

Then I signed some books (I loved sitting in the golden chair!)
