Colin Parsons will be talking about his fantasy and science-fiction books.


We have a competition for children at this year's fair. Draw or paint your favourite character from a book.  Do it at home and bring it with you to the fair, or do it at the fair - there will be paper, pencils and crayons. Prizes will be given for the best.

Meanwhile, here are some games and puzzles to try.
