Blue Peter Award Winner Guy Bass at Manchester Central Library, 30th June: Sneak Peak here!



Talk about ribbiting reads! (Sorry!) Released earlier this year, The Legend of Frog by children’s author Guy Bass is the first of a three-part series which mixes fairy tale, fantasy and sci-fi – to hilarious effect.

Now the award-winning writer and illustrator, whose childhood ambition was to be a superhero (alas, his Spiderman costume no longer fits), is set to appear at Manchester Central Library as part of the 2014  Manchester Children’s Book Festival.

So, you’d better hopto it (ugh).
Guy’s most recent works are preceded by previous successes such as the Stitch Head and Dinkin Dings series, the latter having won the Blue Peter Book Award in 2010. Having previously been a theatre producer and actor he has also written numerous plays, both for adults and children. Since first being published in 2008, Guy’s books have been translated into more than ten languages worldwide!
His latest work is a book entitled We Are Super! Aimed at early readers as part of the Little Red Robin series, it tells the story of Jonny and Tommy Atomic, whose dad is a world famous (you guessed it) superhero – Captain Atomic!
MCBF organisers are genuinely excited about Guy’s appearance at the festival, saying, “Guy’s lively performances are always firm favourites and we’re thrilled to have him back in Manchester for this event. Not to be missed!”

Guy Bass will be appearing at Manchester Central Library on Monday 30th June. Tickets for event can be booked here.

The event is suitable for all readers aged 7 and above.
