But my favourite was Ivor's: I could be a footballer bouncing up and down, You could be a popstar arriving in town!
Songs and stories, role play and mask making - all in a morning's work at the Dulwich Books Festival in south London. I was there with I Could Be, You Could Be as part of a day-long appearance by various writers from CWISL.
The morning was for the little ones and the afternoon was for readers and writers aged 9 and above. If you're a budding reader and writer, take a look at our new online creative magazine. Visit http://www.shoutaboutmagazine.com/

It's a cake. Really. Honestly! And it's unique because it took the front covers or characters from 26 different children's books and recreated them in edible form.
It was made to celebrate the mass launch of books written by 26 authors and/or illustrators, all of whom belong to British SCBWI. The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is the best support network for published and unpublished writers and illustrators for children. They chose the rocket from the front cover of I Could Be, You Could Be - it's there, in the left-hand corner. And very tasty it was, too!

Thanks to all the children (and their grown-ups) who helped to make the event such a memorable one, especially those who travelled such a long way to be with us.
