On Saturday 03rd February, Pickled Pepper Books had the honour to host an event with the talented award-winning author Zehra Hicks, introducing her latest book, Giraffe and Frog (Two Hoots, Pan Macmillan). This witty and colourful picture book relates the story of two friends who decide to go to the beach. If Giraffe is happily leading the way, Frog is convinced that it is not the right route! But…how do you deal with a friend that is not listening?
The session started in the late afternoon, at 3 pm, with Zehra Hicks explaining how she invented her characters. It was followed by an entertaining and interactive reading from the author.
Then, after the story, it was kids' time to express their imagination through a puppet-making workshop! Children left with their creations and some lovely Giraffe and Frog’s lapel pins. The event ended in a jolly atmosphere, by the author’s book signing! And if you too, would like a signed copy of Giraffe and Frog, hurry up, some are still available at the bookstore!
