Cheltenham Festival

October 8, 2011

What a lovely time I had in Cheltenham! It was great to meet such an enthusiastic audience of children and grown-ups all enjoying poems from the RSPB Anthology of Wildlife Poetry.  And all my little origami swans and mice and snails found new homes!

If you were there, do stop by on my blog here to say hello! And, if you weren’t there, then here’s one of the little poems you missed. (Everyone took this poem home with them – in their heads!)

Mr Snail

Quaint and quirky, never quick,
Mother Nature’s glue-stick.
Hard shell, tacky tail,
Glue the garden, Mister Snail.

poem © Celia Warren 2011
from The RSPB Anthology of Wildlife Poetry
ISBN 978 1 4081 3118 3

      Thanks, Doda. Everyone who’s got a copy tells me how lovely it is, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

    It is a very lovely book indeed. And would make a wonderful Christmas gift for anyone.

    Celia is too modest to tell you that she was wonderful! I and all the other children in the audience were transfixed. Festival organisers, book her now!
