Brace yourself London, here come the bloggers!

On Sunday we had a blogging trip to London. This is like a normal trip, but you blog about it. Plus we brought an extra blogger as Daisy’s Amazing Random Stuff Extravaganza came too. She even offered to wear glasses, even though she has perfect eyesight. That’s the effect of the Eljae. And here we are!:

We went to the Southbank Centre Imagination Children’s festival, where there was a discussion by children’s authors who’d won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. It’s World Book Day season so we were in the mood for some AUTHOR CHAT.

First of all we saw Cathy Cassidy signing books, and took a sneaky pic. Look there she is in the background behind El.

Thumbs up for Cathy Cassidy

Then we saw Michael Rosen, Liz Pichon, Louise Rennison and Philip Ardagh talking about their books. They were super funny. Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!! LR even irish danced for us.

And then we met Louise Rennison, who wrote Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging and Withering Tights.

We love Louise Rennison!

Thank you to the Southbank Centre for giving us tickets to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. They have lots of cool events for kids and families so check them out.

It was a beautiful sunny day by the river, we had ice cream and there was wifi, which is all you need for a bloggers’ day out.
