First published in 2008, Guy’s books have since been translated into several languages. He has also written plays for both adults and children. Guy has previously been a theatre producer, actor and illustrator. His current illustration work includes The Munglers Trumps cards, a library-based reading incentive project.
A Visit from Guy
Guy’s event is an interactive (and active!) combination of stand-up, reading, pictures, props and occasionally even a bit of dressing up. His high-octane performance explores his childhood aspirations and inspirations and includes animated readings from his books. Suitable for Years 3-6 with no real limit on numbers.
Of course, it's good for everyone if books are available to buy at the event! They can be ordered through a local bookseller (who will also handle sales) or directly through the publishers at a discount. In this case, someone will need to be on hand to sell the books. To order books and publicity material (posters/postcards/show cards) please contact Kate Smith at Stripes Publishing or firstname.lastname@example.org for Scholastic books.

Guy will get to you by train (and cab or collection from the station).

You’ll be invoiced by Liz Scott after the event.
