Reigate children's author's puppies' tail of woe
12:59pm Monday 10th September 2012 in News
Reigate children's writer Adrian Collman has published his latest book documenting a puppy-filled tail of woe.
Oh Puppies! is Adrian's new work and tells the story of how two puppies nearly destroy a home. Adrian said: “The amazing thing about this story is that, whilst very funny, every event in the book really actually happened, and there are real-life photos at the end of the book to prove it!”
Adrian, who as well as writing for youngsters, visits primary schools to provide creativity workshops, is a former pupil of Reigate Parish, Reigate Priory and Reigate Grammar School, and was originally known as Adrian Patterson.
He launched his new book with children at St Mary's Church Hall, Reigate.
The launch, Adrian's second there in two years, was attended by hundreds of children from Reigate and the surrounding area during the course of the evening.
He met and chatted to the youngsters, and wrote them personalised messages.
The children were also able to meet the book's illustrator, Duncan Preston.
Duncan, from Redhill, was kept very busy drawing pictures in their books for them.
All of the children were also given a balloon shaped as a puppy, provided by Jeni Paul and Christine Trusler from Reigate.
Adrian is now setting out on his tour of Surrey primary schools to tell his story of puppy mayhem, share story-telling tips and encourage pupils to become more creative.
