A few weeks ago I took my children to an author event at our local bookshop (Guisborough), who may I add had amazing staff. This event was for my almost 4 year old Alexis. The author that was featuring was someone called Richard O’Neill who writes children’s books.
Alexis as always was really excited, she loves readng and anything that involves some form of adventure, which clearly this was.
Richard started by introducing himself and some of his woodcraft before reading them the story of Polonius the Pit Pony, his latest book.
Alexis was engrossed, she really enjoyed it. Once the story was over we had a chat with the author and it was really nice. Richard is a really friendly person and seems to get real joy from reading and interacting with children. Alexis is usually quite shy but she had a good little conversation with Richard about the Pony.
We bought a copy of the book which Richard generously signed for us. Later that night Alexis requested it to be read again before bed. The illustrations are stunning, such a lovely book.

Thanks for reading.
