Pre-schoolers are invited to join Victoria for a picture-book-themed forest school session in Howard Davis Park – THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR (Wed 21) and THE GRUFFALO (Thurs 22) in Howard Davis Park, in the grounds of our festival village. No booking needed!
Victoria is Jersey-born and bred and lives there with her three children and husband. She was inspired to write her book (The Pocket-Sized Not-so-Fluffy Guide to Life – for Teens) after spending hours reading psychology books and her own interactions with hundreds of children in schools. She wanted to write something that she wished she could have read as a teenager – something to help navigate through the tough times. She set herself a target and got up at 5am, 5 days a week, for six months so that she could write for 2 hours before getting her children up and ready for school. Her daughter, Winnie, edited the book and hopes to be an author one day too.
