|Now, children, let's talk about plotting the perfect crime . . .|
While Emily was talking about her NOT ONE BUT TWO brilliant new crime novels in the main shop, where sensible grown ups were enjoying cold white wine and nibbles, I was having great fun chatting with lots of enthusiastic and imaginative kids about evil laughs, how you could steal five metric tonnes of Nutella or the world's biggest egg hat, inventing the Bugatti Sprout and re-enacting scenes from the Mystery of the Black Salamander.
The only downside was that I couldn't hear Emily's talk at the same time - but at least we had all the squash and jammy dodgers!
|Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is not!|
