Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour: Choose Your Own Story, Solve Your Own Mystery

Applications for this event are now closed.

Apply now for this next level online event for P4–7 with authors Gareth P. Jones and Simon Tudhope.

Join award-winning author Gareth P. Jones and Simon Tudhope for a fascinating discussion about their shared love for choose-your-own-adventure books where readers shape the story. Expect lots of book chat, some singing, audience participation and the chance for pupils to ask Gareth and Simon all their burning questions.

Gareth P. Jones is a Blue Peter award-winning author of over 40 books for children of all ages. He is also a regular school visiting author and a festival performer. Gareth's books, songs and shows cover many hilarious subjects: from ninja meerkats and steampunk pirates to dragon detectives, bureaucratic ghosts and alien-fighting pets!

Before becoming an author, Simon Tudhope worked in Moscow as sports editor for a local paper. These days, he writes about things that aren't actually real but are very important nevertheless – monsters, dragons, superheroes – all the sort of stuff he loved as a child and still does.

Live virtual events will go ahead with a limited schools audience. We'll then share a recording of the event on our website to watch on demand. Applications are open to anyone who wants to join live.
