Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour: Level Up with Tom Nicoll

Applications for this event are now closed.

Apply now for this fantastic virtual event for P4–7 with Tom Nicoll, author of the Level Up book series.

Growing up, Tom Nicoll was obsessed with two things – books and video games. With the Level Up book series, he has finally managed to combine these two interests by writing books about video games. Join Tom for this virtual event about his book series, why books and games are so important to him and why he thinks they're similar in many ways. Tom will also chat about why, after playing video games for so many years, he is still so bad at them!

Level Up tells the story of video game obsessed Flo, who gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself INSIDE her favourite game. Turns out, virtual reality isn't as much fun when it's not so virtual.

When applying for this event, you can choose whether to apply for an afternoon or morning session:
