Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour: Our Environment with Abi Elphinstone

Applications for this event are now closed. This page is for information only.

From living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia to kayaking through the Norwegian fjords, bestselling author Abi Elphinstone will be talking about the real-life adventures and accidental daydreams behind her stories. She’ll be speaking about the latest book in her Unmapped Chronicles series, The Crackledawn Dragon – a voyage across a secret kingdom full of silver whales, fire krakens, and underwater palaces. She'll also be sharing how her own experiences and adventures in the natural world inspire her magical realms and beast as well as showing kids how easy it is to leap into stories of their own . . .

Following the lift of some Coronavirus restrictions, we are pleased to offer this in-person school visit which will be carefully planned with each successful school.
