SHREWSBURY CHILDREN’S BOOKFEST

MAY FESTIVAL 2015

HOLLY WEBB'S "ANIMAL STORIES"

SATURDAY 2ND MAY & SUNDAY 3RD MAY 2015

SATURDAY 2ND MAY:

Holly Webb came to Shrewsbury to talk about the real animals behind her hugely successful books.  Holly has written no less than thirty massively popular animal stories, many of them based on her own pets.  At her event, there was lovely story telling, chat and a chance for her fans to ask her lots of questions.

Holly is the best-selling author of lots of brilliant books for children.

 

She read Classics at Cambridge and was working as a children’s book editor when she began writing for children.

 

Holly wrote her first book on trains, and had to leave it on someone’s desk with a note as she was too scared to say she’d written it.

 

Since then she has written over ninety books including the Animal Stories, My Naughty Little Puppy and Maisie Hitchins series. In 2012 she wrote The Clever Little Kitten for World Book Day.  Holly usually works on the sofa, which is much more comfortable than a train.

 

Holly lives near Reading with her family and a cat.

"My daughter and I love your books and are currently enjoying the cat magic series. They are truly mesmerising!!"

 

"I love your books I have read 25 of them I would love to read your new books that are coming out soon Your books are my favourite in the whole world."

 

"I really like your books! They are funny and creative."
