Nattalingo's natter - episode 10

This episode is a one-off: it is an audio diary (hardly edited at all) of my visit to Montreuil from 30th November until 3rd December 2018. My aim was to meet authors and discover new picture books... but I got so much more, as you will hear when you listen!

This is a one-off episode and therefore a different format from normal: it is an audio diary of my visit to the Salon du Livre et de la Presse Jeunesse in Montreuil, where I was from 30th November until 3rd December 2018. My aim was to meet some authors and discover new picture books... but I got so much more, as you will find out when you listen!

I have hardly edited this episode at all so you get an authentic version of what happened as it happened. I am very excited to be sharing this with you all.
