[The Children's Bookshow] gives children the opportunity to meet famous authors and illustrators, an opportunity they would not normally have. It also brings books to life when they understand that the author is a real person, something they sometimes have difficulty in recognising when reading and analysing work. The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and enjoyed joining in with the performance Michael gave. They were thrilled that he signed the poems, booklets and pictures that they had prepared and there was a buzz when returning to school as they shared their experience.
