Last week for Book Week Scotland, Northfield Academy, where we are Patrons of Reading, organised a special Red Shoes book launch.
280 kids from local schools gathered in the assembly hall and we talked about the book, the creative process and fairy tales.
Waterstones were also there and sold lots of books.
Afterwards we took our turn to participate in Book Fit, Mandy Wilson 's great initiative: read The Red Shoes on the exercise bike! Neil Hendry the head teacher took the lead! Yesterday the pupils pedaled a total of 600km!
Huge thanks to Mandy, Neil and Karen Shaw for organising all this and making the day so special!
