Estonian writer Kätlin Vainola will be joined by illustrator Ulla Saar who together produced the delightfully quirky picture book Lift in which the hero is…a lift! Poet, songwriter and children’s author Kätlin Vainola amuses us with her vain Mrs Octopus, an electronics-addicted hedgehog, and a cheeky pair of school girls, just a few of the funny characters who ride in Lift.

You’ll never feel the same about going up or down in a lift again! Introduced by Nicolette Jones, children’s editor of The Sunday Times

Bicycling to the Moon Finnish Timo Parvela, author of Bicycling to the Moon and illustrator Virpi Talvitie, one of Finland’s most prestigious illustrators will be talking about their book to Nicolette Jones, children’s editor of the Sunday Times.

Bicycling to the Moon has two characters who live together, a dreamy poet cat and a practical dog, who fight – like cat and dog! But they always make up, and children will love their spats. Made into a TV show in Finland, Bicycling to the Moon is a bit like a marriage guide, how two very different characters manage to live together happily.
