Stonely's Roaring Year So Far!

Calling all Stonely fans!

Stonely fans will recall that last September, Stonely's Pet Dinosaur became a finalist in the children's section of the UK's The People's Book Prize competition.  Well, voting is now underway to find an overall winner!  The general public are the exclusive voters.  

Therefore, if you would like to see Stonely' s Pet Dinosaur as your worthy winner, I would be thrilled if you could click on the logo below to register and cast your vote!  It only takes a few minutes, and is free!  Voting ends soon  on 10th July.

Colouring is cool!

Regular readers of my blog may remember that a Stonely's Pet Dinosaur colouring competition was featured in the Kids' Corner section of the summer 2015 edition of the South West Wales Primary Times.  The winning entries were announced in the October 2015 half-term edition.

I think the winning entries are dino-tastic.  

I was very impressed by the imaginative and neatly coloured-in designs.

Well done to all the winners, who received a copy of Stonely's Pet Dinosaur as their prize! 

If you would like to try your hand at colouring in some superb Stonely pictures, please click on the dot-to-dot colouring-in sheet below to download some copies.  

Fantastic fossil fun!

During a blustery weekend in February, Stonely's Pet Dinosaur took part in a Family Fun Day event at the Dinosaur Isle museum on the Isle of Wight.  The museum is Britain's first purpose built dinosaur museum and visitor attraction. 

Throughout the day, I did numerous readings of Stonely's Pet Dinosaur to captivated young audiences who just loved to ROARRR!!!  

My loyal sons acted as my patient prop hands.  

I also signed books for the young Stonely fans.

Colourful dinosaur-themed balloons proved a great success with the young visitors...

...who also enjoyed colouring in Stonely pictures.

Thank you, Dinosaur Isle, for inviting us to your Family Fun Day event.  We all had a wonderful time!

Stonely has landed in libraries again!

Stonely's Pet Dinosaur can now be borrowed from Essex Libraries as well as London Borough of Redbridge Libraries!

Thank you to everyone who has supported Stonely's Pet Dinosaur!

Keep on reading, roaring and voting!
