Zoe Antoniades
Book launch signing (outside the shop)
free (please RSVP)

  Last year, the brilliant Zoe launched the first of her Cally and Jimmy books (perfect for early readers approx 6+yrs) with a highly successful socially-distanced meet-and-greet outside the Alligator's Mouth. The event was a huge success and we look forward to having Zoe back to launch another book of four short stories, in which the twins make a splash on their beach holiday, run into trouble on sports day, get spooked while trick or treating and uncover a thief at school.

To attend the book launch outside the shop on 25th April 12-3pm, please RSVP via email or phone 020 8948 6775.

Even if you can't attend, you're welcome to pre-order and request a signature and dedication.

Pre-order Cally & Jimmy Twintastic, to be signed and dedicated by the author on 25th April
