Readings and workshops with Candy Gourlay

Candy Gourlay is an award winning children’s novelist whose books have been listed for many prizes including the Blue Peter, the Carnegie, the Waterstones and the Guardian Prize. Is it a Mermaid? is her first picture book, set in a sun-drenched island in her native Philippines. The story is about identity, kindness and friendship but will be a great jumping off point for Key Stage 2 themes of conservation and the environment. A sought-after speaker, Candy will use story and art to transport her young audiences to life under the sea.
