Powers - Dublin and Waterford

Just back from a week in Ireland promoting The Powers - Not-so-Super Superheroes with the author Kevin Stevens. The book was chosen as the UNESCO Dublin Citywide Read so there are stacks in all the libraries at home.

I spotted a lovely display of The Powers and Bye-Bye Baby Brother! in the local bookshop in Waterford City...


...and a lovely Powers display with poster in the window of Hodges Figgis.


I met so many brilliant, funny, enthusiastic kids. We did workshops in Merrion Square for the Paddy's Day Festival as well as talks in Waterford as part of Waterford Writer's Weekend and I did some library visits around Dublin city. I forgot to take photos of the kids doing their fantastic drawings but here is one picture of a drawing that a dedicated young illustrator called Jack drew for me. We did a swap in the end. BOOM! What great skills. 


I'm really looking forward to illustrating the sequel to The Powers in the autumn, I've heard it said on the grapevine that dogs feature heavily. What could be more fun.
