WORLD BOOK DAY TEEN FEST TWITTER TAKEOVER!

World Book Day Teen Fest Twitter Takeover

As part of this year's World Book Day, a special WBD Teen Fest is taking place on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th March, with lots of special online events. Click here for full details.


Over the course of the two evenings, the @WBDTeenFest Twitter account will be taken over by eight authors (see schedule on right).


Readers will be able to tweet questions and chat to the authors while they're online.


I'm delighted to be involved, and will be online on Thursday between 19:35 and 19:55 (UK GMT).


Simply tweet @WBDTeenFest with the hashtag #askDC9000 to ask me a question. You can tweet questions in advance and I'll answer them during my takeover slot, or tweet me live on Thursday night. Hope to see you there!

I really like the design of these two kits sent in by Mario Shehu. They remind me a bit of my favourite Birmingham City 'penguin' kit—especially the blue, white and green one in the background. Great stuff, thanks Mario.

 

These fantastic kits were designed by Year 6 pupils at St. Saviour's School in E14. (click the shirt to see the full set)
