Waterstones in Oban is hosting a special storytelling morning as part of Book Week Scotland on Saturday November 20, starting at 10am till around 11.30am. The event is free to all.

Kilchrenan-based author Alan Windram, who is also a director of children’s publisher Little Door Books, will read from his own One Button Benny picture books, as well as reading other stories published by Little Door Books. These include Scaredy Bat by Jonathan Meres and Anders Frang, Pinkie and Boo by Chae Strathie and Francis Martin; The Girl Who Stole The Stars by Corrina Campbell, and A Dragon Story by Madeline Pinkerton.

He said this week: ‘I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part in this fun, interactive picture book event at Waterstones in Oban as part of Book Week Scotland. It is great to get back to real live events with an actual audience. I will be reading both of my One Button Benny books plus other stories from some of our recently published Little Door Books.

‘There will be songs, stories and even some robot dancing. Adults are very welcome to join in the fun too.’

The event is suitable for children ages three to six years old.

Book Week Scotland runs from November 15-21.
