Stories read by Santa!

This Christmas, head over to Waterstones in Bedford on the 20th December for a slightly different visit to Santa. Children can come and visit Santa to be read a Christmas story; 'The Little Stocking Filler', which is a new children's story book. It has been written by local author Gerard Gray and illustrated by local renowned illustrator, Katy Dynes.

The story is about a 'little stocking filler' who meets with peril on his very last delivery of the night, It's perfect for children aged between 3 and 7 years to enjoy. The author, Gerard Gray, has worked at conditioning racing drivers in F1 for the last 20 years. This slightly different transition to writing brings us this great story, written in memory of his Nan, who used to tell him endless tales of Christmases with her 'tormenting brothers.'

Readings will be at 10.30am and 2pm, and the author and illustrator will be present to sign and doodle. Bedford's 'The Frog's Chorus' will be having a Christmas sing-along at 12noon.

Come and experience a great story being told in a magically Christmassy way, this Saturday 20th December. A great event for young children.
