15 Days Telephone Box Bingo!

A telephone box is featured on the front cover of 15 Days Without a Head and plays an important role in the story. As a result I've found myself taking pictures of red phone boxes I see on my travels. 

Join me in a game of Telephone Box Bingo and send me your photos* – extra points will be awarded if you're pictured inside the box! (Don't forget to include the location.) 

See if you can find any of the telephone boxes I've been to so far:

Llaneglwys, Wales

St. Peters Place, Brighton

Powys, Wales

Moor Street Station, Birmingham

Crickadarn, Wales

Pelham Square, Brighton

Westfields, Talgarth

Grand Avenue, Hove

* Email your photos to dave(AT)davecousins(DOT)net or upload to my Facebook page.

Characters come to life at Lockers Park School Book Day!

On Friday evening I was invited to Lockers Park School to join in their Book Day celebrations. Students were dressed as characters from some of their favourite books, so I found myself having a conversation with Stanley Yelnats from Holes and Torak from Wolf Brother when I arrived!

I had a great evening talking with the boys about books, writing and comics. Thanks to Jeanette Harlow and all the staff and students for making me so welcome.
