Welcome to Oddleigh Launch Party with Tor Freeman

Acclaimed author and illustrator Tor Freeman will be here to launch her new Bog Eyed Books collection Welcome to Oddleigh on Thursday 4th October, 7-9pm!

Sendak Fellowship winner Tor is the creator of numerous picture books, including the popular Digby Dog and Olive series. But Tor has also been a keen comics creator on the side, producing a webcomic that she has self-published into print, and in November 2017 was the winner of the Observer/Cape/Comica graphic short story prize (you can read her entry here). 

So we're very pleased that Gary Northfield and Nicky Evans of Bog Eyed Books are continuing their work of showcasing excellent British kids cartoonists and giving Tor's webcomic, Welcome to Oddleigh, the profile it deserves with a lovely new collection!

"Chief Inspector Jessie and Sergeant Sid are tasked with policing the town of Oddleigh. Oddleigh is no ordinary place; strange things and bizarre behaviour are the order of the day. But Jessie's sworn to uphold the law of the town, and she's going to do it - no matter how weirdly its citizens are behaving..."

Tor will be here to sign books, maybe do a little sketch here and there, and raise a toast to the launch of Welcome to Oddleigh on Thursday, October 4th, 7-9pm. Be there or be...well...just be there!
