Capercaillie Stickers

15 Aug

20140815_155322

They’ve arrived! I really love them. I’ll be giving them to children at the Edinburgh International Book Festival events I’m doing on Monday and Thursday next week and at the Inverness Book Festival on Saturday 23rd August.

Choosing text and images

I wanted two types of sticker so the children could choose the character they identify best with. The red squirrel, Hazel is an older sister type character. She’s quite confident while Cameron the capercaillie is much less sure of himself (but he grows and changes through out the story).

The title of the book is ‘Can’t Dance Cameron‘ but I didn’t want to put that on a sticker – I don’t think children would want that as a label. I wanted to encourage the children so I chose a line from the book from Hazel:

You can dance!

And the final thing the crowd shouts at Cameron:

Kick it, Cameron!

I’m excited (and a bit nervous!) to say both Edinburgh Book Festival events next week are SOLD OUT!

But you can still get tickets to the Inverness Book Festival here.

Make your own stickers and badges

The stickers were created using schoolstickers.com funky sticker maker. You can upload your own images and choose text and the great thing is, they don’t charge for the design – just for the stickers themselves.
