Tim Warnes: Meet Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing

Join local award-winning author and illustrator of DANGEROUS! and WARNING! This Book May Contain Rabbits Tim Warnes, as he brings his lovable characters Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing to life. Enjoy stories, live drawing and plenty of labelling (because that’s Mole’s absolute top thing to do!).

Tim Warnes has been creating children’s picture books for over 20 years, and is married to fellow author-illustrator Jane Chapman. He has worked on more than 80 books, including the family favourites I Don’t Want To Go To Bed!, NO!, and The Great Cheese Robbery. In 2015 DANGEROUS! was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. When he’s not creating picture books, Tim likes to play clawhammer banjo, go birding, sculpt and read comic strips. He lives out in the sticks in Dorset.

DANGEROUS! Is a story about acceptance and the importance of getting to know people before we make judgements about them. Children will be able to empathise with both Mole for getting cross and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing who’s reduced to tears. Parents will be entertained by Tim’s engaging style and we guarantee an hour of warmth and fun.

For children aged 5-8 years

I enjoyed my festival event in Dorchester very much. What a friendly welcome the audience gave me! Good luck with future festivals -- and well done.

Paul was an excellent interviewer, and I loved the format. Great audience, acoustics...

Feedback From 2015 Festival

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

Congratulations to the whole Lit Fest team. I am glad it has been such a well-deserved success! The huge effort put into it is very clear to see, it is great when that is acknowledged and rewarded! We have been very happy to host the event -we are all very proud to be involved with the Lit Fest...
