Are You Sitting Comfortably?


We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Leigh will not be able to join us at Nunnington Hall. We will still be reading from her fantastic book and making some crafts based on the story.

We very much look forward to welcoming Leigh to Ryedale in the near future.

Join one small book lover’s search for the perfect place to sit (just for a bit!) with this beautifully illustrated and designed picture book by the talented Leigh Hodgkinson.

Leigh Hodgkinson is the talent behind picture books such as Colin and the Snoozebox , Goldilocks and Just the One Bear and Don’t Dip Your Chips in Your Drink, Kate to name but a few. She is an award-winning animator who was art director on the BAFTA-award winning series Charlie and Lola. Leigh has an amazing eye for colour, design, print and pattern. She lives in Lewes, near Brighton, with her husband and their two young children.

Leigh will be telling stories and hosting an interactive workshop for children at 11am – 12pm and 1.30pm – 2.30pm.
