Fabio is the world’s greatest flamingo detective. He might not be tall or strong, but he’s very, very clever. And when his plane crash-lands in a town with no water, he nose-dives straight into a new mystery.

This is Laura James’s third Fabio book and will appeal to animal-lovers and detective fans alike. Hear her talk about her unusual hero, his love of pink lemonade and crime-solving skills – and discover how to draw the characters too with a live demonstration from illustrator Emily Fox. Please bring a sketchbook and pencil.

Remember: Just like going to the cinema or theatre, all children need to be accompanied at BookFest events, so adults need to buy seats too.
