ASTROSAURS in CHELTENHAM (and LITHUANIA?)

22 Sep 2018

Well, hello!

I just thought I would write to say I’m doing an Astrosaurs and Cows in Action event at the Cheltenham Festival on Saturday 6th October. I’ll be talking about other things too, like my brand new Doctor Who book for the 13th Doctor, COMBAT MAGICKS and my new compendium of cautionary tales, Ten Nasty Little Toads. And there’ll be songs and silliness and stuff as usual.

On the same day I’m interviewing Anthony Horowitz on stage about Alex Rider and James Bond, so I’ll be keeping busy.

Meanwhile, a friend of mine went to a dinosaur theme park in Lithuania and spotted some pictures on the wall that reminded him of certain Astrosaurs characters… what do you think?!

  • Wow – a Thirteenth Doctor book from you already! I’m really excited for the new series, and it’s great to see some Astrosaur-spotting abroad. Clearly none of them are Teggs, which makes sense. He’s never one for a holiday when he could be having an adventure!

  • Hi I love astrosaurs and I like drawing the characters and making new ones. Me and my mama also make up new stories.
    would u like to see some of my drawings?
    Are you coming to London anytime soon?

    • Hi Rocky, that sounds really cool. I’d love to see some of your drawings. If you’d like to send something to PRH Children’s Books, 80 Strand, London they will be sent on to me (though this can take a little while!). I’ll try to post next time I’m coming to London. Thanks!

  • Hi Steve,
    I brought my year 3/4 class to see you at the Beeline Festival in Worcester this week. I just wanted to say what a fantastic time they had. Here is a review that two of them wrote for our newsletter:

    On Tuesday, Class 3 went to the Beeline Festival at the Hive. We met Steve Coles, the author of the Astrosaurbooks. He told us about his superhero books and he was just the funniest person ever. He jumped off the stage and asked us questions and we created a superhero called the Amazing Snake Person. Afterwards, he told us stories of how he got ideas for his books. He was hilarious and out of this world –like the Astrosaurs. We all had a fantastic day!

    I thought you would like the feedback! We all had a go at creating our own superheroes the next day using your handy format and the kids came up with some fantastic ideas. Many thanks indeed.
