Don Calame encounters with Grey Friar’s Bobby and avoiding eating Haggis in Edinburgh

We have just returned from 3 fabulous fun filled days in Edinburgh with Swim the Fly author Don Calame.

This was Don’s first visit to Edinburgh so it was a treat to be able to show him around the sights of this great city (although his resistance to eating deep fried haggis was impossible to penetrate).

After a frantic day of school visits and interviews Don had well and truly charmed the teens of Scotland who were in stitches as he read extracts form his hilarious book (one boy almost fell of his chair he was laughing so heartily) here is a photo of Don with the three lucky young journalists who got the chance to interview Don for Teen Titles.

With thanks to the Scottish Book Trust who made us so welcome and to Julie from Blackwell's who accompanied us with her mobile book shop and a huge smile!
