The Gargoyle Overhead flies into Chapters!
Philippa Dowding and her gargoyle puppet visited Chapters (Runnymede) in Toronto on Saturday May 22, 2010.
Philippa read from her books The Gargoyle in My Yard (2009) and The Gargoyle Overhead (2010), both published by Napoleon. Reading from her first book, Philippa gave the audience a taste of what it might be like to have a naughty 400-year-old gargoyle named Gargoth living in your backyard.
After giving clues from her second book, Philippa asked children and their parents to guess where Gargoth’s best friend, another gargoyle named Ambergine, was searching for him throughout Toronto.
Philippa signed lots of books, gave out plenty of bookmarks, and as usual was happy to share her gargoyle puppet with fans!
