Author touches down in Redditch for some reading fun

CHILDREN’S author Steve Cole took a journey through space last Friday, August 16, as he touched down to give a talk on some of his bestselling books to youngsters at Redditch Library.

Steve, author of firm favourites ‘Astrosaurs’, ‘Cows in Action’, ‘Astrosaurs Academy’ and ‘The Slime Squad’ gave a reading and also sang some of his own fun songs, including one entitled ‘Aliens Stink’.

His visit was part of a host of events happening across libraries in Worcestershire this summer.

The popular author said: “I love doing these events because I love inspiring people’s own stories, it’s just great and I love the enthusiasm from the children.

“People can expect some songs at my events as well as embarrassing stories from my childhood.”

Steve’s books are available to buy online at or from good Redditch bookshops and they can of course also be borrowed from Redditch Library.
