We were delighted to host a book signing event with Katherine Richardson, to celebrate her debut children's picture book Diary of a Red Handfish.
Have you ever seen a fish with hands? Beneath the seaweed, hiding amongst the sand, lives a strange little critter called a handfish...
This is its story, in words and illustrations aimed at the 7 to 10 year old market.
