Montgomery Bonbon - Murder at the Museum

The Book Club is still on the road, this week at the Norwich Playhouse with flame-haired (though not on fire) stand up and author Alasdair Beckett-King talking about his fab children's book series, Montgomery Bonbon. Find out the unusual way in which he got a book deal, why he wanted to write about a 10 year old girl who transforms into a male detective with an indistinguishable foreign accent, the challenge of writing jokes for kids and for making a book that appeals to all kids. Plus Dr Who, making fantastic videos like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kH-CfCaMl8, how online success has led to stand up tours and creating an image that makes you recognisable at distance from behind!
