laurel remingtonWhen Andy’s school announces a new no-uniform policy, her classmates are over the moon – but her heart sinks. All she wants is to dress like everyone else, but her mum’s the owner of a kooky run-down vintage boutique, so she’s bound to look – well – different. But when Andy finds a gorgeous bag full of designer goodies in the shop’s storeroom, everything changes. Can she learn to love vintage, and help transform her mum’s shop into something truly special?

In this inter-active workshop, Laurel will use the story to show how children shouldn’t be afraid of taking risks and should believe in themselves  Laurel will introduce the characters of her new book, The Polka Dot Shop, and read a snippet of her story. The audience will also have the opportunity to design their own story – with polka dots!
