Rolo spent Saturday morning at Hungerford Library meeting new fans and presenting prizes to children who had entered the writing competition sponsored by Hungerford Book Shop. Debi explained how Rolo wrote both of the books ‘The Secret Adventures of Rolo’ himself and why he appears so tired during the day – because he is out adventuring via a time tunnel found in Athelstan’s oak tree on Savernake Forest by night! He is very proud of his second adventure book called The Chilvester Passage which is just out.

The quality of the 30 entries for the children’s writing competition was very good and made judging difficult. The brief was to write a poem or beginning of a story with the words ‘The mist was rising. I was lost.’

Rolo was slightly annoyed that he didn’t get to meet Kate Adie at the speaker’s reception in The Corn Exchange last night. He would have regaled her with his own battle stories. Debi had a wonderful chat with the venerable broadcaster, reminiscing about time spent in Dubai.

The third Hungerford Literary Festival is running until 22 October.
