Who … Magnie !? Written a book !? Good Grief !!

12 Noon - 2 PM

Possibly you’re wondering what the film Madagascar, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo have to do with a book signing in Shetland ? It’s a long story really, but I have this similarity to Melman - we share the same tailor - and Gloria and I bonded at Busta House one night.

If perchance ( I have waited years to use that word ) you may feel you want to know more, then the book ‘Cats, Clouds and Flatpacks’ includes a passing reference to them, in among a few other stories.

Having read it you come to the conclusion that the writer may well be a few clowns short of a circus, you are probably quite correct. But I hope you have a giggle finding out.

So if you’re in town on Saturday 21st between 12 and 2 and find yourself outside the Shetland Times shop, come in and say hello. Otherwise I’m going to look a right numpty sitting there all on my own with my bag of jelly babies and a biro pen :)


  1. I'm sorry I'm going to miss your book signing -remember to put a book aside! have a great day and remember to share your jelly babies, people are sure to say hello if you do!x
