Join author and comedian David Baddiel as he invites you into the hilarious world of his new children’s book, The Person Controller.

Twins Fred and Ellie really like video games. And they are very good at them. It is just unfortunate they are not much good at anything else – like football, or dealing with the school bullies. Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, unlike any other controller they have ever seen. Could this be the key to all their wildest dreams? Do not miss this event if you like video games, adventure stories, or laughing.  Especially laughing.

Baddiel is a comedian, novelist, screenwriter and television/radio presenter, known for his partnership with fellow comedian Frank Skinner and for his work on The Mary Whitehouse Experience. He was a judge for the Guardian First Book Award in 2000 and the Man Booker Prize in 2002. He has written four novels for adults. His first children’s novel, The Parent Agency, was the biggest selling children’s debut of 2014.
