15th March 2014
Time: 14:30 - 15:30

Mo has written a series of three children's books:
My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish
My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish: The Seaquel
My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish: Fins of Fury

Her first book was on the New York Times Review Children's bestsellers list in December 2013 and is described as Finding Nemo meets Shaun of the Dead - two laugh-out-loud stories about an evil big brother, a best friend to the rescue and one big fat zombie goldfish!

Tom's big brother is an Evil Scientist who wants to experiment on Tom’s new goldfish, Frankie. Can Tom save his fish from being dunked in radioactive gunge? Er, no. In an act of desperation Tom zaps Frankie with a battery, bringing him back to life! But there’s something weird about the new Frankie - he's now a zombie goldfish with hypnotic powers, and he wants revenge... Tom has a difficult choice to make - save his evil brother, or save his fishy friend?

Come and join debut author Mo O'Hara and find out what you need to be an evil scientist, what to do if you pet gets zombified and how Mo and her brother once brought back their goldfish from the brink of death. My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish is two laugh-out-loud stories about an evil big brother, a best friend to the rescue and one big fat zombie goldfish! But, can Tom save his zombie goldfish from the fatal flush?"
