The Rumplings on the news!

We have great news to share! RTP, the Portuguese equivalent to the BBC, will be interviewing Francisco B.G.M, the author and creator of the Rumplings, for a segment about Portuguese people living abroad. The topic of the interview will be Francisco’s first book, Age of Dawn, a chapter book of friendship and adventure, about foodie creatures called Rumplings.

On the 18th of June 2017, the RTP crew will come out to East London, to interview Francisco at his home. The fun part - and what this post is really about - is the reading at Burley Fisher Books, where you are all invited for an afternoon of exciting storytelling and family fun (the book is for 7 to 11 year olds, so bring your young-ones)!

Tickets are free and you can book your spot here.

The reading will take place at 3pm on the 18th of June at Burley Fisher Books (400 Kingsland Road, E84AA), and Francisco will read two chapters of the book, followed by signing copies and giving away 20 free copies.

If you have a young-one that would enjoy a day of storytelling please come and join us for a fun afternoon of adventure! Sign-up to the event on the Eventbrite page here, and please do share this with all your friends.


Francisco B.G.M. lives in East London, and self-published Age of Dawn, the first story about creatures of his making called Rumplings. In a beautifully illustrated chapter book, Francisco creates a world where all creatures are foodies and everything in their world exists to appreciate and better understand food. On the day of the event there will also be copies of Age of Dawn on sale in the bookstore.
