AUTHOR Jo Allmond sent a powerful message to children when she visited the Kingfisher Cafe - it’s OK to be different.

Jo signed copies of her children’s book Jess the Goth Fairy, gave readings from the book and hosted children’s activities and competitions. 

The book was inspired by her daughter Jess Hiles who was also at the event.

Jess, who has learning and physical disabilities, is a sign language teacher and a Special Olympic gold and silver medallist.  Jess travels the country talking to schools to explain to children that it’s OK to be different.

The book was funded through a successful kickstarter campaign and is illustrated by Bristol-based artist Emily Daly, who was also at the Kingfisher to judge the children’s colouring competition.
