Griffin Books is excited to welcome P.G. Bell to Penarth to share the wonders of his new children's book, The Train to Impossible Places.

Join us for an afternoon of activities on board the Impossible Postal Express! Surprises await at every station, all themed around our wonderful featured book. This is a perfect session to cure the half-term boredom! Suitable for ages 6 - 12.

Tickets are £5 per child (adults go free). All children must be accompanied by an adult. The ticket price includes refreshments and the chance to buy the book (see below) at a special discounted price on the day, and get it signed by the author himself!


A train that travels through impossible places. A boy trapped in a snow globe. And a girl who's about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.

The Impossible Postal Express is no ordinary train. It's a troll-operated delivery service that runs everywhere from ocean-bottom shipwrecks, to Trollville, to space.

But when this impossible train comes roaring through Suzy's living room, her world turns upside down. After sneaking on board, Suzy suddenly finds herself Deputy Post Master aboard the train, and faced with her first delivery – to the evil Lady Crepuscula.

Then, the package itself begs Suzy not to deliver him. A talking snow globe, Frederick has information Crepuscula could use to take over the entire Union of Impossible Places. But when protecting Frederick means putting her friends in danger, Suzy has to make a difficult choice – with the fate of the entire Union at stake...
