Michael De Souza read from his Rastamouse books at an event at Kilburn Quarter, in Cambridge Road, on October 25.

His books feature a crime fighting mouse and his reggae band ‘Da Easy Crew’ which were made into a BBC show.

An African drumming teacher was also on hand to bash out a few musical numbers and offer drumming lessons to the children.

Mr De Souza said: “There was a good range of ages between those who participated. The children were very attentive and said how much they enjoyed the sessions. They felt encouraged to write themselves.”
