Ashley Harrold is passionate about getting children interested in reading and poetry – he will go to any length to make this happen and that includes acting very strange and very silly. His 'Fizzlebert Stump' series including the 'Boy Who Ran Away from the Circus' (and joined a library) sums this up. Be prepared to laugh out loud and learn lots of new FUN words.
A.F. Harrold is an English poet who writes and performs for both adults and children. He is the author of the Fizzlebert Stump series and has been a full time poet since the early 2000's.
