Sam the Tram at Newport Railway Workshops Open Days, with Steamrail.
What a great weekend. Armed with two new books, 'Sam the Tram’s Dance Club' and 'Melbourne with Sam the Tram', we met old friends and made new friends. Tram drivers who had driven 'Sam the Tram' on Melbourne roads and students who had loved our original books at school joined with a new generation of kids, who were glued to the screen, watching the draft animation of 'Sam the Tram’s Dance Club' up to 4 times in a sitting. Parents and adults listened with great pleasure to the voice of the late and greatly missed Leo McKern (Rumpole of the Bailey), as he read one of our originals, The Great Tram Race.
Kids loved dancing the Tramba, and ‘being' Sam and the other friends. Our performance/workshops should be a good offering.
The books were well received, and sales were amazing. With so many years of experience at similar occasions behind us, we were stunned. And there were plenty of requests for the first book. We shall have to update it to our new digital look !
Hundreds of kids and adults watched the draft animation, and many then bought the newly released books.
