I was delighted to meet local West Kilbride author, Alan Dapré - Author & Artist creator of Porridge the Tartan Cat, the cat who toppled into a tin of tartan paint, at Kirktonhall Glen yesterday afternoon at the Scarecrow Gala.
Alan has successfully written for television, radio and publishers for over 20 years. He worked as a creative and originator for Ragdoll Productions for eight years, and his episodes of Brum, Boohbah and Blips are broadcast worldwide. He is the author of over 60 children's books and a former Deputy Head Teacher.
Alan has written four 'Porridge' books to date, the latest of which Porridge the Tartan Cat and the Loch Ness Mess was published on 20 July.
