Excited kids spilled from buses and headed off to their author or illustrator sessions - three 1 hour sessions in a day.
Only one more Kids' Day on Tuesday and a Mini Kids Lit Festival in Esk (about an hour away on Wednesday) and the Festival is over for another two years.
Here are some images of Monday's Kids' Day at the Ipswich Festival of Children's Literature.
