Channel 5 News interview

I’m still in shock that I was invited to be interviewed on Channel 5 News talking about the importance of reading to children at bedtime! Still waiting for a video clip… meanwhile, here is some photographic evidence!

Events in April 2015

Felt rather proud to be in such prestigious company on the Macmillan Children’s Books stand at the Bologna Book Fair this month.

If you are looking for something to do with children over the Easter holidays, I will be reading my new book at Epsom Library at 11am on Wednesday 8th April (ideally for children up to 7yrs) and we will be making puppets!

‘All Mine!’ book trailer goes live! Two days until publication day – yeah!

Hot off the press!

Very exciting to get these advance copies of All Mine! in the post last week – including a copy in Korean. What a great early Christmas present, I can’t wait until it’s out in bookshops next month! Advances_3 crop

What a lovely surprise – this Korean edition of The Girl Who Loved Wellies arrived in the post this morning!
