Southwold Bookshop event

I spent every summer in a town called Southwold in Suffolk, and it’s had a huge effect on the holidays that children in my books go on! Part of The Chocolate Dog is directly set in Southwold, and so are Max the Missing Puppy and The Rescued Puppy! Come along and hear about my holidays (and the dogs’ holidays!) and decorate a gorgeous puppy picture. 3.30pm on Saturday 25th August.

Snowy World Book Day!

Well, I think this year’s World Book Day counts as the strangest ever! I was supposed to be at a school in London, but the events had to be cancelled due to snow. I saw so many photos of brave authors trekking out to schools round the country!

The photo above is me on my way to a very cold event earlier in the week.

I hope you all had a wonderful day – either celebrating World Book Day in school all dressed up, or at home snuggled up on the sofa with a book!

I’ve been sent some gorgeous photos of World Book Day costumes…

Hannah took this brilliant Rex to be Polly from the Hounds of Penhallow.

Two fabulous Suffragettes – it’s so lovely to see people inspired by The Princess and the Suffragette.

A very sad and lost kitten

Maisie Hitchins with Wonder Woman, which is an excellent combination, I think.

And some amazing Extreme Reading!

Edinburgh International Book Festival

Two exciting events coming up in Edinburgh! On Friday 19th August I’ll be talking about my Animal Stories at 5pm, and introducing The Curious Kitten, which publishes in August. Then on Saturday 20th August at 1.30pm, there’s a Furry Friends event! This is a launch event for my new series about a family of guinea pigs living in Paris, and I’m so excited. There will be all sorts of fabulous, furry things happening, please come along to either or both!
