World Book Day

Last week, I talked about my new book to an audience of schoolchildren – the first time that I had spoken about Hope Jones Saves the World.

I visited two schools in Bolton with the brilliant Rebecca Patterson, author of one of my favourite picture books (My Big Shouting Day). We share a publisher – Andersen Press – who had arranged for us to do this event together, celebrating World Book Day.

Andersen had released my new book early in Lancashire; it was great to see Hope Jones Saves the World in the hands of readers. The rest of the country will be able to read it in May.
