I love getting letters from readers, particularly if they are accompanied by drawings.
A couple of years ago, Brody sent me a drawing of a dragon; recently he sent me another.
And here are some letters from St Joseph’s School in Highgate, which Garry and I visited together.
One of the nicest things about writing books is my post. Yes, of course, like anyone else, I get bank statements and notes from estate agents offering to sell my house and emails promising that I have won the State Lottery of a country that I’ve never visited, but I also get a lot of letters and emails from children who have read my books. My favourites are usually the ones that include a picture. I should post them here more often.
Here is a dragon that was sent to me by Brody, inspired by The Dragonsitter, which he has been reading.
Thank you, Brody, for sending me this brilliant dragon.
