Mass Book Launch

It's a cake. Really. Honestly! And it's unique because it took the front covers or characters from 26 different children's books and recreated them in edible form.

It was made to celebrate the mass launch of books written by 26 authors and/or illustrators, all of whom belong to British SCBWI. The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is the best support network for published and unpublished writers and illustrators for children. They chose the rocket from the front cover of I Could Be, You Could Be - it's there, in the left-hand corner. And very tasty it was, too!

A great summer read!

I Could Be, You Could Be has been chosen as one of the titles in the Summer Reading Challenge. The challenge is held in libraries across the UK and aims to get kids into books and libraries - two things close to my heart. Find out more here:

Launch of I Could Be, You Could Be

I Could Be, You Could Be has finally hit the shelves! Had a fantastic launch at the equally fantastic Under The Greenwood Tree bookshop in Clapham, south London. Story-telling, acting, mask-making and word searches while surrounded by hundreds of lovely books. What more could a boy or girl want?!

The children are all ears at storytime... and so is the giraffe.

Thanks to all the children (and their grown-ups) who helped to make the event such a memorable one, especially those who travelled such a long way to be with us.
