Hi, this is the bit where I keep you up to date with all my latest news. Like how much tea I’ve drunk today, and how many curly wurlys I’ve scoffed.
(So far today: Tea – 4 cups. Curly Wurlys – none. Somone’s eaten them all! *sad face*)
It’s also the place where you might find some ideas for books to read. As well as writing books I love reading them – by myself, with school book groups and with my own kids. These are my kids and the cat, as drawn by Alice. ↓
And here are some of the books we’re enjoying at the moment.
FORTUNATELY, THE MILK – Neil Gaiman - Mum’s away on a business trip and Dad’s left in charge. Unfortunately he forgets to get the milk. This is the funny story of why it takes him so long to get back from the shop with the milk. Lots of laughs. Great pictures. Archie, my son says: This is a great book because the dad time-travels. Great for 6+
WONDER by R.J. Palacio – an epic book about a ten year old boy who looks very different – he was born with a facial abnormality – starting school for the first time. Sounds heavy, but it’s not. Great writing, lightly done. Incredibly powerful and uplifting. I love it! So do the kids I’m reading it with. Good for readers age 10+
