thank you callum, you made my day when i recieved your lovely letter yesterday.
it made me grin, especially your brilliant picture of a sort of bear/troll with pointy teeth.
in answer to your questions...
i wrote the book as the idea pinged into my head and i couldn't sleep untill i had written it.
i was interested in the idea of goldilocks and the little bear meeting each other again when they were all groan up.
and it took me a day or two to actually write, about 3 months to illustrate, and from the initial idea to the book being published was a ridiculously whopping 3ish years!
i am so glad you liked my book callum
