tea troll

a sneaky look at the illustrations i am doing at the moment for my new book for nosy crow.
this is a reformed troll drinking tea in a very sophisticated manner.

i can't say anything else as it is meant to be a big hushy
the book will be published sometime in the future (maybe next autumn) when we will all be wearing tinfoil space suits (ok, it will just be me wearing a tinfoil suit then).

bookbabblers interview

so, this is an prime example how i live my life doing doggy paddle and trying to keep my head above water!
this interview went live at the start of march.... it is now the end of march i have only just gotten around to blogging about it!

ah well, better later than never as they say.

so, have a little read of it on the lovely bookbabblers website if you are interested/nosey/need a distraction.

my adopted bear!

what a lovely parcel i did get in the post.
i opened up the little box and look what i found inside... why only a lovely little bear.
so it seems i have adopted a real live actual proper bear.
i am so excited!
i got some bear postcards and bear info and everything also.
but who was it from, surely there was a mistake? i didn't order a bear did i?
it was only from my fab publisher nosy crow to say congratulations on the publication of my new book
"goldilocks and just the one bear".

aw.......... you guys are great!
ps the little bear is called Parker
