We’ve just completed our last school visit for a while and hung up the dancing shoes! All up our school travels took us to seven cities, three writers festivals and saw us do 82 individual sessions. It sounds like a lot, and perhaps for writers like us accustomed to sitting in quiet rooms thinking stuff up, it is, but still, we love it. We’ve talked books and ideas with thousands of brilliant children. We’ve been bowled over by the most incredible librarians and teachers who do a tremendous job of making literacy exciting and accessible. We also came out of it with millions of new ideas and can’t wait to start writing them down. If you’d like us to come to your school, drop us a line.
German edition cover!
How delightful is this! The German cover of Room on Our Rock is in! Published by Annett Betz, we love how the publisher has used a silver letter K to change the title from meaning ‘No Place For Us’ to ‘A Place For Us’. It’s very clever and very special. We’re looking forward to seeing the US, Hungarian and Japanese version come in soon too.
