The Blubber Monster reigns supreme!

Yesterday, I completed my final school visit of 2018. I'm now taking a break until 2019!

What better way to finish than by signing books under this brilliant display, created by the reading champions at The Park School in Bristol...

Have a great summer everyone, and see you in 2019!

Amazing artwork

At Laleham Primary School today, I was given two of the best pieces of 'fan art' I've ever received, by a couple of year 5s.

Click on the images to see them full screen.

Firstly, this drawing, inspired by the front covers of my books Doorway To Danger and The Ghost Lord Returns. I LOVE the colouring and shading, the expression on the main character, Becky's, face and the creepy ghost lurking in the background.

Secondly, this drawing, which creatively brings together ideas from my school visit and things they found out on YouTube. I love Becky's mum screaming 'What on EARTH?!' in the left hand corner, and Spooky Steve (winner of the worst dancer at Boo Hoo TV) on the right. I also love the expressions on Becky, Finn and Jimmy's faces as they are being attacked by a spectre.

Thank you so much to the two year 5s for giving me these. They've really made my week!

During my school visits, I ask 2 children to come up and play a game with me called "Three-headed Storyteller". The audience chooses a character and a problem that will happen to them. We then tell that story one word at a time. Like this:
