I'm in the middle of three hectic weeks of World Book Day visits to infant schools and nurseries. I love school visits - they keep me in touch with the age groups I write for and fire me with enthusiasm. And young children have such wonderful ideas…
Teddies are sliding down rainbows to swim with sharks,
floating around on balloons
and a fairy teddy is living in the stars.
Creatures of all shapes and sizes are hatching out of eggs
and sometimes they make lovely pets
Gilbert (my great white shark) is starring in all sorts of new stories
Castles are being discovered - this one's made of wood and visted by cloud dragons
and this one's made of candy and populated with purple princess unicorns.
I'm having so much fun and I'm so impressed by the children's imaginations. Thanks to all the schools who have invited me to visit – and congratulations to all the young writers and illustrators out there!
