Book Tour for a couple of weeks
and visited LOADS of fantastic libraries - schools and festivals.
The children (as ever) did some wonderful drawings and doodles.
How old are you?
(How old do you think?... answers varied from 83 to 33)
Why did you start writing?
(So I could illustrate my own stories.)
Where do you get your ideas from?
(EVERYWHERE... remembering my childhood, funny stories from friends and family too.)
Here's photos from the tour below.
