04 Mar Gruff’s here!
I was absolutely delighted when my lovely editor posted me down the only copy of ‘Gruff’s Guide to Fairy Tale Land’ currently in the UK! I know I’m biased, but I think it looks great! And credit is due to my editor, Lucy, my fantastic illustrator, Benji and the art director, Sarah. A book really is a team effort, especially picture books or heavily illustrated junior fiction books like Gruff.
It’s still such a buzz to hold a copy of your book in your hand. And still so bizarre. To think this book was created from a random thought one day, which develops into an idea, which bounces a round a bit, gets tipped upside down and ends up as a story.
I love it.
Gruff’s launch is tomorrow (Saturday 5th March) 10.30am-11.30am at Tiverton Library. I’d love to see you, so come and join the fun if you can.
