New picture book deal!

New picture book deal!

Well, I’m delighted to say that my new picture book ‘THE STRANGEST ZOO’ will be published by Random House in 2013!

First of all, I must give a big thank you to my wonderful agent, Julia Churchill, for all her help in arranging the deal.

I’m really looking forward to working with Random House and I wonder who the illustrator will be? When you write picture books, you often have images in your head about what a character, or a spread or a scenario looks like. This is certainly the case for me, but I can’t draw to save my life! At some point soon another person (who I probably don’t even know yet!) will be bringing my book to life with pictures and I can’t wait to see what he or she does with it!

Fortunately, there’s enough to  keep me busy. The next Gruff’s guide book is out 2012, I’m writing a couple of other picture books, working on a novel, doing school visits, running writing courses…. I’m sure 2012 will be here before I know it!
