Come and hear the story of Betty the Fairy on 6th June 2015 at Waterstones, Canterbury Rose Lane, Canterbury 10.am- 12pm. Make paper flowers, decorate fairy wings and eat special cup cakes! All welcome!
I am so excited about this coming weekend – as my very first picture book, with GORGEOUS illustrations by the wonderful Rosalind Beardshaw, will be published by Nosy Crow Publishers this week and we will launch it on Saturday. I absolutely love the fact that I imagined a little fairy struggling to put her vest on – and Rosalind brought her to life in the most lovable way imaginable. You can see the truth of these words by ‘reading inside’ – just go to this blog post on the Nosy Crow website:
I love being paired with Rosalind – I feel I can show off about ‘The Fairiest Fairy’ until the cows come home – and even when they are safely tucked up in their cow sheds – and then when they set off again the next day – because I defy anyone not to think that, thanks to Rosalind, Betty is the sweetest fairy ever! I am so proud that Nosy Crow loved my story and enabled it to be brought to life in picture book form – and I hope that the children and adults who read it will love Betty – and themselves – more after reading it!
