Ooh Look!!

Here's the cover of my new book with Ed Eaves, due out in  March 2012.

Once again, the star of the show is Albie, a small boy who just can't stop having adventures.

In this story, Albie's normal journey to school takes an unexpected turn and he ends up in class with a whole load of aliens!  AWESOME!

Welcome to Alien School is published by Simon & Schuster and is available to pre-order on Amazon.

Last night, I was lucky enough to attend the Stockport Children's Book Awards.  

Local school children were dressed in their finest bling for the ceremony, which took place at the recently renovated Stockport Plaza.  The art-deco styled former cinema was the perfect venue for the glittering Oscar-style ceremony, where the awards were voted for, and presented by local school children.

In the Early Years category, Rhino? What Rhino? was shortlisted alongside Angela McAllister and Alex T. Smith's My Mum Has X-Ray Vision; and Jo Hodgkinson's The Talent Show.  

And the winner was...
My Mum Has X-Ray Vision by Angela McAllister and Alex T. Smith

Well done Angela and Alex!
