FREE The Princess and the Presents Colouring In

If you have read The Princess and the Presents, you'll be astounded by the huge array of wrapping paper designs inside.  

So we thought you might like to have a go at designing your own.  We've given you a head-start with this free colouring sheet, but do have a go at making  your own designs up too - we'd love to see them!

I am very VERY excited to be appearing at Hoo Kids' Book Festival on 11 May alongside Alex T. Smith.  We're going to be telling Foxy Tales and Alex will be drawing pictures of Foxy and Alphonso.  We'll be performing at 2.45 in The Marvellous Marquee so be sure to get your tickets soon!

In celebration of this exciting event, some very special friends of mine have written a lovely blog post - all about ME!  If you'd like to read it, please follow the link below.
