Marvellous March!

What a month March has been! The Welsh Books Council chose ‘St David’s Day is Cancelled’ as their book of the month which was absolutely fantastic. Then St David’s Day  kicked things off (thank goodness it wasn’t cancelled!) with World Book Day hot on its heels – there’ve been  interviews for S4C  & Showboat TV, promotions & lots of fun school visits. And I was delighted when my new book was spotted in Waterstones, Cardiff – I’m so happy to be surrounded by Allan Ahlberg, Enid Blyton, Roddy Doyle, Horatio Clare and Jill Tomlinson on this table!!

St. David’s Day is Cancelled!

I’m so excited about my next book St. David’s Day is Cancelled! The wonderful illustrations by the brilliantly talented Huw Aaron are all in place and the book is almost ready to be printed. It’ll be published in time for St. David’s Day – which hopefully won’t be cancelled! – and I’ll be on a book signing tour(!) during February (more details on this page soon). I’m looking forward to it already.

I can’t reveal the cover just yet, but here’s a sneaky peek at the title page and Huw’s illustration of Nia.

And here’s a bit about the book:

When their headteacher, Mrs Right – who’s most definitely wrong about some things – decides to cancel St. David’s Day, the Seren Wen newspaper team know that with just a week to go they have to act fast. They need to get the whole school to put on the best concert ever. But can they do it in time? And will anyone want to help them?

Can they save St. David’s Day?
