Checkout these mechanimals I was sent today by Mr Mathews at Crescent Primary School – designed by the Year five and six classes, aren’t they super? Who wouldn’t want a mechanical Toucan, or a Chinese Dragon, or a flamingo with wooden legs?
Here are some brilliant cogheart drawings sent to me by Summerville Primary – who i visited last year. Lots of great Malkin designs! These are some of my absolute favourites!
Here’s some stunning displays and artwork and writing from Ingram Primary – who also just finished reading Cogheart…
Check out these amazing mechanimals designed by the children of Loxwood School! Thanks Lindsay Webber for sending them to me….
I am delighted to announce that Cogheart is on the shortlist for the 9-12 favourite books selection for World Book Day 2018, along with some fab recent releases and all time classics!
They’ve split the list into 4 different categories, & to kick off they’re asking schools, bookshops, libraries & other booky people to reveal THEIR favourite stories.
Here’s the link to go vote, *hem Hem* you know what to do!
On Tuesday night I attended the Books Are My Bag Readers Awards 2017, where Moonlocket was nominated in the Children’s Book Category, along with five other authors. Christian O’Connell for Radio Boy, Maz Evans, for Who Let the Gods Out, Robin Stevens for The Guggenheim Mystery, Katherine Rundell for The Explorers and Emma Carroll for Letters From the Lighthouse. I got to hang out with some of the other authors for the evening, and I couldn’t have been more proud to be up there with this line up that includes many of my favourite children’s authors. Especially to be there for Moonlocket, which is the second book in the series, as those are the books that often get overlooked. So its great that it’s found a readership who love it just as much as the first one! The award in the children’s category went to Emma Carroll for Letters From the Lighthouse. Congratulations Emma! I love Emma’s books and have yet to read this one but really look forward to it.
