Monks Risborough March 3rd


The picture at the top of this blog is of an albino alligator I came across in Florida. I love looking out for unusual things. The lady who owns it told me there are only 43 albino alligators in the world. How she knows that I don’t know! And here  is march 26THa picture of me driving a steam train in Poland a few years ago.  Jenson – this is Septmeber 2010 039what the train looked like from the outside…

I’m coming to see you on Tuesday 3rd March and we’ll be making up characters and then a story about what happens in a place called Wiston Hill. I like visiting schools and I’ve been told you are very creative. So I’m really looking forward to working with you.

I’ll visit each class and talk to you about what it’s like being a writer and about my new book called The Milkshake Detectives. TMD coverThen I’ll answer any questions you have. If you look at different pages on my website you can find out things about me to help you think of good ones.

Us Minus Mum -websiteI’ll bring some of my books to sell. Us Minus Mum, which was  published last year, is £5. I wrote it for children in years 4, 5 and 6. It’s a very funny book but is also sad. I’ll bring some of my other books that are out of print as well. Lots of these are for younger children and cost £1, £3 and £5.


I loved working with you all today. You were great at creating ideas together, listened really well to each others’ ideas then made up some wonderful stories.  I hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did.
