A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

Beast Quest


My World Book Day school today was King Alfred School, right here in North London. Meet Cathy Brown, librarian and all around book beast, who arranged a terrific day for me. Yes, she is THAT hairy. The children appear very well adjusted considering they have a beast for a librarian. I'm sure she will want me to thank Chris Judge, whose Beast books inspired the WBD costume. More photos of my World Book Week school visits coming soon!
