Lettice Rabbit at The Café de Paris London!

Book cover of Lettice Ballet Practice.

There is an exciting event coming up for me, Lettice and the very talented people at Kingfisher Press. It’s all happening at the Café de Paris, London on November 13th 2018. The reason is that my book, ‘Lettice Ballet Practice’ has been shortlisted for a Print Solutions Award!

Nina at Kingfisher entered the competition in the Digital Section sponsored by Premier Paper back in August and we are delighted to be voted one of the three nominees in our category. You can view the awards and vote here:

Good luck to everyone at the awards!

Progressive Preschool Awards Winner

Arty Mouse and friends

The Progressive Preschool Awards ceremony was held at The Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London on November 12th 2015.

Simon Couchman, creative director at TopThat Publishing and I attended this super event and I’m thrilled to say Arty Mouse – Creative Series won the prize for the publishing category. It is an honour to win this prize and I hope that many young children will be entertained and inspired by the teeny tiny, but very ‘arty,’ Arty Mouse!

Dulcie’s Dolls

Dulcie's Dolls

Dulcie sent me this photograph of some of her creations. Here we can see three wonderful hand-made cloth dolls.

Dulcie has styled them all with great attention to detail. I love the multi-coloured wools that she has used for the mermaids’ hair.

From left to right we have: Cascada, Lottie and Tallulah – I think they are inspirational for making new picture book characters!

Looking forward to seeing what you make next.
