Fresh out of the box today : we're enjoying so much "I Don't Know What To Call My Cat", especially the rogue's gallery on the covers 🐱💖📚
A must have for every beginner, these charts introduce lil ones to world of words with the help of pictures. DM to order.
If I had to write a list of 'people I've always wanted to interview' - children's book author Jacqueline Wilson (or Dame Jacqueline, as she's correctly titled) would be near the top. So I was PRETTY EXCITED when this actually happened. #IRL
. To me. .
The last time we had contact, I was about eight years old, and went to the Muswell Hill kids' bookshop where she was doing a signing for The Suitcase Kid. She signed my book (and my autograph book) and drew a little rabbit illustration for me. .
She's an absolute genius (writing about divorce, adoption, mental health) for children. I'm a BIG fan. (Can you tell?). So I asked her all about mornings, calling herself a writer for the first time and the A-Level she completed aged 40 (her parents encouraged her to leave school at 16). Link to our chat in bio.

Flashback Friday. My first cover from waaaay back
In my upcoming children's book, I show that we are all beautiful and we all deserve love and to be treated with kindness and respect. Almost all of the dogs in the book are real dogs, including the sweetheart @delilahthefrenchie
❤❤❤ Here is an amazing painting of her by the book's illustrator, @hannahpetlover
Say hi to the Barber if you see him around Splendour!
