I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog lately due to lots of touring and writing a new series - Toffle Towers!
Toffle Towers: Fully Booked is the lead book in the series and it comes out on August 5. I’ve been having a blast working with James Foley on this one. James is an incredibly talented illustrator, writer and presenter, and I can’t wait to do some promotion with him. You can check out more about James here.
The coolest thing is, I’ll be launching the book alongside James soon!
When: 4pm Saturday 17th August
Where: The Children’s Bookshop, Beecroft
RSVP: email@example.com (bookings essential)
The books was inspired when I was watching Fawlty Towers (a classic British comedy), and wondered what it would be like if a kid was in charge of a hotel. The ideas started pouring out and I had to write them down. There are lots of quirky characters in Toffle Towers, and our hero daydreamer, Chegwin, has to think of creative ways to get the hotel back into business.
The story is broken up with funny conversations, email chains, lists and of course, hilarious illustrations by James.
I can’t wait for you to meet Chegwin soon!
