Reading just got even more rock ‘n’ roll! I’m just home from the Oxford Literary Festival where I had the most amazing time performing my Ten Fat Sausages and Odd Socks event, c/o Andersen Press. The audience were wonderful! They totally deserved the extra treat: […]
Ten Fat Sausages, sizzling in a pan,
One went POP and the other went…
HANG ON A MINUTE! I do not like this.
The fridge went hum but the pan goes hiss.
Well, I won’t go BANG and I won’t go POP!
And Sausage Number Two went hop, hop, hop…
I am utterly delighted with my latest book, illustrated hilariously by Tor Freeman and published by Andersen Press.
I’ve loved Tor’s work for a loooong time, so I was beyond chuffed to be able to create a book with her. I hope it’s not our last! You can buy the book pretty much anywhere that sells books – try your local independent or the next best thing, Hive.
It’s an unpredictable, energetic and anarchic romp through the kitchen and – as proven with an audience of 300 children the other day – kids just can’t help joining in.
I’m really looking forward to touring schools and book festivals in the coming weeks dressed as a giant sausage… Honestly.
