snowy london

First, a note from the author and illustrator of Princess Sweetie and Back to Fairyland, whose books sold out at the Alternative Press Fair and made her a whopping £4.30!


Today we had our own fairyland. Stuart walked to his work but schools were closed and all the neighbours were out in force!



My neighbour friend and an Albanian girl got pretty vicious with the snowballs...

Lots of camera action happening in the park.



I didn't know these people, but they had us pose with them in lots of their photos, so we took a few of them.

I don't know, but the buses aren't running and I think most of the train stations are closed. I think everyone's walking if they absolutely have to go somewhere!

Grumble grumble. I never thought I'd regret the Victoria line being fairly solid and dependable (unlike the thrice curse-ed Northen Line {turn head, spit})

/me gets back to work.

Oh no, the snow did not work in your favour, then! We could try heaping up a big pile in front of your office door to make it look extra bad so they let everyone go. But that might just keep you at work, which would not really serve the purpose.

Are those dollar signs? For shame, tell her to draw little pound signs (I am actually really impressed by the dollar signs though).

Wow! The snow looks lovely and fluffy. Here (Malta) it's fairly warm.

Yeah, the dollar signs made me laugh, too. She watches a lot of the Simpsons, maybe she got it off that.

Ooh, Malta sounds very nice in the winter...

Well, at least she's honest that she's in it for the money :P

Honest/shameless... ;-D

She took one of her books to school and read it in front of the class, which made me well proud, he heh.

Just like the back of her books says... FIND OUT. That cracks me up.

I *love* "Find out". Do you think your neighbour would mind if I started using it?

I am the proud owner of a palm-sized, hand written & illustrated First Edition of Back To Fairyland.

In the beginning, the fairy finds herself lost in England and sees red buses exclaiming, 'where is this place?'. In a lovely detail, the fairy is pictured wearing the same clothes everyday because she did not bring any spare clothes. I shall not reveal the secret of her return but, she is happily re-united with her family in Fairyland.

It's a well-crafted story told in only 6 pages(picture book authors take note) and I plan to present it at my future school visits as a fine example of how to produce your own book.

I wonder what the fairy would make of Snowy England!
