our big book launch! plus a madcap pirate draw-off...

Last night my new piratey picture book with Gillian Rogerson, You Can't Scare a Princess! officially set sail from The Princess of Shoreditch in London's east end. ARRRRR!

Not only was it our book launch party, but it was also International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

And here's the fabulous Scholastic Princess and Pirate Team that makes all things happen! From the left, that's publicists Catherine Alport, Alexandra Sedgwick, me, finance wizard Alyx Price, Gillian, editor Fiz Osborne, our editor Ellie Parkin and designer Zoe Waring. Thanks for all your hard work everyone! They really pulled out all the stops for this party, Gillian and I were totally gobsmacked.
