My new picture book, GRUMPYCORN, has been well and truly LAUNCHED in the most amazing place imaginable, a storybook castle in Ireland, at the Towers & Tales Lismore Story Festival.

Lismore Castle really is like being in a fairytale, no unicorn could resist it, not even the grumpiest unicorn.



And we made books! In the story, Unicorn is trying to write 'the most fabulous story in the world', but he can't figure out where to start. The children and families who came along to the launch were much less inhibited and we came up with some great cover ideas, inspired by Grumpycorn.



And I had some of my all-time favourite illustrators around me! Here's the amazing David Roberts (whose books include Suffragettes, Dirty Bertie, Ada Twist Scientist) at the writing desk in his room. (To be honest, we'd need to stay another week to get much writing done; we were too busy exploring.)
