hello, team scholastic uk!

Big relief, I've just finished the artwork for my next as-yet-unannounced picture book for Scholastic UK, the publishers who last spring published Grumpycorn:



One of my favourite things about going into the office is seeing where everyone works, and meeting some of the people who make the books happen! Scholastic is shaped like a big round loop, so it's possible to run the full circle and see everyone (which I do whenever I get a chance). Here, come along with me for a peek inside. Here's my new editor Fiz Osbourne, who's been working with me on the latest book. She regularly does #AskAChildrensBookEditor question-and-answer sessions on Twitter. I first met her at the Bath Children's Lit Fest way back in 2010, which was her first-ever time accompanying an author on an event trip. It was reassuring because we were both newbies!



Here's fab publicist Louisa Danquah, who set up the Waterstones Covent Garden book party and has been helping me stay organised with events.
