Thatch the Moon - Part 3!

Here's the third part of our Reeve & McIntyre story, Thatch the Moon, read by Amy Sutton! (You can find the first two episodes in previous entries or on my YouTube channel.)

As before, we'd LOVE to see your #ThatchTheMoon drawings inspired by the story, if you drew along while you were listening, or afterward! Perhaps one or more characters, a setting, a scene in the story, or imagine your house - or you! - thatched elaborately! Here are a few lovely responses we've received already on Twitter. Thank you, Alec, Sandra and Tilly!

Don't Call Me Grumpycorn launch party!

Yesterday we had a virtal launch party up in orbit, on the Unicorn Space Station, for my picture book Don't Call Me Grumpycorn! Here are three of us from my urban family unit, looking after the station control room.

The party's over, but the FABULOUS PLANET COMPETITION runs all week! The winner gets a picture of either them or someone in their family with Unicorn in space! Draw the perfect planet for Unicorn, a planet that's custom-made for you (with all your favourite things), or a dream planet for any of the characters in the story - Mermaid, Narwhal, Jellyfish, even little Goldfish! (This video is the only time Goldfish has ever had a speaking role):

Here are a few glimpses of yesterday's launch party up on the Unicorn Space Station. There was a Narwhal Bar!

Narwhal makes a great bartender, he is really very skilled at mixing drinks. Here was the menu people could choose from:

Everyone who ordered at the bar got a drink and a piece of the special galactic gateau.
