aliens in the post!

What a fabulous surprise! Look what arrived today in the post from the writer of You Can't Eat a Princess!, Gillian Rogerson! Aliens! Handmade aliens! And chocolate! (That's in case they got held up in the post, so they wouldn't starve. As everyone knows, aliens LOVE chocolate.)

Next weekend is a very big deal because I get to meet Gillian FOR THE FIRST TIME!!! Everyone thinks we worked very closely together, but actually, Gillian's based up in Leeds and I've only ever spoken to her over the phone, and I've just worked with the Scholastic editor and designer on the book. But that doesn't mean I haven't been insanely curious about her! Gillian has the most lovely voice on the phone. She sounds like a very kind person, I know from a couple story manuscripts of hers that she has a wicked sense of humour, and she already feels like a friend. But meeting her will be amazing, I'm sure. And if you're in Leeds, you can be there, too!

Here's our first event together:

Thought Bubble Alien Attack!
From outer space, writer Gillian Rogerson and illustrator Sarah McIntyre will collide for the very first time at the Thought Bubble comics convention in Leeds on Saturday, 20 November. Creators of You Can't Eat a Princess!, a story about alien abduction and chocolate cake, Gillian Rogerson gets set to visit her first comics convention ever, right in her hometown of Leeds, while Sarah McIntyre will be arriving with fresh copies of her new comic book Vern and Lettuce. Kids of all ages (and that means you, too, grown-ups!) will be welcome to orbit with them at their space station, designing aliens and creating space comics. A perfect and very rare chance to get You Can't Eat a Princess! signed by both creators!

Visit the You Can't Eat a Princess! page for free downloadable activity sheets and space party ideas. And take part in Sarah McIntyre's latest project, designing your own page for a 'Vern and Lettuce' online magazine!
