Stay tuned! In the meantime, if you're looking for Christmas prezzies, I have two new books out this year, Kevin and the Biscuit Bandit (with Philip) - roughly for ages 7 and up - and Don't Call Me Grumpycorn, a picture book for all ages. Both books have lots of book-related free activities on my website (click the links) to keep readers busy for Boxing Day and beyond, when they've finished the books. And if you'd like to get signed bookplates, Page 45 have exclusive bookplates here, Philip Reeve is offering additional Kevin bookplates here, and I'm offering additional Grumpycorn bookplates here.
Plus, I have cards, prints and gift tags in my online shop: besides Christmas cards, packs of cards make great gifts because they're flat, light, and ship easily.
