It’s always lovely to see the first actual copies of a new book because it is invariably a long time since it was first written so it feels very new, and shiny!
This very morning the first copies of my latest book, a Collins Big Cat Phonics book arrived.
This is what it looks like!
It is the story of a little beetle who likes to sing (but is not very good at it!) When the other little beetles send her away she is almost eaten by Harry the mouse. But Poppy does something very brave and rescues him from sneaky Jake the snake. So they become friends instead and share their love of singing- even though neither of them can sing very well!
