Having won the Oscar's Book Prize last year, I had the honour to be at the Hay Festival last Saturday for some storytelling. I absolutely loved it. What a fantastic audience!
I hope to be back soon.

I've just got a copy of my latest book 'The Sheep Who Hatched an Egg', by Macmillan Children's Books. It will be out on March 23rd.
It's a book about messy hair and the nice surprises that life brings you when you least expect it.
My 6 month old daughter finds it very tasty.
