Please get in touch if you have any comments or questions
We love meeting our readers and seeing how much fun they get from reading. They certainly keep us on their toes with their questions and comments. It’s great. Here’s a selection from our school visits.
One parent told us her son had been very excited to meet the ‘book orphans’!
When we were chatting to a class, a pupil asked us how old we were. The teacher told him it wasn’t polite to ask that question. The pupil thought for a moment and then asked Sara how old she was when she started writing children’s books. On hearing the reply, he then asked, ‘How long ago was that?’
We’d had a wonderful session with one class and we congratulated them on their amazing ideas. We said that if we came back in ten years, we’d bet that they’d all be writers. One pupil piped up – ‘But you’ll be dead then!’
We are often asked if we do the illustrations for our books. It's a sensible question. There are two of us after all. Here's the simple answer. Take a look at our attempted illustration for our 'Tom, Dad and Colin' book for OUP Traditional Tales.
Now look at the real illustration for 'Tom, Dad and Colin' by the wonderful Tony Ross. Enough said!
