I must apologise that I have been very quiet for the past month as my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey and I have been travelling across the United States making friends with lots of girls and boys all over the place. So far we've visited California, Illinois, Michigan, South Carolina, New Jersey and New York. Jacqueline has visited 23 schools, given 47 talks to over 4000 students and signed over a thousand books. You can read her blog about the tour here http://jacquelineharvey.blogspot.com
It has been amazing to learn so much about school in another country and I have loved every minute of it. I'll be back again soon, blogging about what's happening and when my next adventure will be out but for now, pop over and read Jacqueline's blog - there's a lot to see.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
