I was so excited to receive an email from Tess in Windsor, England. We travelled to her school a couple of weeks ago and although my friend Clementine Rose's adventures are not yet published in the UK, she clearly made an impression. Tess dressed up as Clementine Rose for the World Book Day celebrations and I think she looks gorgeous. She's the first little girl we know of who has dressed up as Clementine Rose in England. I hope she gets to read the books first too! They will be available in the UK in August.
I love her Lavender the pig too.
Lots of love,
