A Lovely Day; a new book and new friends

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!  I can't believe that it's 2013, which means it will be three years next month since my first adventure was published in Australia.  It has been a very busy time that's for sure and my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey and I are looking forward to another fantastic year.

I am excited to see that Clementine Rose and the Pet Day Disaster was officially published today.  She's the most adorable little girl and I wish I had a pet teacup pig too.  If you have younger sisters who are not quite ready for my adventures I can highly recommend Clementine Rose's tales. 

The cover is adorable.
Today I met a lovely new friend called Claire and her big brother Matthew.  Claire dressed up as me for her Book Week Celebrations and Matthew made a very good Wally from Where's Wally.  I loved that Claire was so interesting in writing and asked Jacqueline Harvey lots of great questions about how you create a book.
