Happy Publication Day, Mary!



So this day has arrived at last. Mostly Mary and All Mary have put on their best rosettes and stepped out into the world.

Egmont UK have done us proud. These books are all I could have wished for.

Meringue, anybody?




Take a bow, Miss Mary Plain -

Mary’s picture writing

IMG_7678 (1)


Mary has many ways to unequivocally get her message across, but none quite so charming as her picture writing. Sometimes it’s easy to decipher, sometimes a little head-scratching is called for.

In my family we have always sent messages to each other in a Mary style.
Why not have a go?

Tomorrow, pack your bags – we’re off to Berne!
