Great Diamond Robbery

Great Diamond Robbery



…a brand new character that Mum has pulled out from under her hat to sashay and sparkle into the newest Dixie adventure.
And let me tell you, one of our dashing duo is utterly smitten.

Was the description glamourpuss ever more fitting?

Perhaps your young readers can guess her name!



Dixie O'Day and the Great Diamond Robbery

Dixie O’Day and the Great Diamond Robbery

here at last!


Dastardly villains, car chases and stormy sea peril, followed by afternoon tea at the Hotel Splendide: it’s the perfect summer read.

Available in bookshops on July the 31st, or you can pre-order.

There’s also @RHKidsUK‘s marvellous #WheresDixie twitter competition, following Dixie and Percy’s motoring jaunts around town and guessing from the snaps where they have popped up next. A really nice thing to do with the kids after school!

Another treat, now it’s nearly the weekend (perfect for staying in pyjamas all morning and getting out paper and pens), is the drawing competition on the World Book Day site. The prize, a piece of original Dixie artwork, doesn’t come up very often, so why not give it a go?

I shall be reading and drawing, and the children will be making their very own little ice cream cart!
I’ll be bringing the model campervan and the bunnies…



It will be lovely lolly-lickingly bunny fun – join us if you can!

(watching the Tour de France, I did wonder if some of the same features could be adapted to an author tour – could spectators be on hand with orange slices and refreshing drinks as I rush past?)
