I don’t think I have ever been involved with a more glorious, original project.
The biggest names in the children’s publishing world have been transforming themselves into their favourite characters from the books they most loved as children. They have been styled and dressed in sumptuous costumes, and photographed by star photographer Cambridge Jones, for an exhibition called 26 Characters at The Story Museum in Oxford, opening on April 5th. Neil Gaiman as Badger is such an inspired casting!
There will be lots to do and see, with a season of related activities and events.
Mum and I have been a pair, a joint portrait of two characters from a book we both love. It’s all top secret so I can’t tell you who we are, but I can give you a visual clue.
This was my prop…
Dixie and Percy are very proud to welcome the newest youngest most wonderful star of Team Dixie!
All dressed up for World Book Day.
Doesn’t she look fantastic?
This made Mum and I VERY HAPPY!
Sunday is my writing day.
Golly – writing is SO TRICKY…
but as you can see, after a day’s intense work I am really steaming ahead on my new story.
have made beautiful books for Mum
At the Imagine Festival yesterday Mum was presented with two wonderful-looking concertina books by George and Anna. It was all rather rushed so we didn’t get a proper look at them until we got home… but then OH WOW.
We were absolutely bowled over!
grab a custard cream and trot along to see us!
A rare chance to see Mum and I together, presenting Dixie O’Day in the Fast Lane at Imagine Children’s Festival on London’s South bank on Thursday February 20th at 11am…
