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?
