NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T!
One thing I forgot to mention about my trip to Goathland School was a surprise, in the sighting of a bright new YELLOW COVER on a copy of MR. POD & MR. PICCALILLI, the picture book I'd worked on with illustrator Nick Sharratt. So a touch of "What? How? Why?" etcetera - though no change on Amazon's cover image - and also a slight feeling of "Where's my copy, then?"
(In fact, it is an even nicer version of the cover so, all in all, it was a pleasant surprise from Walker books. Which is much better than the other kind, isn't it? Off to make a phone-call, all the same . . .)
