ONE MONTH LATER . . .
Here we are, a exact month since my last post. Hope you all had a delicious Easter!

The end of the Spring term was so extremely busy I didn't get time to catch up with this blog. So I hope that everyone at RIPON CATHEDRAL SCHOOL, BROOMFIELD SCHOOL in Northallerton, MIDDLETON SCHOOL in Leeds and OTLEY STREET NURSERY in Skipton had a wonderful Easter break. It was lovely meeting you all. Thank you!

Last weekend I was down at BRADFIELD COLLEGE, near Reading, giving two seminar sessions at the FEDERATION OF CHILDREN'S BOOK GROUP'S CONFERENCE but I was also able to hear several amazing speakers including JUDITH KERR.

This week I've been working away at a short story for a Stripes Christmas anthology - odd to be staring at daffodils and writing about snow - while next week I'll be calling in to see my Year 3 friends at MIDDLETON SCHOOL again. These visits are part of a WRITTEN & SPOKEN WORDS PROJECT organised by ARTFORMS, Leeds, which I'm finding very interesting.

However, I also have to find time to start checking through the UNCORRECTED PROOF of my big novel for older children. It's A BOY CALLED MOUSE, and the bound proof arrived just in time for me to read from it at the Conference. That, after my long wait, was a most wonderful moment. Now I've just got to check the rest of the 450 pages!

A BOY CALLED MOUSE: Bigging Up The New Blog
Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I've started another blog. In it I'll be talking about all manner of things leading up to the publication of my latest book - A BOY CALLED MOUSE. It's a "Victorian" novel for 9-13 year old readers and will be published by Bloomsbury in October 2010.

You can find out more about it by trying out the following link:

The Year of Mouse - Penny Dolan

However, I'll still be keeping this blog about my school visits going. Which reminds me - I have some very urgent catching-ups to do!
