WHO AM I?
When you’re in the country, in the grass or in a wood, I may be there, waiting ,to catch my lunch – oh that I could! If your arms or legs are bare or you’re walking in a dress, my task will be so easy, – just a doddle, more or less! For I’m a lovely jumper, andContinue reading “WHO AM I?”
A Summer Evening Story
Hello all! I am still thinking about the sea. I’ve no idea when Riddles from the Sea, my next book, will be coming out, but I hope it won’t be too long. In the meantime, here is a story about something else – as no doubt I will be posting blogs about the sea whenContinue reading “A Summer Evening Story”
A Seaside Song
Hello! Yes, it’s time for my blog! (I had forgotten about it, but fortunately someone reminded me!) The sea and the oceans have been much in my mind. Partly, because my next book is RIDDLES FROM THE SEA, partly because I have been working on an activity called Why the Oceans are Important to goContinue reading “A Seaside Song”

April Update: School visits and new book and La Fontaine!
Hello everyone! How are you? For me, the month has rushed by. I have done a couple of virtual visits to schools.

IContinue reading “April Update: School visits and new book and La Fontaine!”

What going to School was like – a century ago
Sometimes the differences between people and peoples are striking. A French friend emailed me to congratulate me on some good news: then he went on to say that his favourite wild mushrooms were over, but he hoped that with the new moon, they would soon be plentiful again. No English friend of mine has everContinue reading “What going to School was like – a century ago”
