Last week I signed copies of Ella Bella Ballerina and The Nutcracker at two wonderful independent bookshops in London: Wimbledon Books and Music, and Muswell Hill Children's Bookshop. It was lovely to revist two favourite shops... especially when I had such a warm welcome from both staff and customers!
At Wimbledon I was presented with these two fantastic Nutcracker and ella Bella pictures, by Willow and Mabel-Rose. Aren't they beautiful? I'll treasure them and they make my studio look very Christmassy.
And Orchard's rep, Lucy, who drove me the length and breadth of London also gave me a gift - A Nutcracker music box, which plays the March from the ballet - gorgeous and like the pictures, I'll treasure it and bring it out every Christmas, I promise!!!
ALL of this puts me perfectly in the mood for the next children's concert - The Nutcracker with the Docklands Sinfonia. It's a week today! And tickets are selling fast! By next friday I'll be feeling so Christmassy I wouldn't be suprised if I turn into a sugar mouse...
