Exciting New!  Secrets of the Tombs is included in this Top Ten list of Thrilling Locations in Children's Books, compiled by author, Sara Grant on The Guardian Children's Books website. 

I'm thrilled to be in such illustrious company on this list - including the The Secret Garden! 

Sara says . . . 

"This new series combines exciting locations such as Egypt’s Valley of the Kings and an archaeological site in China with unbelievable action and adventure, including ancient murder mysteries, deadly secrets, treasure, fire-breathing dragons, and terracotta warriors. I can’t wait to see where Moss will take us next."

Sara is a brilliant author whose new book, Chasing Danger will be a perfect read for anyone who enjoys fast-paced adventure and mystery.

Kensington Community Primary - I'm thrilled to be your new Patron of Reading

It was the toast that did it!
Mid-morning, halfway through my mystery-writing workshop with Y3  and suddenly the smell of hot buttered toast was wafting through the classroom. Foil-wrapped parcels of toast had appeared from the kitchens. We all tucked in, children, staff, visiting author . . . there's nothing more friendly and fortifying thing than munching on slices of toast together, especially for anyone who might have missed breakfast or had an early start. 

That's when I knew Kensington Community Primary was my kind of school!
