For instance, you could say:
While Mary Estes loved the book and couldn’t put it down, Weasley the ginger cat was disgusted by all the mice, and there is a point in the book that most cats turn off. You’ll have to read it to find out which bit, but I’d advise you not to read it to your cat. Especially if your cat is ginger…
I’ve just spoken to the publisher, Mona, and she had this amazing news. Less than a week after launching the dragons at Bookfest, the whole of the first print run (3,000 copies) is sold out! The book is already being reprinted…
Congratulations to the Booklet Fiction team – I’m amazed and delighted. Onwards and upwards!
Sarah Grant, English teacher and British expat in Bucuresti, had this to say about the book (and more).
Arabella McIntyre-Brown’s exciting Dragons Over London brings home the values of loyalty, courage and openmindedness through a whirlwind of magic, suspense and adventure. Whether you’re a tiny mouse or a huge dragon, acceptance and truth are the crux to overcoming bigotry, discrimination and prejudice to build strength and resilience in the face of adversity…. Read the whole review here.
Here are Luca and Nadia, proving that it’s never too early to fall in love with books… With thanks to Fairy Bookmother and family friend, Alexandra Craciunoiu.
Yes, the dragons have that wonderful label… the publisher’s book of the month!! Doesn’t that sound nice?
The book is rolling off the printing presses as I write! And Mona, the publisher, told me in secret (!!!) that the initial response from teachers has been very enthusiastic. In fact she said (even more secretly) that the Dragons are top of the list of forthcoming attractions…!! (apologies for all the exclamation marks – I usually hate them – but it is very exciting to hear this kind of thing from one’s lovely publisher!!!!!!!!!!!)
Okay – I’ve calmed down.
Several friends have asked how they can get their hands on a copy, so I thought a quick post was in order. The quickest and easiest way to order, is from the publishers themselves.
Booklet Fiction’s order line is:
021 430 30 95
And very soon I’ll post any other details about ordering.
There will also be news of events – book signings, readings, writing workshops, and more. Dragons are coming to town… your town.
