The Goodnight Star
How it began

I always find it interesting when I have finished a book to look back at my very first thoughts. Some spreads end up almost identical to my first thumbs where others go through many changes. It took me a while with Goodnight Star to get Megan right. I had a lightbulb moment when I decided to put her in pyjamas rather than a floaty nightdress. Suddenly I felt she had the right attitude.

'The Goodnight Star'  author Amy Sparkes will be having a book launch on Saturday 12th September from 10.30-11.30 at Tiverton Library.

Amsterdam Faces





I just had a really good break in Amsterdam.
I couldn't go to the Netherlands-home of Dick Bruna and not treat myself to a few Miffy souvenirs! Above are some that I 
couldn't bring home!
1. De Winkel Van Nijntje, Amsterdam, Maastricht  - A shop 
dedicated to Miffy - Heaven!!! 
2. Schiphol Airport 
3. Delft Store, Amsterdam 
4. Nijntje (Miffy) Art Parade, Museumplein Square. To celebrate 60 Years of Miffy, 60 artists were asked to decorate a 1.80 metre high statue of Miffy. The Miffy Art Parade statues will be on display in various places in the Netherlands and Japan. The statues will be auctioned in October, with the proceeds going to UNICEF.
