My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish had it’s launch party at Tales on Moon Lane in Herne Hill last week and it was a night to remember.
There were speeches, laughs, and a surprise appearance from a small orange cuddly Frankie! (seen here guarding a pile of books). He is handmade by my multitalented agent, Gemma Cooper and will be travelling with me on school visits so look out for him if I come to your school.
There was also an awesome cake that looked exactly like the book cover. It seemed a shame to cut it but then again it seemed a shame to have cake and not eat it so we did. And discovered that it was orange inside! I did lots of signing books with my special zombie green marker pen and lots of smiling (my face hurt a lot the next day from all the smiling) but it was sooo worth it.
I want to say thank you to my fantastic agent Gemma, George and Tamara and the lovely folk at Tales on Moon Lane and the amazing team at Macmillan Children’s Books for making the night so much fun!
