December 11th – Almost Half Way…

imagesCAXY7GERFor someone who aspires to post once a week, this advent calendar thing is quite a strain, especially after a three hour lunch with lots of other children’s authors and illustrators…

I thought I’d save you some time with today’s quote. If you’ve never read The Odyssey, here is an anonymous summary: Odyssey Lite. ‘After working late, a valiant warrior gets lost on his way home.’  How very true.

Everyone needs a good ghost story for Christmas, and they don’t come any creepier than today’s choice from the smoking bookshelves: The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. Forget about the film – or, indeed the play. This is the real deal. Don’t read it on any account if you want a good night’s sleep. Especially if you own a rocking chair…
