Wicky Wacky Farm Update

30th April 2015

I have some very exciting news, after giving up on my children’s books ever being published in China; I received an email from Blue Sky Publishing Company, Beijing, to say they have agreed to my conditions. So all going well, one very large ‘Wicky Wacky Farm book’, holding ten stories will hit the shelves in China come June this year. You will not recognise Donny and Lulu, they now have dark hair and round eyes. Blue Sky used their own artist, who has done all illustrations by hand. Now that’s special!
