COVER REVEAL FOR MARK OF THE CYCLOPS

 

Bloomsbury revealed the back and front covers for the first of my Ancient Greek Mysteries series. The book will be launched on the 9th March and I shall be doing a mini book tour in Leeds schools to promote it.

 

There will be other events during the year too, so keep tuned to see if I am visiting a venue near you.

Today I'm celebrating my first Arabic publication in the UK. It's a translation of The King of the Forest, published by Collins in their Big Cat Reading scheme. The original came out two years ago and is becoming very popular in schools.

 

The story is an old Chinese legend about a fox who learns to survive in the forest using cunning and ingenuity. It was the inspiration for Julia Dondaldson's Gruffalo books.

 

I am hoping to teach myself enough Arabic by next term to be able to read it schools.
