A child's letter to me has just knocked me sideways. She asked me what is the most important thing anyone in Urchin of the Riding Stars says. I hope she doesn't want a quick reply, because I don't know. If any of you have opinions on this, I'd love to hear them. I'm delighted that children are asking intelligent questions about the books, it's just the intelligent answers that I struggle with.
Red Nose Day is bouncing nearer, and I'm trying to get a few things sorted for that. (A competition, a stall, a party, story-telling, a wee kidnapping, you know the sort of thing). Have you seen the website? www.rednoseday.com On 13 March, all the best noses will be red.
