I have just heard that Kangaroo's Cancan Cafe is going to be featured on CBBC sometime soon! The author, Julia Jarman, just emailed me with the good news. Exciting stuff.
Actually, between you and me, I'm feeling slightly unloved, because Julia has had a contract for the broadcast arrive from the publisher this morning, while I have heard nothing at all.
This happened once before, about a year ago, with The Show at Rickety Barn, which has now been read quite a few times on CBeebies for Bedtime Story. But it wasn't until Tim, a friend of mine, emailed me one day to say, 'I've just seen your book on TV!' that I found out anything about it. Well done Tim! Unfortunately, I never got to see it, as I don't have children, but since that first time it must have been repeated, as a few other friends with young kids have been in touch from time to time.
Jemma Beeke, the author of The Show at Rickety Barn, got her contract and fee (admittedly not exactly enough to go on holiday with, but still...), whereas I am still trying to sort it out!
So 'thank you' to Julia, for letting me know, so I don't get left out again. And I hope this time I get to see my moment on TV!
