Watch CBeebies Tonight!


Great news! A Lark in the Ark will be the Bedtime story on CBeebies tonight.

I don't usually get told in advance: I only found out about previous books of mine being read on CBBC when friends emailed to tell me, after the event. Frustrating.

So a big thank you to my publisher, Egmont, for letting me know the details - this time I can watch it for myself.

It turns out that the gorgeous David Harewood will be the one reading my book for you at 6.50pm, with my illustrations up on screen.

So, round up your various kiddies and tune in if you can!

By the way, by the time you read this, I will be off on my first school visit since the voice disappeared. Will I be giving the kids at Pipworth Primary my strangled frog impression? I'll let you know tomorrow...
