New Mudpuddle Farm books by Michel Morpurgo have arrived

Yay! My copies of the new Mudpuddle Farm books by Michael Morpurgo have arrived. They look just fab!

See Haw Hooray is a pair of new stories in which there are major changes at Mudpuddle Farm. I can’t tell you more – you’ll have to read it!

the six other titles in the series have been brought out again in new editions with two stories to each book.

It is so great to be working with Michael again.  These books first came out a long time ago, but Mudpuddle farm, with Farmer Raffery and all his animals, has a timeless quality to it.

I hope we will do many more together.

Old jokes are still funny!

Some old jokes are still funny. I’m currently working on updating the Christmas Stocking Joke Book, which was a number 3 best seller back in 1989 when it fist came out – beaten by Matilda and Prince Caspian!

I now have the rights back and I’m updating it to bring out this Christmas – probably a bit late! Some of the jokes are very dated – some are now politically incorrect – though I’m surprised how few – and some are still very funny – well, they made me titter then and still do now.

My favourite so far?

Grandad suffers terribly from wind, so we bought him a kite for Christmas!

I know, there is still a nine year old boy inside desperate to get out.

Of the new jokes I’m thinking of adding, I just can’t quite decide if I should put in:

What does Miley Cyrus eat on Christmas Day?
Twerky!

What do you think?
