…and I’m not quite sure where to start, perhaps in the middle of everything.

This month is an exciting one for me because not only has the paperback edition of Ready, Steady, Ghost! finally hit the shops but Vile Visitors is going to be coming out on the 27th too!

Ready, Steady, Ghost! is written by Elizabeth Baguley and is about a small ghost called Bertie who nervously goes on his first haunting. Bertie has in fact been haunting bookshops in hardback for a year now so its lovely to see him make his return in paperback.

Vile Visitors is the second Diana Wynne Jones book I have illustrated, the first being Earwig and the Witch. I love Diana’s stories and Vile Visitors is no exception. It was such fun to illustrate especially since it has a couple of real rotters in it! That combined with some slightly out of control magic and an awful lot of feisty furniture made it a bit of a dream job really…
