My latest book is called Oliver and Patch.
When Oliver finds a little lost dog called Patch, he makes his first friend in the big new city. The trouble is, he knows that someone, somehere will be missing him. It’s stunningly illustrated by the very talented Kate Hindley, in a beautiful palette of colours. Hope you enjoy reading it!

Hello Eli!!!

Hi Eli, I’ve enjoyed reading about your favourite books, and I’m so glad that Pirates Love Underpants is your fav picture book. I really like your castle drawing and I also LOVE snow and walking in crunchy snow. It’s great to hear you enjoy books of all sorts.

Happy reading!

PS What a great bubble gum bubble you’ve blown in your photo – I always wanted to blow bubbles like that!!!

Thank you to all the schools that have contacted me recently to ask if I could come and visit you all. It’s wonderful to hear how excited you all are about reading. Unfortunately I have been overwhelmed with requests for Spring 2015 and, sadly,can no longer accept any more invitations at this moment. I need time to write some more books for all you lovely boys and girls to read!
Thank you everyone!

So excited as this award is judged by children only – hooray!!!

Good news for followers of Sparky – George’s Dragon. His latest accident prone adventure is out now. Read how Sparky causes mayhem at the fire station – but can he redeem himself and make George proud? QWhat do you think?
I hope you enjoy the book, beautifully illustrated by the wonderful Russell Julian.

Hello Brady,

Thank you for writing to me – I only received your letter a few days ago! You didn’t give your address so I can’t write back, but it was lovely to hear that you love my underpant books. I loved your cavemen drawings – thank you for sending them! In answer to your question – my new book MONSTERS LOVE UNDERPANTS is due out this October. So watch out for your pants Brady! x
