My Walker Books editor, has done a neat edit of my 1,200 words. I find chopping words excruciatingly difficult. She did it in a day. It certainly read better for it. I have just seen the final artwork. The beautiful illustrations are by Briony May Smith. When it’s launched in October I’ll put up a pic of the title page on the blog. One of Briony’s illustrations of the carnival elephants has been chosen for the story collection’s front cover!
