About the book

Archive for March 2011

I’ve just heard from Sam Baker aged 10:

This is what I think of the book.

Leo’s Heroes is a fantasy novel about a boy who can jump through time.  The main character is Leo, he is a kind and likable boy.   Leo’s Mum gave him some posters about old fashioned toys, which he found intriguing.  This is when the story really begins.  Leo is fond of collecting things during his travels and has a passion for wooden puppets.

I really like Leo’s Heroes because you can read it at a slow relaxing pace and it tells you lots of interesting things about the past.

Thank you Sam! I appreciate you writing to me. I think you mean the toy theatre characters when you say that Leo has a passion for wooden puppets.

World Book Night at The Book Box in Clapton, east London – what a wonderful shop with lovely people; Joy who owns it and her two assistants both called Rosie. There was a good audience of children and grown-ups (the teenies fell asleep) and I was really well looked after. The shop had organised a writing competition, and I gave out certificates and prizes. A fabulous evening full of people who love books. www.bookboxonline.co.uk

I had been invited by the Oxted Children’s Book Group to visit a school on Monday 7th where I read Leo and the Medallion Fraud to two separate class 5 children. I then had a big after school group who listened to the story of John Logie Baird. The children all had lots of questions. Again, I received really super comments from the teachers.

What fun to be able to read my stories in bookshops and schools. Aren’t I lucky!

I really would love to publish your reviews of Leo’s Heroes. I hear that lots of children have enjoyed the adventures, so get writing. You can post comments on this blog.
