Holiday of a Lifetime is in the bookshops

It's fabulous to have Holiday of a Lifetime out in the bookshops for readers to enjoy, after having the story so long in my head. It's been exciting to hold the real book in my hands. I love the cover, and the way the aeroplane flies across the sky in each chapter heading. Very cute. The team at Omnibus did a great job. To top it off, I've had really positive comments from readers - I'm so glad they can see the funny side of Anna!  

I was tidying up the other day and found a postcard I bought in Finland of Moomins sliding off the snowy roof of their house, just like Anna does. If you haven't come across the Moomin books before, look them up. They are lots of fun, even if you are really a bit too old for them!
