EXCITING DELIVERY - an early copy of How To Be Extraordinary written by me and illustrated by Annabel Tempest! My heart stopped when I opened the package. The artwork was stunning in the PDF version I saw but it’s even more glorious in real life! Annabel really is the perfect person to bring the stories of these 15 incredible people to life. I’m so lucky to have been partnered with her. The WHOLE TEAM in fact. From my amazing editor Emily Lunn and the genius of a designer that is Steph Jones to Wendy Shakespeare and her editorial team at Puffin - this is my DREAM TEAM right here. I can’t believe how quickly we managed to put this book together. So proud of us all!
Apologies for the SPEED at which I’m talking in this video. I could barely contain myself. I promise to S L O W down next time.
