Many thanks to all at Kildare Libraries for taking care of me during last week’s reading tour. All the kids were terrific and, as always, I am blown away by the intelligence and level of engagement shown during our Q&As. Especially thanks to the pupils in Monasterevin who delighted me by several bursts of spontaneous applause, and also to the lovely pupils and teacher from the reading group at Athy College with whom I had such an interesting chat – I look like a tiny tiny hobbit in this picture though – was there some kind of temporal warping going on here?
OK. I have to get my skates on. It’s a long drive to Cork and I’ve things to do before I set off. BTW, if I owe you an interview, a reply to fan mail, or a drawing, I am so so sorry. I’ve fallen way behind on my to-do list. Most interviews are nearly completed, though, and I will be e-mailing them this week. Fan mail and drawings may take me a little longer, especially those that are depending on my getting to the post office, but I WILL CATCH UP SOON. I promise.
