Steam irons and stove pipes! Check out this cogtastic #Cogheart artwork sent to me by Starbeck School. There’s diagrams of all the seasons new mechanimals - they all appear to have the latest in poop shoot technology!!! 💩 - plus guides on how to look after your mechanical owl. What to know about your mechanical cat. Instructions for a mechanical guineapig who runs on oil and hot steam! And a story about a malfunctioning robot! Fantastic stuff!? #cogheart #cogheartadventures #usbornebooks #peterbunzl #StarbeckSchool @usborne_books #moonlocket

I have to report I finished reading #OrphanMonsterSpy by @by_matt_killeen the other day. And it is absolutely stunning. An edge of the seat YA spy story about a Jewish girl going undercover in a Nazi boarding school. It had me chewing my nails from start to finish - until the very last word! #usbornebooks @usborneya @usborne_books

I LOVE Rivers of London - weirdly I was reading it when I wrote Moonlocket and it inspired one element of the plot. Right now I am reading Moon Over Soho... #Repost @bumba1717 with @get_repost

She was trying to show me how a life can move from the darkness.
She said to get better.

At the end of last week one of my year 5 children told me they had read all of the books in their classroom selection. So on Monday I gave him a few new ones to try. This lovely note was left on my desk this morning. I’ll be on the hunt this half term for new texts to add to his collection #reading #books #newbooks #texts #new

Fantastic afternoon birthday treat - The Grinning Man at Trafalgar Studios. A musical cross between The Elephant Man, Sideshow Freaks, the Joker and the Tiger Lillies! Apparently based on The laughing man by Victor Hugo #thegrinningmanlondon

Thanks @gingerpop42 - these cakes look amazingly yummy! I am sure Lily would LOVE them. My stomach is rumbling right now!#repost (@get_repost)

...I made these for Lily Hartman, protagonist of the Cogheart stories by @peter_bunzl. I'm not sure why I made hallongrottor. They're dainty and light and look great on the afternoon tea table but they're also robust enough to survive an adventure in your pocket. Very much like Lily. .

Except wouldn't look great on an afternoon tea table. Let's make that an official thing now. No, under any circumstances, putting people on afternoon tea tables.
Happy Sunday all 💖
