Hello people of Felixstowe. It’s an exciting time at the moment because of many things. First of all, my new Boyface book is coming out very soon. This one is called Boyface and the Uncertain Ponies and it’s my favourite one so far. What’s even more exciting than usual though, is that I actually got to see this one being printed.
I spend a lot of time in schools and in every one there is usually someone who asks “how do you make the books?” So I thought I had better find out. The printers invited my wife and I so we went last week to see my actual book being bound and glued together. The machines they use are very similar to the Machine that Boyface uses to monger stripes. There were conveyor belts and buckets and baskets and hoppers and choppers. And the whole factory smelled of paper, glue and tattoos. They gave me the very first book off the press which was a huge honour. All in all, it was a wonderful day.
