Winter is drawing in…making it the perfect time for curling up with a book in front of an open fire.
(Actually I don’t have an open fire. Or even a fake electric one. I have an empty fireplace with a plant in it. But who cares? I can pretend.)
What are the ingredients of a perfect winter read?
For me I especially love:
(maybe with a sprinkling of magic)
Deep ones. Preferably full of snow and wolves!
I’ve tried to put all these things into my book Wolfie: a magical Big Bad Wolf, snowy woods…and also an ordinary girl, Lucie, who falls into an adventure. Here is one of the illustrations by Emma Chichester Clark.
There’s one more thing of course…Christmas! Here is one of my favourite Christmas reads.
What are your recommendations for those long winter nights?
