I think you might have worked it out by now!  But I’ll add another just for luck:


Yes, I’m in Venice, enjoying the canals, gondolas, beautiful buildings and the home-made Italian ice-cream (it’s called gelato – yum).

It’s a comfort to know that when I get home, I have plenty of books I can read that will take me back here.  I will be posting a list of all the children’s books set in or linked with Venice that I can find on the ABBA blog on the 17th of this month (that’s four days from now), if you want to take a look.  If you can think of any titles do let me know in the comments.



  • Emma Barnes writes funny, contemporary fiction for children – for more information see her web-page.
