World Book Day – My Day

In honour of World Book Day, here are the books I have read to my children today! I love all of them but if I had to pick, “Aliens Love Underpants” wins every time. It’s inspired me to write my 3rd project, believe it or not.

Bright Stanley by Matt Buckingham

The Jungle Run by Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees

The Tickle Book by Ian Whybrow and Axel Scheffler

Colour Me Happy by Shen Roddie and Ben Cort

Room On The Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

I Wish I Were A Pirate by Smriti Prasadam-Halls And Sarah Ward

Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort

I am taking all these reading opportunities to do my research on what works in children’s books, looking for specific themes and length etc. Unfortunately there are some books that I don’t approve of and I’m amazed they even got published, see my Naming & Shaming part of my blog for further info.

I love reading books to my children, hence the major desire to write my own books for them!


"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
