I can't believe that this little magical picture book has been out for seven months already! Time flies and I am horrendously late in writing this little blog post update...
We have done a wonderful tour with some amazing and very supportive book bloggers and had fun taking pictures of the book in the wild.
I had so much fun writing this book and I could not be prouder of little brave Mabel Bloom and her journey to the Other Side of the World...
The seed of the idea for Magic Marmalade started as I was studying Curtis Brown Creative Writing Course and slowly developed into a fully fledged story book.
My inspiration came from everywhere but especially from my two little girls that are constantly full of ideas and one day we were having breakfast and one of them said. "Look, Mummy the marmalade is very wobbly and when you eat it you can wobble yourself into the shower and slip down the plughole. Yuck...and there it was the initial idea.
Here is a little blurb of the book ( just in case you would like to buy it)
Imagine you didn’t have to travel the ordinary way of transport. You could get from one place to the other quickly and without any delays.
Wouldn’t that be fantastic?
Mabel Bloom doesn’t like to travel the ordinary way. She dislikes buses, cars, trains or even planes.
But one day she receives a very important invitation from the Other Side of the world, so she turns to her grandpa for help.
Grandpa sends Mabel a recipe which, when made correctly, will give her the power to travel a very unusual way….
And Mabel’s extraordinary adventure begins.
