David Mason about this book: I co-operated with a fifteen year old girl who did the illustrations while I did the text. Got a couple of reviews and one commented on a misplaced comma and full stop. Next time I saw my partner she said "And have you corrected that?" I'm only eightythree so I've got used to doing what I'm told! Her drawings are absolutely mind blowing, even designed the cover, she is so original - I'm glad it was me who spotted her talents.
Together we have made a great book for anyone from aged eight up. 'An Old Curiosity Shop' by Dickens had lots of strange things inside. This has lots of strange people, and is all about a boy and a girl who discovered them. You can lose yourself, dreaming about the people you read about here. I have written books before, but this is the first time Jenny has seen her work published. Only on Ebook at the moment on Kindle - paperback soon, we hope. Please buy the book to encourage her on her way.
