Sparky the Dragon bus is finally on the road. Her journey has certainly been an adventure.
Sparky will be off on her own tour next February.
The book holds a special significance to me, both from my Playbus past and my teacher friend who encouraged me with my writing.
Although she’d been ill when I wrote A Spooky Tale, she was feeling better, I dedicated this book to her.
Over the summer my friend and I tried to meet up but with busy lives, one way or another, we had not managed it. Sparky was now about to be published and i had a copy ready to give to my friend. Sadly, a week before the blog tour, for ‘A Spooky Tale' and the cover reveal for ‘Sparky’, I learnt that my friend had died quite suddenly.
Sparky the Dragon bus encouraged many children to come along to the play scheme where they played alongside children of all abilities.
A copy of the book was sent to The Princess Royal I was pleased to receive a letter of thanks and hope ‘that her granddaughters will very much enjoy reading it.’
