To Be Read in Tooth and Claw

The deadline for my latest picture book give away has passed, and it's more than high time I picked a winner. There were a few late entries, but that's okay – they're all in the magic hat now. So if you'll just bear with me while I slip into my sequins...


Here we go...

Drum roll

The winner is...


… Loodles!

Congratulations, Loo. Just send an address to ***@***.fr with any names you would like me to dedicate this book to, and I'll get it in the post ASAP. And I hope you enjoy this fine -- and now very rare and collectible -- Book and CD bind-up.


  1. I popped over here from Musings of a Penniless Writer. What a gorgeous picture! I just have to follow you.

  2. Congrats, Loo! This is was a cool giveaway. :)

  3. i'm just finding your blog via Karen's BBQ. sorry i missed the contest :( congrats Loo!

  4. Also dropping by from the bbq. Nice to "meet"/follow ya. Love the looks of your corner of the Blogosphere.

    Congrats to contest winner Loo!

  6. Hello, I've clicked over from Musings of a Penniless Writer. Your work is beautiful, and I look forward to your future posts.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. I love the picture. You inspire me, I think I must draw something.

  8. Thanks for all the comments! It looks like I've got some visiting to do...

  9. Whoops,thought I'd left a message but must have clicked the ruddy wrong button! Just wanted to say that your tiger is brilliant, so cute!


  10. I just found you via Donna Hosie's BBQ, and I'm so glad I did. You're on my definite list to follow. I LOVE children's and YA literature. Dr. Seuss gratefully came out when my children were little, and now I have grandchildren who love to read good books. Yours sound good. So when went out of print. The fact that it was IN print and reached an audience is awesome, especially in today's book selling world.

    I'm sorry I didn't get in on the drawing. I would have loved to get the book. But, I congratulate Loodles, the winner.

    And will be back to your blog. I stand in awe of illustrators!

  11. Thanks Julie, and thanks Ann. I'm glad you like Clovis the tiger. He's still available in other editions, and was even briefly available as a cuddly toy.

  12. I've been a follower here for some time, enchanted by your wit and art, although I usually just lurk but today I must say hi and thanks for helping to put me over 400 followers!

  13. Just popped inn from the BBQ and oh oh OH is that tiger adorable!!

  14. oooooooo it's me, it's me. Thank you, thank you. Sorry i haven't written sooner, i hadn't checked my facebook.

    I am so chuffed, i'm all dizzy with excitement. Thanks for all for being supportive and not chucking things at me because i won ;o)

    thanks again Thomas, i really look forward to receiving it. The book is for me (but i have lots of friends with kiddies who will get to read it :o). I'll email you about dedication.



  15. Found you through Karen G's BBQ! My 4yo would love some of these books. I must check them out!Happy weekend.
