Jam Doughnut Shortlisted for The Children’s Book Award!

I am thrilled and delighted that The Jam Doughnut That Ruined My Life has been shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award 2017. I’m up against stiff competition – Michael Morpurgo and Claire Fayer – but it’s a real honour to have been nominated.


This is the only UK award that’s only chosen by children, and you can vote by following this link:



We find out who’s won in June.


All the best,
