I've been locked in my studio with smoke billowing from my flailing paintbrushes, trying to get Marmaduke Duck and Bernadette Bear in a fit state to be sent off to the printers and turned into a book - and I finished! I made the deadline! Who'da thunk it? Certainly not me... anyways, to celebrate, here are my favourite pics from the book. For the picture with all the animals rushing across the fields to Marmaduke's shop, I asked some kids I know what their favourite animal was, and then put them all in! Kayla, the dog's for you. Jessie, I hope you like your eagle. Brynn, the barn owl's lookin' at you, kid... and the sloth is mine. But can't stop, because I'm hard at work on Fearless 2, and on getting organised to fly off to the USA in three weeks - more on all that later.
