I am probably one of the world's slowest bloggers, usually taking two weeks to post news and I've done it again with this post about my lovely evening at the Waterstones Childrens Book Prize. It was a great night which went by in a flash. I didn't win anything except Britain's most popular bat based children's picture book (by default!). It was very exciting though and there was loads of people there (Waterstones Piccadilly). To cap it all off I met my comedy hero Michael Palin afterwards and made a right prat of myself!
