A solution to the mystery of Monacello 3  I am very sorry to say that it has been decided not to go ahead with .publication of the final part of the Monacello trilogy(That's how the book industry is right now, I'm afraid.) I feel really badly towards readers who, having bought the first two books, have been left hanging.    So I have decided to PUBLISH PART THREE,  Monacello:  Anything but Perfect, RIGHT HERE, ON THE WEBSITE.   In due course, I am hoping all three books can published in one satisfying volume for people coming to the story for the first time. But for those of you who have already embarked on Monacello's search for his roots, the concluding adventure of the  'Little Monk' is available here, free of charge, NOW!  Just go to the Books logo, Book of the Moment and click on Monacello: Anything but Perfect.

‘ How I made an Exhibition of myself’. The Story Museum in Oxford – if you find yourself in the town, make a beeline for it – come up with some really unusual events.  None is more wildly ambitious than the idea to get 26 authors, dress them up as the story character they liked best when they were children, and get a world-class photographer to take pictures of them.  Cambridge Jones – a fabulously famous photographer of VERY famous people – agreed, and the result is an exhibition which runs from now till November. Each author (actually they’re not all authors) has a room which has been turned into  a story grotto, complete with clouds or trees or snow or a ship’s deck…. Spread over three floors of the vast rambling Museum which used to be a telephone exchange. Jamila Gavin’s is so warm and pretty that it transports you to a foreign land.  There’s a ‘through-the-wardrobe’ Narnia, Philip Pullman as Long John Silver…it seems a shame to spoil the surprise, though. You have to go and see it for yourself. There’s even a recording of each story that you can listen to while taking in the surroundings. Here I am, then.  And no I’m not going to tell you who I am, because you have to guess. But if you want a clue: there’s a very big monster, a very small insect and  a splendid horse. If you want to know more, pay a visit to

Coming to a cinema near you… Exciting news about The Middle of Nowhere! Good, clever people want to turn it into a movie, shot in Australia. Simon Reade and Guy de Beaujeu  (who made the film of Private Peaceful) think they can make it happen, and I believe them.
