Tomorrow is officially the start of the school hols
round these parts, so it's time to get drawing!
If you have a copy of Glister: The Haunted Teapot
you'll know there's a teapot-shaped space to
design your own haunted teapot on the inside
Please e-mail me your designs as a .jpg file and
I'll send out a Glister sketch to those who come up
with my faves (by post or by e-mail). If you're happy
to have your pics on the blog let me know and
I'll post them here. You don't have to use the actual
template in the book, you can start getting
creative on any old piece of paper and e-mail them
IMPORTANT: If you're under 18 please get permission
from a grown up before sending your drawings.
This is open to all-ages so get scribbling regardless
of how old or young you are.

Detail from Glister: The Family Tree.
The first two Glister books are out but friends and family have been
asking me where they can find a copy.
If you're wanting to walk into a book shop and buy a copy off the
shelves the best bet is your local children's bookshop, if you're
fortunate to have one close by. Borders are supporting the book
with separate displays for kid's comics (so I hear), and they're online.
Waterstone's availability is rather patchy but Amazon have both books.
