Look, it’s a happy Sadness cake that @fionawritesbooks made for the Picture Book Club in @waterstonesreading!
Thanks for all those who attended. It was lovely meeting you all, and a special thanks to Fiona for organising it and making this sweet Sadness cake.
Among other things, we talked a bit about how I worked on this book before I started developing it further with @andersenpress to the picture book ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’ it became, and how my own understanding of dealing with emotions like sadness evolved along the way. I’ve learned so much from working on this book and I keep learning from it through the conversations I’m having with people. It’s quite a wonderful thing and has been a special journey so far.
