De Verschrikkelijke Verhalen van Oom M

So I didn't make the shortlist for the Lincolnshire Young People's Book award. To see the shortlist follow the link. This is the second time I've been longlisted without going further. Maybe next time.

We went to Wicken Fen today on a lovely crisp autumn day. It is one of my favourite places within easy reach of Cambridge. It is so peaceful - even with the odd yelling kid here and there. It is also a potentially spooky setting too - with all those reeds whispering in the breeze.

And the Dutch edition of Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror arrived today. The publisher is Pimento and they really have spent some time making it a very handsome edition, reworking the original cover very cleverly in a hardback that keeps all of David Roberts' illustrations.
