Oliver and the Seawigs won’t be officially published until September 4th, but the publicity shenanigans have already begun. Our lovely publishers, Oxford University Press, threw a spectacular pre-publication party on the Golden Hinde in London this week, and you can find a full report by my illustrator and co-author Sarah McIntyre over on her blog. It may feature scenes of me playing the ukelele and wearing sneakers and a t-shirt (new book, new look). It also features the news that Oliver and the Seawigs will be published in the USA next year!
And here’s a trailer that’s been produced for the book by MB Films, featuring some of Sarah’s artwork.
To mark the actual publication of Seawigs there will be ANOTHER party – well, more of an EVENT really, at Daunt’s Books in Marylebone, London. We’ll be reading from the book, sarah will be drawing, and I daresay we’ll be singing our Sea Monkey song again (I might even have learned the chords by then).
Admission is free, but places are limited, so if you’d like to come, you’ll need to book a ticket. Here are the details:
