Advance Review Copies of The House with Chicken Legs!

Yesterday a HUGELY exciting parcel arrived from Usborne! Nestled inside were Advance Review Copies (ARCs) of The House with Chicken Legs that look, smell and feel truly MAGICAL.


The ARC cover is a simplified version of the final cover that will be revealed at a later date, designed by Katharine Millichope and illustrated by the incredibly talented Melissa Castrillon.

I am mesmerized by its gorgeous fairy-tale beauty!


And am delighted my feathered friend, Jack, is perched on my author photo:


On the back cover, Marinka stands among the skulls and bones fence:


And inside are some enchanting visual treats:

The response to the ARC’s arrival on social media was incredibly exciting, and THEN the Queen of beautiful, lyrical writing, Kiran Millwood Hargrave tweeted THIS:


To find out Kiran had read an early copy was AMAZING, and to receive praise from her was simply overwhelming!

It was a wonderful and surreal day. And now there are only about 150 days until publication of final copies!
