Top Gossip!


Monday 22 March 2010

I’m back from my tour to China, and TOTALLY fell in love with the place… Beijing is just amazing! I met some very cool kids, saw some incredible sights and loved every minute… thanks to everyone at the BOOKWORM FESTIVAL for inviting me out there!

I didn’t have much spare time, but I still managed to see the Forbidden City, Tianamen Square and the Great Wall of China… whoa! I have a niece living in Beijing, so she was able to show me round – big hugs, Tara! While I was there, I filmed a programme for Chinese TV, ate some awesome veggie Chinese dishes, bumped into some friends from Scotland – what were the chances of that – and even met one of my all-time heroes, the rasta poet Benjamin Zephaniah.

All that, and it snowed, too… so hard that my flight home was delayed by 5 hours! Eek! I’ll post some pics so you can see what I got up to…

Now I’m back, I am very excited because it’s almost launch-time for the paperback version of Angel Cake… watch out for it in a shop near you from April 1st! There will be LOTS of CC books for you to read this year, but if you haven’t read Angel Cake make sure you don’t miss out… and remember, life is sweet!

    Wow! China sounds awesome! :D It definitely looks interesting. Angel Cake is my favourite CC book, and it'll be good when it is coming out in paperback, but I've already got the book! xD

    I've just had a peek at the pics and it looks beautiful! I hope I get to go there someday. I'm glad you had a nice time!! I agree, Angel Cake is my fave too, and I've just lent it to a friend and she say she can't drag her eyes of it! ixxxxxxxx

    I've always wanted to go to China! It looks soooo cool! I bet you had a great time, Cathy! :D

    Wow! Beijing sounds like great fun - I hope you had an excellent, super, fabulous time, Cathy! I can't wait for Angel Cake to come out in paperback because my mother is too poor to afford the hardback, it's been torture listening to all of my friends talk about it while I have to cover my ears so they don't spoil the ending! Bye bye, Cathy! xxx JJ

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,
