...a very interesting-looking and incredibly illustrated book called 'WILDWOOD' by Colin Meloy and illustrated by Carson Ellis. Of course, I had to buy it and can't wait to read it! Carson Ellis is my favorite illustrator — I bought 'The Mysterious Benedict Society' by Trenton Lee Stewart, also illustrated by Carson Ellis, purely because of the cover (great story too!). Her work reminds me a little of another favorite illustrator of mine, Edward Gorey (check out his covers of the incomparable Joan Aikin's 'Wolves of Willoughby Chase' series. P.S. 'Blackhearts in Battersea' is one of my top three books and also one which I bought based on cover alone!) All in all, quite exciting! Talking of covers, can't wait to be able to reveal the cover for 'Doc Gutson's Revenge'! Watch this space!

    Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella lives. She now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia but luckily doesn't have to walk too far to buy bagels.
