She would like children to illustrate the book for her. follow the link below to The Ickabog website for more details.

One or two chapters of the book are uploaded daily until July 10th. All the previous chapters are available too - so you can start reading from the beginning.

We would very much like to see your illustrations for this new book. Are there some new drawing skills, which you have developed? Why not then pop a picture onto SeeSaw of your illustrations with a little explanation of what you have drawn.
