Grumble Belly and Bear Hunt

Two new (but old) books come out this month.
Mustard, Custard, Grumble Belly and Gravy is a book made up of two books that went out of print: You Can't Catch Me and Don't Put Mustard in the Custard. What Bloomsbury have done, is get me to give titles to all the poems, re-edit some of them, write an introduction and record all the poems for a CD that comes with the book, tucked into the back cover. Quentin Blake as redesigned the book and done some new drawings (including a very jokey one for the last page). This makes me one of those extremely lucky authors who has managed to bring some books that have been out of print back into print. I think Bloomsbury and Quentin have done a magnificent job in producing something that looks and feels so good.

Meanwhile, We're Going On A Bear Hunt goes into its latest incarnation as a pop-up. It's a great piece of engineering.
