Hi, it’s Grimly here and I am furious. I’m up to my ears in revising the second book in the Vale of Strange series (due later this year) so I sent my minion Simon Ounsley to see this journalist person who wanted to interview me and the next thing I hear is he’s trying to claim he wrote the book himself! This is not the first time he has displayed such delusions of grandeur. I would dismiss him instantly, mark my words, but he’s the only one who knows how to work the cappuccino machine.
Hi Everyone – Well, time has been scurrying on without leaving too many posts here on Grimly’s website. so I’m delighted to be able to bounce back with this new audio review of the book plus a quite frankly terrifying picture of a bogey by seven-year-old Lucy West.
Let’s listen to the review first:
Which got us wondering: Lucy says Algernon is her favourite character from the book. What is yours – and why? Would you like to write in and tell us? We’d love to hear from you. It’s probably easiest to use the ‘Contact Grimly’ page, the link to which is (most likely) on the right hand side of the screen. Or you can email us at grimlydarkwood03 (at) gmail (dot) com
Maybe you would also like to send us a drawing inspired by the book, just as Lucy has done, though you may find it hard to draw a bogey as scary as hers:
Hey, where’s everyone gone? Oh, I see. They haven’t left after all. The whole of Team Grimly is hiding behind the sofa. Can you terrify them too? Please send us your monster picture and we’ll post it here…
See you next time then. And remember: don’t forget your hat!
Please note that by submitting your comments, audios, photographs, pictures etc you are giving us permission to post them online. Many thanks to Lucy and her father Graham for sending us these.
