Children’s Book Radio Interview
A couple of months ago I got an email to say that Ark in the Park had been reviewed on the podcast Children’s Book RadioEpisode Guide. I think it’s quite new, but it’s a great idea with some very interesting reviews, so naturally I was very happy to agree to an interview about the book and its writing.
