Claire talked to the children about her pets, showing them pictures. She chose a dog for her main character because she was thinking about best friends. To make him a best friend forever,  he had to be a ghost! She said she tries to write about things she knows about. The children asked lots of questions and enjoyed all the things that she had to show them.


Claire’s next book about Knitbone is out next March. There will be a book three- but the title is a big secret!

A message on her website says:

WOW. What an AMAZING time I had in Weston-Super-Mare and Bristol! Thank you so much for having me and for all of your wonderful questions. I hope  Knitbone Pepper makes you laugh! x
