What I've been reading

I've been reading books by children's authors - about writing.

Singing for Mrs Pettigrew by Michael Morpurgo explains some of his stories and his writing life. Jackie Daydream is the story of Jacqueline Wilson's childhood, but talks about her books too. Both are good.

But the book I've loved recently is the graphic novel of Silverfin, Charlie Higson's first Young Bond book.

I don't normally read graphic novels. The only ones I can remember reading are Maus, about Nazi Germany and Safe Area Gorazde about the recent war in Bosnia.

I think I should read more graphic novels. They are like a cross between books and films.
