All books are special but The Day Rudolph’s Nose Turned Blue is very special for me. It’s the first book I’ve written with my partner, Alan aka Mr X.
I wanted to write a book which was pure fun to write and I came up with the idea that Father Christmas would be already to go off on his epic present delivering journey but the reindeer were all reclining in the barn and unable to pull the sleigh. Al and I ended up trading lines to make each other laugh and from our jokes Rudolph emerged.
The fabulously talented Shane McGowan agreed to illustrate and he entered into the fun and we’ve ended up with a quirky, funny rhyming picture book.
We hope readers enjoy it as much as we three enjoyed working on it.
And if you want to know why Rudolph’s nose turned blue, you will need to read the book! (It may be because he had the flu.)
A big thank you to our Christmas elf, Mabel!
