Early reports from the frontline suggest that Be Careful Ethel is going to be just as popular as The HPM - if not more so
Having been the only book on the shelf for so long, The Hairy Plug Monster has now had to make room for the new kid in town.
We received the first 'mock up' of Be Careful Ethel this week and it looks superb. We came up with the idea of the promotional clip to boost awareness and have already had a very positive response.
I gave the copy of Be Careful Ethel to Maya-Rose's teacher to test drive on her class, without saying who wrote it and came back with the following:-
Erin: "very good, I liked the King and Queen"
Luke: " Liked that the story rhymed"
Maddy: "I really liked it, I liked the 'dont panic' bits
Louie: " Liked the cheesy teddy bear bit
Rowan: " I liked the cheesy teddy bear bit too!"
Ankita: "I want to buy the book right now"
Harry: "I laughed at the cheese teddy bear bit"
Miss Steyert " The children really enjoyed Be Careful Ethel and laughed throughout. Especially when Maurice spread cheese on his teddy bears. The children joined in with the 'dont panic" bits -
So in a nutshell it looks like its going to be as well liked as the Hairy Plug Monster, but could you do me a favour when it does come out -even though I enjoy being told how much you like my stories,
don't tell me - just tell everyone else
