About the Author:

If you would like to find out more about me and my books then please visit my website at www.whenham.com or my Facebook page www.facebook.com/RuthWhenhamBooks. I am always keen to hear from readers. A quick note on reviews - please post them! My first book, 'My Crazy Purple Pen' was inspired by a leaving gift from my work colleagues when I left the NHS; a very smart purple pen (surprisingly enough!) and writer's notebook. Just a few days after leaving work, I sat down, opened up my notebook and began. I didn't have a plot in mind at the outset but everything seemed to flow almost by itself and by the end I was satisfied that I had included all the elements required for a good read; a character children could empathise with, humour at the expense of authority figures (which in my experience kids love), suspense and a small moral message thrown into the mix. I found an illustrator, Emma Hunt, who was able to bring the story to life in just the way I had envisioned. She has a unique style which I thinks fits perfectly with the fun and modern tone of the book. I collaborated again with Emma on my next book, 'The Day My Teacher Came to Tea'. I wanted to write a farce style story for children. Those stories in which one small mishap leads to another and another until the whole situation has spiralled out of control, have always appealed to me. I hope children will delight in seeing the boy's rather stern teacher becoming increasingly messy and bedraggled as the story unfolds. I like to add in a 'spot the .....' aspect to my stories. In this case there is a cheeky spider to be found. My latest book, a tale about a girl baking a cake with her Dad for her Mum's birthday tea, is my husband's favourite. I think this is probably due to the fact that it includes a recipe for pink party cake! I am currently working on a series of three books centred around a pirate named Captain Sillyvoice. These should be available by the end of the year.

Review:

I loved My Crazy Purple Pen - a well-thought out and nicely written rhyming tale with lots of humor and mischief. The story links the antics of the pen to feelings of loneliness and boredom, and gives an adult sharing this story with a child the chance to talk about feelings and behavior, and why the naughty pen/the little boy might be getting up to these tricks. The rhyming style makes it attractive for emerging readers to read for themselves as well. Just lovely. Recommended.Reviewed By Hilary Hawkes for Readers' Favorite
