My bestselling boys

So… this happened

number 3
At one point late last night, As Delightful As a Carrot was No.3 in Parenting, No. 10 in Raising Children, and No. 39 in Humour. It almost made it into the Top 1000 for Kindle (I think it was 1028). When I told Harry and Joe we were nearing the Top 1000 of Kindle books overall they laughed. “Top 1000? That’s LOADS!” But there are 2,310,395 books in the Kindle store so Top 1000 sounds pretty good to me.

It was just so exciting to keep checking back and watching it climb the charts. (This morning, I’ve got a slightly wonky wrist from all the clicking.)

But charts aside, I was so touched by everyone who shared the book on Facebook, tweeted about it, told me how much they were enjoying it, reviewed it (there are some lovely – and funny – reviews on there) and, of course, bought it. Thank you. You’re ace.

New book! As Delightful As a Carrot


Told Harry off for being cheeky and he said, “Don’t worry. Tomorrow I will be as delightful as a carrot!”

Over the past few years, lots of people have told me I should publish a book of all the funny (and mad) things my two boys say. Well I’ve only gone and done it. (So if you said it, but didn’t really mean it, you’ll be looking a bit shifty right now.)

It’s called As Delightful As a Carrot: How My Boys See the World and it’s available from Amazon for the bargain (and a bit odd, thanks to VAT) price of £1.02. (It’s available on lots of international Amazon sites too, not just UK.)

There’s also a blog where you can find more quotes, photos and videos.

I really hope you like it.
