If this blog has a grandmother it is undoubtedly the very wonderful Candy Gourlay, whose blog made me realise how worthwhile social networking could be. In doing so she unleashed a monster, but that's another story.
Anyway Candy's book Tall Story is about to be published, and what a great book it is. The story of a hugely tall Filopino boy who travels to London to be reunited with his mother and basketball-mad sister; it's moving, funny, dramatic and memorable. One of those books where you're laughing and crying at the same time - that sounds incredibly trite, but it's true.
Candy isn't just an incredibly talented writer, she's also an illustrator and film-maker. Here's the trailer she's created for her book. Enjoy and share!
