Hey, Tim!
Wouldn't you know? I just discovered Jacket Flap yesterday. Always a day late and pound sterling short. I think we're on a roll with FIRST DOG, buddy boy. Your cover is smashing! Far superior to the competition (in my humble opinion). See you in the bookstores, streak!

Hey there Tim. I met years and years ago at a book fair in Granville when I was in college. I've been doing the school visit circuit and everywhere I go I see that you're been there too. I've always been a big fan of your work. Hope we can meet again someday.

Hi Tim,

I would just like to say I love your illustrations, particularly ‘The bravest of the Brave’ and ‘Get well’. In which of your children’s books can these images be found?
