Hi Marcus! Thanks for the compliment and thanks for "heads-up" on Poulter's site. Though I'm confused as to what you're talking about...but forgive me, I'm a bit brain-fried at the moment due to an overwhelming amount of work. *Arghhhh!* But it's all good. :0)

Hey Marcus,
Glad to be your friend. Shared Books is a truly fantastic venture. It inspires me to find my old picture book dummies filed away (many moons ago)to send to you. Maybe one of these days...
Meanwhile all the best,

Hi Marcus,
