Can you guess what it was?
YES! My author copy of Aerodynamics of Biscuits!

I can’t thank *cue Opera-style speech* Steve, Kim and the Maverick Team enough for giving me this amazing opportunity, and of course, the wonderfully talented Sophia Touliatou for bringing the story to life and then some.
It also wouldn’t have been possible without the support of SCBWI, my family and friends and especially my husband, James, pictured here being dragged around the Oliver Jeffers’ exhibit in London. The rest of you will have to wait until Monday 28th September I’m afraid!
