This post is a bit of a news roundup, since there’s been a spate of articles and posts since I last wrote about publicity for the Frances Lincoln Diverse Voices Book award, including this profile of me by Deakin University, this interview published by JournalLive and an interview with Paper Tigers.

Also, if you haven’t checked it out already, take a look at the Times Online piece Should children’s books be more multicultural has opened a real can of worms, generating more than 100 comments and still the debate rages.

Other Takeshita Demons coverage included this post on Carousel News, a post on the Japan Exchange and Teaching Alumni Professional and Freelance Community blog (,  a post by YA writer Rhiannon Lassiter,  and a mention in children’s book blog Chicken Spaghetti.

Thanks everyone for your support!!

  1. I have written 2 multiculture books for children over the last few years and have my third book in for colour and it will be in print before Christmas. I have worked with all cultures I have written about and find a real need in the Children book market for this product. I am self published currenty, and interested in all books regarding multiculture so feel free to forward information or comments.
