Waterstones Children's book of the Month

The Girl of Ink and Stars has been given the best possible start. Not only have I received wonderful support from Blackwells and Foyles and many lovely independent shops, but it was selected as Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month. There’s a gorgeous blog about it here, but here is one of my favourite bits.

The Girl of Ink & Stars is the much-anticipated choice for our Children’s Book of the Month. That rare thing – a genuinely timeless, heart-on-its-sleeve adventure – this fictional debut from Oxford-based Kiran Millwood-Hargrave is as beautifully produced as it is written.

I’m incredibly grateful to everyone at Waterstones for having such faith in the book, and for doing such an amazing job of selling it!
