Here are the paperback versions of the first three Betony books – and the new one, Princess Betony and the Hobgoblin.
Aren’t they beautiful? I was saying to my husband today that I think the Hobgoblin story may be the best so far.
It’s always tremendously exciting to receive the advance copy of a new book. There’s nothing like holding it in your hands and knowing that it’s real – at last! This is particularly true of illustrated books, where there can be a long time between writing the book and receiving the printed copy.
So today I did my happy dance, opened the parcel up right there in the post office and showed them around. People were very nice and encouraging and not one person suggested I might be a little odd!
All four of these are out in July.
I’m so disappointed that the Princess Betony and the Hobgoblin book is not in a matching hardcover edition. My daughter loves books and treasures her hardcovers of Princess Betony – to not have the best story in a matching edition is a crime…
I was disappointed too. The reason they changed is that libraries weren’t buying the little hardbacks, because they couldn’t shelve them… I’m so glad your daughter enjoys the stories!
