Children's books offer endless opportunities to let your imagination run wild - be you the reader, or the writer. Writing the MARCY books was great fun and it's wonderful to hear from so many MARCY readers. A special thank you to those of you who have suggested ideas for future MARCY books. As someone who has always loved books, it won't surprise you that I collect them - lots of them. Some of my favourite books are very very old and I have a number of children's books that are over 100 years old!
