Her work has also been adapted for TV with the 6-part adaptation of Pig-Heart Boy winning a BAFTA and Noughts & Crosses currently in production for the BBC, with Roc Nation (Jay-Z's entertainment company) on board to curate and release the soundtrack as Executive Producer. A stage adaptation of the book, by Pilot Theatre, will run from February 2019, under the direction of Sabrina Mahfouz.

Reviews

"Four short stories in one book, which are perfect for young readers to read alone or alternatively, are just the right length for bedtime stories. Betsey Biggalow is a fun character for whom things never go quite right, but she always makes the best of things." * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
"Somewhere between Pippi Longstocking and Tracy Beaker, Betsey Biggalow, who stars in these short, pacey stories, is an imaginative and enquiring girl who is sometimes mischievous but always endearing" * Guardian *
