Harriet Muncaster Goes on Holiday

An autumn trip to the seaside

It’s been a busy (but wonderful) autumn for Isadora Moon and I so far! I still have some catching up to do on my blog with some of my events. In the next few weeks I’ll be writing about Manchester, Richmond, Hitchin, and my Leicestershire school visit… This last week though, I’ve been on a wintry holiday with Henry and Celestine. We’ve been down in Cornwall visiting my favourite place in the world. It was also my inspiration for Mermaid Bay in Isadora Moon Goes Camping.

We’ve had a lovely week, and I feel recharged ready to get stuck into illustrating Isadora Moon Goes to the Fair before Christmas. Unfortunately, with all my events up until the day before we left, I didn’t get round to putting together a full blog post for this week. I thought I would instead share a few quick photos, and a link to an interview review I did recently with With Love for Books

I revealed the cover for Isadora Moon Goes to the Fair. The story is written, and I’ll be spending the rest of the year illustrating it. The book will be out in March 2018:

I was privileged to be part of the inaugural Hitchin Children’s Book Festival alongside James Mayhew. It was a successful and very positive event and I’ll be covering it in more detail in an upcoming blog post:

Someone Henry knows from his last job who now lives in Spain shared this great window display in Madrid:

I love the great montage they created for this shop display in Madrid!
Back to work

Having had a lovely week off, I’ll be hunkering down in my studio now until Christmas. Yesterday I did my second-to-last event of the year: Truro Waterstones. Now there is just Norwich Waterstones on the 25th November and that’s it for events this year! They’ve been great, and thank you so much to everyone who has attended any Isadora Moon events over the last few months.
