CAUTION: A fish named Doreen has taken over my twitter feed… and now my blog! I cannot be held responsible for anything.

In celebration of POOR DOREEN (swimming into stores in March) I’m doing a fantabulous giveaway!

But before we get to the giveaway, introductions are in order.

Meet Poor Doreen, the fish star of my new picture book.

Actually. Sorry. Her full name is Mrs Doreen Randolph-Potts. Ever heard of a fish with such a name? Neither had I.

And she is quite unusual. Have you ever seen a fish in a headscarf? With an umbrella? Me neither. Nevertheless here she is.

Now, Doreen is on a mission—to visit her second cousin twice removed who’s just had 157 babies… But unknown to her, she is dodging disaster at every turn on her journey upstream—oblivious to the mortal danger she is in! She remains an oblivious unfortunate fish, utterly clueless, despite the narrator’s panicky warnings along the way… like, “OH NO DOREEN! That’s not a dragonfly! IT’S A HOOK!”

Fortunately, for Poor Doreen, that’s not the end of the book or of her. (As you’ll find out when you read the book.)

FOR A CHANCE TO WIN “POOR DOREEN” I want to hear from you! Please enter 1 of the following via Twitter, or Instagram, or my Facebook page (here) and make sure to include the hashtags to be in the running -

The contest will run until the end of March and a winner will be chosen at random to receive a free book (you may enter more than once! You may enter 101 times! As much as you like.)

And entrants will be featured in future blogs too! Don’t miss the chance to have your fish portrait shown in a glorious fish gallery.

I can’t wait to hear from you, and to share more about POOR DOREEN in coming weeks.
