Yes, we've finally finished all our drawings, and our poems have been edited, critiqued, re-edited, and read through a zillion times... So we think it is about time we declared our next book FINISHED and READY TO LAUNCH!
We've decided to upload two versions of the book to the Apple iBookstore, one will include audio files. So you just click on a speaker icon for each poem verse, and you get to hear Melinda reading it out for you! We hope that Melinda will be able to borrow a Mac PC to upload both books on Saturday. Then we will have to wait for Apple to "process" them. We'll keep you posted on progress!
PD here now! Yes, we've had lots of fun and we've been laughing a lot today! First we had to get Melinda to read the poem verses out while we recorded them, but we all kept pulling funny faces at her, so she kept laughing or getting the words wrong!
Then, just when we'd finished rolling on the floor laughing at the audio recordings, Bert decided to make his first escape from his washing basket!
We knew that moment was getting very near, as Bert is pretty big now (twice the size of poor Odd Sock, who is supposed to be looking after him!) In fact Bert has been desperately trying to escape from his basket for the last couple of days!
Once out, Bert started tearing round the room like a crazy troll! Eventually we managed to calm him down and to get him to sit down. (I think he'd just worn himself out by that point.) TT and I couldn't help laughing at the sight of poor Odd chasing him around, trying to corner him! We think that Odd is now a lot more worn out than Bert. She hasn't even been on Twitter yet tonight, to say hello to her friends there!
We'd better go now, it's our bedtime here in the UK. Night night everyone!
