To celebrate the publication of The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow this week, some of my favourite children’s book bloggers took part in a Clockwork Sparrow video blog tour!
Each day of the tour featured a new video with me talking a bit about the book.
I loved all the amazing content created by the bloggers – like the Clockwork Sparrow craft project on Playing by the Book or George Lester’s fab video review.
I thought I’d post a quick round-up of the videos and links to all the blog posts here.
