I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Gloria Bailey of the Publishers Association,
for her wonderful and usual attentiveness as I joined their collective
stand in Frankfurt this year.
It was a good and busy fair, and we saw many good friends
and aquaintances, and many new ones.
Lots of interest in Rockpool Children's Books titles and I'm
delighted to thank Frans Maree of Fantasi, a South African publisher
for taking Sam Walshaw's Maisey and the Pirates series at the fair.
They will be published in Afrikaans.
One of my main aims was to try and interest French publishers
in our list of French titles...
