I have some very exciting news to share: Top Marks for Murder was the NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING children’s paperback in the U.K. AND Ireland last week!
This is absolutely huge – the highest chart position for any of my books, ever – and I feel so amazed and grateful to everyone who rushed out and bought a copy this weekend, to all of the amazing booksellers who worked to sell the book, and to my wonderful team at Puffin, who have worked so hard on this series, and are just as excited as I am about this!
Below are some pictures of me celebrating – as well as some of my favourite photos from this weekend’s events in Oxford, Crickhowell, Cardiff and Bristol. I’ll be popping up in Edinburgh next, on the 17th and 18th – check my calendar for details. Here’s to an absolutely TOP first week of Top Marks for Murder – three cheers for the Detective Society!
