Things you didn't know about Amy Macdonald

1. I will do almost anything for chocolate.

2. I love all animals. When I was little, I once saved a frog from being swallowed by a snake. I also raised a family of baby mice that had made a nest in my sleeping bag.

3. I can whistle through my fingers and wiggle just one ear.

4. Most people don’t know that my real name is Margaret. No one has ever, ever called me that.

5. As a little girl I refused to hold my mother’s hand when crossing the street. I always insisted on “holding my own hand”.

6. I played ice hockey on a women’s college team – even though I didn’t go to that college. I just showed up at practice one day. I wore figure skates because I didn’t own any hockey skates.

7. In one of my picture books most of the characters are named after my favourite children’s book editors.

8. My favourite sound is the noise rain makes on the roof when you are falling asleep.

9. I have a Border Collie who is smarter than most people I know.

10. The thing I miss most about not living in England is having milk delivered to my door.
