Synopsis

Nixie: Wonky Winter Wonderland by Cas Lester

Snow days are for sledging, skating and snowball battles and no-one is safe from Nixie's expertly aimed snowballs or her mischievous wonky wand. But one fairy is missing out on all of the fun, where is Fidget the butterfly fairy? It's up to Nixie to find her and prove that she's not such a bad, bad fairy but a rather ingenious one!

Reviews

I absolutely love Nixie, a funny little fairy with attitude. This is a stylishly told, delightful story for girls just starting to tackle chapter books - or a brilliant bedtime story to be read aloud. * Jacqueline Wilson *

A Q&A with Cas

What inspires your writing? Children – they’re the 8th wonder of the world, and the greatest invention both before and since sliced bread.

How did you first become an author? I gave up making children’s television programmes and desperately needed to make something else up for children.

What are you reading right now? Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sausages by Tom Holt – hilarious and very clever.

What was your earliest career aspiration? Watching a BBC adaptation of a children’s book and thinking: That’s what I want to do - I want to make something magical for children.

What advice would you give to budding writers? Stop mucking about and get on with it!

What was your favourite childhood book? WINNIE THE POOH.

Where is your favourite place to write? Next to Bramble, my Springer Spaniel.

How do you read- print, digitally or both? Both.

Who do you most admire? People who chase their dreams.

Are there any books you wish you had written? Honestly? The list is endless!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
