Keris Stainton is a talented YA author and (in the interests of full disclosure) a friend of mine. She also has two utterly bonkers boys (in the very best sense) and their hilarious conversations and one-liners make me giggle on a regular basis.
Keris compiled a selection of these into an ebook, As Delightful As A Carrot.
This week, she has released a follow-up volume, Calm Like a Stupid Feather, and I’m pleased to report it’s as funny, adorable, and occasionally disturbing as the first.
Now, I’m not just telling you this because Keris is a mate, or an excellent person (which she is), or because it’ll make you snort tea out of your nose with laughter (it will), but because Keris and her boys are donating all proceeds from the sale of the books to The Book Bus, a charity which promotes reading and literacy in developing countries.
Told you she was excellent. Now go and buy it!
