About this deal

He points to a cardboard box on which is scrawled the word HELMET, and I wonder what else of Eddie might be crammed into this den, out of sight. Getting Better is written in an unusual stream-of-consciousness style which can be a bit rambling and goes off on all sorts of tangents and parenthetical detours. How many children learnt to eat up their lettuce because it contained lodnum [laudanum] which was good for you? Jane Winterbotham, publishing director at Walker Books, has acquired world rights in Sticky McStickstick and a second picture book, Neighbour’s Cat, from Charles Walker at United Agents.

Of her refusal to discuss Alan, he says, “It’s incredibly gutsy, but at the same time quite worrying that she thought she couldn’t, or shouldn’t, mention it. The English Association awarded Michael Rosen’s Sad Book, illustrated by Quentin Blake (Walker Books), an Exceptional Award for the Best Children’s Illustrated Books of 2004, in the 4-11 age range. In March 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Rosen was admitted to hospital with suspected COVID-19.

With the support of doctors and nurses — and his trusty NHS walking stick, that he named 'Sticky — he manages to embark on the slow steps to recovery.
