About Barbara Godwin

I love quirky characters - skeletons, ghosts, machines, inventors, alligators, aliens, insects, pirates - especially when they are mixed up with weird happenings and a tiny bit of magic. When I was little, running round our big back garden on the Isle Of Wight, I wanted to be in Robin Hood's band or go on adventures like Alices's. People in books were funny, scary, sad or warm-hearted, mysterious or magical. They felt real and I made up my own stories before I could write.

After that, I wrote them for myself, then for my daughter, and now for my granddaughter - and I still write them for that little girl who had adventures in the big back garden. I've never truly grown up.

My stories are being illustrated, and published.

So lots more to come.

Now I live in Surrey with my daughter, son-in-law and my granddaughter. I used to have a dog called Paddy, a budgie called Ringo, a rabbit called Flipper, a cat called Issy and lots of chickens. We don't have pets at the moment, but we want a dog later on. Lots of animals creep into my stories and they're always fun and magical to have around.

Who knows what is really real and what isn't?

What a fun read! Funny story with some silly animals that really brought it to life. The mum's phone call to the pizza place that had run out of dough really made me laugh! :) The illustrations were fun too!

Review by: Sally Startup on April 06, 2013 :
Full of endearing characters, not least the pirates, in spite of all the disruption they cause. This story is very funny. It is perfect for children to read alone or for adults to read aloud. Beneath the humour is a depth of consideration that adds very much to the story's uplifting tone. Evie and her dad need to be both tactful and clever to handle a hilariously difficult situation. The illustrations are clear and cheerful, with some enchanting details, such as the baby elephant's pirate earing.
