(You are not as impressed as I am? Ah well, I take my pleasures where I can.)
Talking about which, I saw Dave McKean's sketches for the illustrations for the US edition of CORALINE yesterday -- wonderful things. And when he finishes them, he does the illustrations for our picture book The Wolves In The Walls. Which is exciting. Not sure when that'll come out, mind you -- I hope that Harper will release it in 2002, although they might want to avoid distracting attention from Coraline.
