Babette absolutely loves to receive messages from all her lovely readers about how much they enjoy her books, and recently received a great letter from 12 year old super fan William Kirwin…

Hi, my name is William Kirwin, I won a contest and got a certificate that said: “This is to certify that William Kirwin has been ordained as a Knight of the Royal Pen of the Kingdom of Totaloona for his services of fan mail writing, by order of Princess Smarty Pants of Totaloona. ARISE SIR WILLIAM, you are a superstar!”

I just wanted to say that that was one of the best days of my life, I am twelve and read True Love still and I also read Doctor Dog. I was wondering if we could be email pals, but I know you are busy so it’s ok if we can’t.

Thank you,


What a fantastic email to receive! Thanks William!
