Jen Carney is the debut author/ illustrator of The Accidental Diary of B.U.G. - the first in a brand new series that introduces us to the hilarious world of Billie Upton Green.
Jen wanted to write a laugh out loud, illustrated book that celebrated diverse, contemporary and slightly bonkers families.
Our early readers loved the book saying:
"I thought this book was hilarious, so many times I had to stop reading and go to see my mum to share with her what was making me laugh so much." Zukuto, aged 9
"I LOVED this book. It was so funny!" Booooook aged 10
"It made me laugh out loud… The book is all about making friends, misunderstandings and how any kind of family is normal." Sabrina, aged 7
We invited author and illustrator Jen to tell us more about how (and why) she wrote the book - read on for her brilliant guest blog.
