Stop #6 on my Children’s Fiction Book Tour is back on ‘It’s Not All Gravy’ – this time for a chat and a lovely glass of wine with Maryann, tlaking about the about inspiration behind Alf The Workshop Dog.

Here’s the REAL Alf who spends his days in an busy inner-city bus garage.

With a daughter who is a graphic artist she was particularly interested in the illustrations in the book.
