Those who followed the children’s illustration competition for the Ickabog will remember how many superb entries we had from India. I’m so happy my trust (thanks to the book buyers!) is able to do this #OxygenForIndia https://t.co/eXMEZA8hvd
Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who bought a copy of The Ickabog. As a result, my charitable trust continues to be able to support those worst affected by the pandemic #COVIDIndia https://t.co/UZTEiqMfDZ
Thanks to the generosity of everyone who bought a copy of The Ickabog, my charitable trust has now sent out millions of pounds to those affected by the pandemic. Given that the story had already been put out for free, I'm flabbergasted. You're incredible.
I’m devastated to learn of the death of Helen McCrory, an extraordinary actress and a wonderful woman who’s left us far too soon. My deepest condolences to her family, especially her husband and children. Simply heartbreaking news.
'All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.'

Neil just came emerged from the garage with these! Now having a Covid-compliant launch party, ie, new mug of tea. Dogs assuming role of jaded critics who’d rather be at home. https://t.co/EZRv9pur81
The Ickabog is published today, complete with STUNNING pictures created by young illustrators around the world! I’m donating my royalties to my charitable Trust, Volant, to help medical and frontline charities support vulnerable groups impacted by Covid-19. https://t.co/RKTUidveMS
We couldn't have done it without you! You're all AMAZING!
DELIGHTED to say that the wonderful @stephenfry has read the audiobook of #TheIckabog, which will be available tomorrow!

#TheIckabog will be available to buy on November 10. My royalties will be donated to medical and frontline charities supporting those worst affected by Covid-19. 2/2
Just received my first published copy of #TheIckabog! The winners’ illustrations bring the story alive even more beautifully than I’d imagined. Thank you to EVERYONE who sent in pictures. You reminded me just how much I love writing for young people. 1/2 https://t.co/hsDdZO3PUf
This is also an opportunity to express my gratitude once more to the thousands of people who’ve sent me personal emails and letters of support. I’m trying to respond to all of them, so please forgive me if I haven’t yet got to yours! 3/X
(though believe me, I’m EXTREMELY grateful on that level), but because the signatories are showing solidarity with all the women who’re currently speaking up for their own rights and facing threats of violence and even death in return. 2/3
My weekend was heavy (in the very best sense!) on family and light on reading the news, so I only realised this morning that this letter appeared in the Sunday Times yesterday. I'm profoundly grateful to all the signatories, not only on a personal level, 1/3 https://t.co/4j7B2RGhoV
If you are (or know) a witch who wants one of these, don't buy from cynical chancers. I got my T-shirt from @Wild_Womyn #supportwomenrunbusinesses
