Eleanor Updale came to speak at an event I was running recently and it was lovely to see her again.  I say ‘again’ but neither of us can remember where we first met, although we both recall the meeting and I have a signed copy of Montmorency as proof.  We think it might have been at a Youth Libraries Group conference about ten years ago.  Since then Eleanor has gone on to write more books about Montmorency and his friends and two stand alone novels.  Her most recent offering is The Last Minute which I think is a complete triumph but you can read my opinion in The Scotsman next Saturday.  The exciting news, however, is that there is to be a new Montmorency novel.  Can’t wait!
