Hello! I'm Michelle Robinson,
I love writing stories that make me laugh. Funny books cheer us up when we're sad or worried - it does us all good to smile. So,
BRING ON THE CROSS-DRESSING MARTIANS!
One of my books went to space.
I like to mention this a lot. Wouldn't you? Having your book read to planet Earth from the International Space Station as a CBeebies Bedtime Story is a pretty big deal. Nick East is the same - he illustrated the book and he never shuts up about it. He's all. 'Did you know one of my books went to space with ESA astronaut Tim Peake?' Put a sock in it, East. For the record, the book we're always banging on about is called 'Goodnight Spaceman' - hey, did I tell you it went to space?
