Mummy and Daddy Have Matching Tattoos by Margaretta James
A little girl is curious about all the weird and wonderful tattoos belonging to her family members. One family member, in particular, has a secret tattoo. The way her family finally sees the tattoo is a little bit shocking (for a four-year-old)! A fun rhyming book for the under eights.
Interview with author Margaretta James by Tiffany Turner from Indie Children’s Authors Connection:
Got someone in the family with tattoos? Well, here is a great gift idea! Plus, it’s a great way to share something that is becoming more of a passed down tradition. I was able to interview Margaretta James, the author of the book “Mummy and Daddy Have Matching Tattoos”. Margaretta is a teacher and writer. She likes to focus her writing on contemporary family issues. I had a chance to sit down and talk with her about her memories of reading as a child, subjects should would like to explore in her writing, and what writing means to her.
- What is your favorite memory from reading as a child?
Margaretta James: I loved it when my mother would spend all afternoon reading traditional tales to us.
- What subjects would you like to write about in future projects?
Margaretta James: I am currently working on my novel set in the Australian outback. It is slowly taking shape; however, I keep getting new ideas for children’s picture books!
- What is writing to you in one sentence?
Margaretta James: Writing is a compulsion and a joy. I become so immersed that days fly by!
