There are quite a few animals that feature in my latest book, and I thought it would be fun if I handed over the naming of them to my readers. I did this on my Facebook page and we named thirteen animals.
It was a lot of fun reading the suggestions and seeing so many people getting involved. Each animal name suggestion was put into a bowl, with one (or three, in the case of the chickens!) picked at random. Whoever the suggestion belonged to will have their name put into the acknowledgements when the book is published!
Here are the names - and who suggested them:
Daisy, suggested by Sharon Smith
Chow Mein, suggested by Gemma Tierney
Bianca, suggested by Gisele Le Corre
Patty, suggested by Maggie Rollison
Claude, suggested by Anne Maria Seymour
Pumpkin, suggested by Rae Kenny-Rife
Sophie, suggested by Jo Jackson
Tommy, Timmy & Tammy, suggested by Melissa Elizabeth
Rupert, suggested by Stephanie-Jayne Matthews
Honey, suggested by Patricia Scott
Violet, suggested by Maggie Ewing
