This week, we're continuing our #rememberingmal campaign in honour of the much-missed Mal Peet and the PB publication of The Murdstone Trilogy.

We've been overwhelmed by the heartfelt responses we've had in so far - testimony to the way in which Mal made a lasting impression on everyone who met him, or read him.

Today is a really special day as it marks the pb release of The Murdstone Trilogy, by our dear friend Mal Peet.

Since his death earlier this year it has been overwhelming to see so many plaudits roll in, celebrating Mal the writer and Mal the man, and over the next few weeks we would love you to share more of your memories.
