Matt Haig to Release ‘Heartwarming’ Children’s Book

By October 13, 2018 New Releases

Best-selling author Matt Haig has helped many with his unique brand of speculative fiction and nonfiction works and can often be found on Twitter speaking a lot of sense about mental health issues and the ways in which we can all help ourselves to live our best lives.

His best-selling nonfiction work Reasons to Stay Alive was a number one Sunday Times bestseller spending 46 weeks in the top ten, and more recently How to Stop Time was nominated for several awards and is said to have been optioned for film.




Haig’s bestselling children’s book to date is A Boy Called Christmas, another of his books that is currently being adapted for the big screen, and next week sees the release of another children’s book from the author as The Truth Pixie hits our shelves.

The blurb reads “Wherever she is, whatever the day, she has only one kind of thing to say. Just as cats go miaow and cows go moo, The Truth Pixie can say only things that are true.”

The Truth Pixie will be released on October 18th and is available for pre-order now. Matt Haig took to Twitter this week to give readers a sneak peek at the book, and we’re already in love!
