Veronica was in Cape Town to meet Landy and Friends fans for a couple of weeks.
In one of the many schools she visited,
the children were entering a National Quiz on ‘Fender and the Cliff Rescue’ so they got some some extra special coaching! It was great to read Fender Goes to Africa to schools at the foothill of Table Mountain!

A MUST HAVE BOOK FOR ALL DEFENDER FANS! Everyone besides Jack are the real people who were working on Defender two weeks before production ceased in January 2016
In early January 2016 Veronica visited the Solihull Plant, met the staff and enjoyed the Defender factory tour. She also had great fun driving on the famous Land Rover Experience track! Then Land Rover presented her with a challenge … and she took Landy to visit the factory the next week. Landy at the Factory is the outcome of this visit – this special edition book is a bit of Land Rover History!
South African Readers – The Landybooks are now also published in South Africa by Penguin Random House and are available locally.
Veronica continues to visit many schools in Devon and Cornwall, to meet her readers and talk about writing and illustrating her books.
She enjoys the company of all the children and teachers and is very pleased that many children are now writing their own Landy tales!
