In my own books, I don't do talking animals or flights to the Moon or anything like that.

I do real life, and these dramas are very important to my readership: things like getting your boots on the right feet; going to a party without your mum and with your security blanket and putting your security blanket down in order to join in; having a babysitter and there's a burst pipe and water comes in.
