“I am so proud of the book, I love it.
It’s such a beautiful book.
It was a love letter to people that love dogs.
There are dogs in the book.
They’re dogs that I love and I love their personalities, their personality.
That’s what I love about the book,” she said.
She also praised the book for being an “open book” and not being tied down to a single story.
“There are two dogs, there’s two people, and they’re both dogs, and you know, one is the human and the other is a dog, but they’re connected.
It is not a one-dimensional relationship,” she explained.
The best-seller list also includes some classics, including ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and ‘The Princess Bride’, as well as more recent releases.
The book is one of the most widely-read titles in the UK, and has sold over a million copies worldwide.
Roberts has previously spoken about the importance of reading for younger readers, and said she felt her children were “really keen” to read, and that her “love for books” had given her the confidence to write.
The author has also revealed what her favourite book is.
“It’s the best book of all time, it’s a true love letter,” she told The Guardian, saying it was one of her favourite books ever.
“The best book is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoos,” she added.
“For me, it is one, two, three, four, five.
It really is one.”
