When the Wind Blew
I am proud to introduce Big Bear and Little Bear. They appear in my new book 'When The Wind Blew'. I illustrated and wrote this one, so it's all my fault if you don't like it... but you will, you will, I'm sure! The story begins with a wild storm in the nig...

I am proud to introduce Big Bear and Little Bear. They appear in my new book 'When The Wind Blew'.
I illustrated and wrote this one, so it's all my fault if you don't like it... but you will, you will, I'm sure!

The story begins with a wild storm in the night. The two bears are safe in their den, but wake in the morning to find that the wind has blown down all the trees in their beloved forest! Big Bear helps Little Bear understand what has happened and how they will have to find a new home. When you are a little bear big life changes can be worrying and hard to deal with, but if you have a big bear who loves you, a bear who is positive and calm and kind, well... then obstacles can be overcome without too much anxiety. Life will move forward, and sometimes, with a little luck, life can become a little better.

I'm delighted to report that 'When the Wind Blew' will become available to buy 15th August 2017, to be published by Sleeping Bear Press.

Itsy Bitsy Spider
Here are two little board books that I illustrated for 'Sleeping Bear Press'. I really do hope that there'll be more as I absolutely loved designing these two classic nursery songs. This blog post concerns a garden full of little creatures and a soggy spide...

The Hyde Park Squirrels
Hyde Park Squirrels is a series of books devised and written by Nick Croydon and illustrated by yours truly. It's been such a joy illustrating these books. The story has allowed me to do what I love most... draw anthropomorphic characters having serious adv...

Thrilled by this lovely review of 'Grandpa Loves You':

5.0 out of 5 stars The pictures are adorable and even though my granddaughter is just a baby, July 8, 2016
By Kristi B.

Very cute book! I already have the Grandma Loves You book by Helen Foster James and when I saw this book, I decided I should purchase it for my granddaughter. This book has a really cute story that is similar to the Grandma story and yet has its own twist to it. The pictures are adorable and even though my granddaughter is just a baby, she was mesmerized by the drawings. It is a quick read but a book you will want to read over and over to your grandchild until it is memorized. Its a touching story for any grandfather to a grandchild.
