It's finally here, a new year and the start of the teenies!
The (very icy!) first day of the new school term I was at Swindon Village Primary School kicking off their book week.

If you want to book me for a school visit this year it's best to contact me at least a month in advance to be sure of availability. I don't mind receiving last minute panic email requests but I can't guarantee I'll be able to make it. Remember spring / summer is usually my busiest time of year.

There's lots of writing and illustration work for me to be getting on with too, I really am a busy bee.
I've got some exciting new book projects involving vicious white rabbits, raccoon bandits, crime fighting kids and a mysterious spoon of doom!

I've got a new picture book I've illustrated coming out in Spring- That's THE SLEEP SHEEP
I've also got a new fiction book I've illustrated out this month THE GREAT HAMSTER MASSACRE

Watch out for the yummy (more affordable) ERROLL paperback and CROCODILES ARE THE BEST ANIMALS OF ALL! which is also out in paperback this year.

Onwards and upwards!

Here's a scary pic...
