TEN LITTLE BUGS chosen as one of Waterstones' BEST BOOKS 2023! 


TEN LITTLE BUGS has been chosen as one of WATERSTONES' BEST BOOKS 2023! (Baby and Toddler books) This is a huge thrill and a big honour to be included amongst such lofty company.

The TEN LITTLE BUGS came crawling out from the undergrowth and into bookshops everywhere in August 2023. Theirs is the latest book in the multi-million selling TEN LITTLE series, published by Orchard (@hachettekids). The Jitterbugs are preparing for the Moonbeam Ball, to take place in the Bug Hotel. The Queen Bee and the Emperor Dragonfly will both be there, but there's so much to do... and so much to go wrong! Can you guess which famous insect band they find to play the music?   Check out the 'Ten Little' books page for more info.

Another New Book!

Meanwhile, away from the Ten Littles, I was delighted when a new picture book of mine - Meet the Penguins - was published recently by the excellent team at Oxford University Press. This time I've both written and illustrated the story. Many grateful thanks to all involved and to Pete Marley and Lizzie Smart in particular.

The Penguins have travelled a long way and they really want to make some new friends. But nobody seems to want to play...

Hope you enjoy.
