New book – Pink Lion!

My new picture book (Walker Books 2017) tells the story of Arnold, whose happy-go-lucky existence with his flamingo family is challenged by the arrival of some very bouncy cousins, who teach him what turns out to be a very useful new skill…
It’s all about identity, and the importance of being yourself – you can read more about how the story came into being here. It’s particularly exciting for me as it’s the first book I have illustrated AND written. Watch the video below for a taste of the book – and listen to the fabulous soundtrack that Phoebe McFarlane composed specially for Pink Lion.

I’m looking forward to visiting some bookshops this summer to do some storytelling and Pink Lion-ish craft activities – first up is Queen’s Park Bookshop on Sunday July 2nd, 11-12.30. Do come along!
