I am live in the ancient town of Sherborne, Dorset, in England, with my Bookseller and Songwriter wife Helen..
I have six children, Rowan, Felix, Gus, Kit, Arthur and Tabitha.
For the past few years, despite a rigorous publishing schedule, I have spent as much time as I can out on the road, giving inspirational talks and fun drawing and pop-up workshops to children (and their parents!) in schools, libraries and literary festivals, from Edinburgh, Cheltenham and Glastonbury.

I have worked in the UK, Italy and America, in a great diversity of settings, the more challenging the better!
The visits start with the simplest of readings, through explanations of the process of creating and producing a children's book, to drawing workshops and hands on pop-up workshops. I am happy to work with all sizes of groups. I have found working with children with special needs to be particularly rewarding.
I am a passionate advocate for the world of children's books and as the years pass, I have become more and more drawn to working with and empowering young children to expand their creativity through this magical world.

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
It is almost identical to Dinosaur Roar and since they don't let you see some pages how could one know that....there are a lot of other opposites they could have used..

Format: Board book
I was disappointed in this book. The illustrator has a great, vibrant style but I felt that some of the pictures didn't really depict the words in the text. The facial expressions & body language on the sad, grumpy, and happy dinosaurs were not something that I think my child would be able to clearly identify as those emotions. I don't know that I'd be able to label them correctly on my first try if the text were removed. While the "bad" dinosaur was vividly shown to be threatening a smaller dinosaur, the "good" dinosaur was just standing there chewing on a log or something. I wouldn't be able to identify that as "good" so much as content or calm. The sweet, lumpy & spiky dinosaurs were well done.
