I write and draw a fortnightly newsletter of stories, poems and useful ideas for people who teach or work with children. All my best free things are here.
🚫 Don’t Dig (in progress) is a graphic novel for young children that people of all ages will love.
👦 The Boy Who Fell to Bits is the very nearly true story of a boy who literally fell to bits. It’s also about recovering from trauma and sadness. (You can most likely buy The Boy Who Fell to Bits from your country’s Amazon.)
🐦 Flock is a completely useless field guide to birds that don’t exist, sort of.
After writing and drawing, helping children realise how great they are at writing and drawing and creating is my very favourite thing in the world. A day trading ideas with a group of primary pupils is a very good day indeed. (Teachers: We always end up with some really strong evidence of learning. Hooray!)
I’d love to spend some time with your school, club or group.
I make the things that help you communicate and sell your things. If you have found the thing you love to do – if you really believe in your product, I would love to talk to you about designing your your logo, book, packaging, trade show stand, words, product name, etc.
I believe in…
(in no particular order)
learning your craft,
paying attention to the details,
trying and failing and trying again,
finding the win-win (but if I’ve got it to take sides, I will be with the ones getting squished by the guys at the top),
people who invest in children,
not eating animals,
learning every day,
trying new things,
learning as I go,
great stories told well,
words used effectively,
making good art,
my family, and
Worthington’s White Shield IPA.
