I'm delighted to announce that my latest book Can Such Things Be? is being published this month (June).
Dedicated to the memory of my good friend Thomas-Toki Wartooth Mccall, it is packed with hilarious, revolting and unforgettable rhymes.
From a magpie with a love of all things poop to the ghost of William Shakespeare, readers will meet characters they won’t find elsewhere.
Imaginative, fun and hilarious, Can Such Things Be? is perfect for both reluctant readers and children who love to read.
Reminiscent of authors such as Roald Dahl and David Walliams, Can Such Things Be? follows the success of my previous children’s books. It will be enjoyed by young readers aged 7-11 years and those who enjoy humorous poetry.
"Well-written, full of fun and hard to put down!"
"One of the best books I've read in a long time."
"Imaginative, funny, full of giggles and a wonderful story."
