My first children’s book was published a few days ago.
It’s a big hardback book with 16 excerpts from 16 stories, and I illustrated ‘Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh’. Each story is illustrated by different, brilliant and unique artists. The other stories include ‘The Hodgeheg’, ‘The Wind in the Willows’ and ‘Gobbolino the Witches Cat’.
I think this book is a really good introduction for the child to get interested in the classic stories, then if they like what they read, they can go and get the whole book. So watch out libraries and bookshops, the classic animal stories will be flying off the shelves!
