Ladybird Spoofs and My Parents’ Wedding!

Well you probably may know from my ‘It Runs In the Family’ section that I have a family history with Ladybirds, and so this is why my parents wedding which was used for the illustration in the original book ‘The Hotel’ has now become famous again!! You’ll find it in ‘The Wife’ and ‘The Husband’.

Hogbert’s Spring is Here!














Hogbert’s Spring has just been published by Parragon USA.

It’s another of my very own creations about a little creature discovering Spring for the first time.

Spring is on it’s way… But what is Spring? wonders Hogbert. Is it a caterpillar? Is it a nest of eggs? Is it a strange fluffy cloud that says ‘Baa’? As the garden’s creatures grow and change, and the wild flowers and leaves unfold, slowly, slowly, the secret of spring is revealed!
