Hello and welcome to the website of
author and storyteller
What a difference a few weeks makes! I have been out enjoying celebrating books and stories in so many lovely schools and now will be working from home.
In this difficult time of the Corona virus outbreak I want to send everyone my best wishes.
It's available here as a free download pdf. Do share it with your family and friends. Send us your poems, stories and illustrations.
Why not make your own superhero?
Download the PDF for instructions
Make your own paper table cloth story. Download the pdf to help you plan your story. Paper tablecloths can be bought in pound shops and supermarkets, or why not use lining wallpaper.
You will find plenty of activities to download on my individual book pages.
If any child wants to write a story, poem or illustration I would be delighted to showcase it on my website
(with parental permission).
How about creating a story on a paper table cloth?
Here's a fabulous one made by a family at Cypress Primary where I'm Patron of Reading.
