The Big Bad Book! On reading, writing and drawing books for children

Children’s books are fun – and thought-provoking and exciting. But now and again they can be a little scary. And making children’s books is tricky stuff. You need to work hard, stay strong and remember how to have fun. It also helps to have a strong sense of who you are in the industry. Of course, I’m a wolf…

So, as a lover and maker of children’s books, I’ve made THE BIG BAD BOOK – a place to share my work in progress, ideas and scribbles, and any tips I pick up along the way. Stay in touch, and hopefully we can all stay strong, brave and fierce together – making, enjoying and sharing great kids books!
